About the Match
The entire third day of the test match was washed out without a single ball being bowled. It was a huge disappointment for both the teams as they were evenly poised and looking press home the advantage.
The loss of one day from the match though should still allow a result to be reached since the first innings of both teams is almost over. There is also the possibility of more time being lost from this match.
The current situation where New Zealand trail Bangladesh by 29 runs with only three wickets in hand favors the visiting side just a little as they have the possibility of picking up quick wickets and then trying to put a score on the board.
The rain could also make the conditions more favorable for the fast bowlers and actually even out the difference between the quality of fast bowlers on both sides.
Our Current pick remains New Zealand because of their greater experience and the benefits of home conditions. The hosts should be able to win this one even though a full day has been lost to rain
