Have the Black Caps reached an all-time low?


The Black Caps' latest ODI series whitewash to Bangladesh adds another chapter to what has been a pretty dark year for the New Zealand cricket side that began when they were bowled out for just 45 against South Africa in Newlands.

They bounced back from that embarrassing innings with a historic ODI series win in South Africa but there was been little to celebrate since.

Over the past 18 months the Black Caps have won seven of 24 ODIs, just one of their last 15 test matches and five of 17 Twenty20 internationals.

The Black Caps were missing captain Brendon McCullum and one of their top batsmen in Kane Williamson overnight but they weren't facing the top Bangladesh XI either.

What's next for this side which is ranked 8th in the world in all forms of the game? Five limited-overs internationals await them against a significantly stronger nation in Sri Lanka before they return for the summer to host the West Indies and India.

Why is this side failing to perform? Will they change their form when they return home? Have your say below.
