Despite losing thirteen players, including their former captain and best batsman Habibul Bashar, to the new Indian Cricket League, Bangladesh won the one-day series

 

The tour started with a washed out warm-up match and the New Zealanders were ill-prepared for the one-day series, the first time that new ‘powerplay’ rules came into effect

However, New Zealand won the three-match series 2-1

 

New Zealand won at Chittagong and took won the two-Test series 1-0 after the rain-affected second Test petered out to a draw.
