Chittagong, Bangladesh: Bangladesh has loaded up with spinners to beat New Zealand in the opening match of a two-test cricket series on a refurbished pitch at Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.






Because the pitch is expected to be low and slow, Bangladesh has accommodated three specialist spinners and a part-timer in its 14-man squad for the first test beginning on Wednesday.

Captain Mishfiqur Rahim is confident spinners will find some extra advantage from the untested pitch, as the last game played here was in December 2011.

It means the prospects for Shakib Al Hasan, Sohag Gazi and Abdur Razzak are brighter, while part-time spinner Mahmudullah could also play a leading role in trying to set up Bangladesh's first win over the Black Caps.
