It may not be the most headline-grabbing series on the international cricket calendar, but for Bangladesh and New Zealand, it represents an important period of the year.

For Bangladesh, this series is a chance to close the gap between themselves and Zimbabwe in the official ICC Test Rankings following a string of positive results for the African nation that have propelled them above their subcontinental counterparts.

Meanwhile, for New Zealand, this trip to Bangladesh is an opportunity to reclaim the feeling of victory in the Test arena after an alarmingly poor run of results over the last 12 months.

With both teams desperately needing to locate success, it's certain we'll see a hard-fought series with the New Zealanders set to be tested to a far greater degree than most would believe.

Could the home side cause an upset? Who will stamp their authority on the series?

Here are our predictions ahead of the first Test beginning on Wednesday.
