New Zealand is all set to field a second-string side against Bangladesh after their England assignment.

Lockie Ferguson has been given the reins to lead this side which is not going to have many big names.

Moreover, this is going to be an ODI series that will begin on the 21st of September.

Meanwhile, the selection committee has also decided to rest many major players so that they can be fresh.

Tom Latham will also be sitting on the bench for this series although he is the stand-in skipper.

Other players who have been rested apart from Latham are Devon Conway, Matt Henry, Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, and Tim Southee.

Furthermore, Mark Chapman and James Neesham weren’t considered for selection because of the birth of their respective children.

On the other hand, head coach Gary Stead will also not participate in this series with batting coach, Luke Ronchi taking over for him.

The new players who will be playing in this series are Dean Foxcroft, Cole McConchie, Dane Cleaver, and Rachin Ravindra.

New Zealand has put in below-average performances against England

Meanwhile, in the ongoing series, New Zealand has not been par in their performances against England.

After finishing off their assignments against England and Bangladesh, the Blackcaps will head straight to India for their first warm-up game against Pakistan on the 29th of September.

Additionally, New Zealand will face England yet again in the marquee event on the 5th of October.
