<p>Hathurusingha said to reporters, “I will have a one-on-one chat if I see any action of complacency.”</p>
<p>He said, “We have to start from zero again.” “We are trying to start this game like we started the Sylhet game — the same anxiety, intensity, hope, and aims.”</p>
<p>After placing last in the previous two cycles of the World Test Championship, Bangladesh’s victory in the inaugural Test enabled them to get off to a winning start in the current cycle.</p>
<p>According to Hathurusingha, Bangladesh should aim to win every game at home in the next cycle before focusing on winning away from home.</p>
<p>“Our young players are capable of playing in any conditions,” he said.</p>
<p>Tim Southee, the captain of New Zealand, predicted that both teams would use spin to their advantage in the second Test.</p>
<p>Southee told reporters, “I think you come to this part of the world, you expect the spinners to play a big role.”</p>
<p>“We saw that in the first Test match, and we’re expecting similar in the second Test”.</p>
<p>In the previous 12 Test matches played at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka, Bangladesh has won seven of them, one against each of Australia and England.</p>
<p>Since their 2008 victory in Chittagong by three wickets, the Kiwis have not won a Test match in Bangladesh.</p>
<p>Before the team collapsed to loss in the first Test of this series, their following three Tests finished in draws.</p>
<p>In the ODI portion of this trip, which was held before of the ODI World Cup in nearby India, New Zealand ended their 15-year drought for a series win in the nation by defeating Bangladesh 2-0.</p>
