Team News: New Zealand won their first game against Sri Lanka and dominated in every department. They ruthlessly restricted the Lankans to just 136 runs which the Kiwi openers easily chased down. New Zealand swing attack is something that can trouble the opponents and win matches. Trent Boult has already been tested and Tim Southee is yet to show his magic. Talking about batting line up, Kiwi batters hav been impressing everyone since the fist warm-up against India. Going by history and numbers, New Zealand will have a certain advantage over Bangladesh in this match.
Bangladesh have impressed everyone in their last match against South Africa. They scored their highest ODI team total and defeated the Proteas. The entire batting line up proved them worthy against the bowling attack of Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi. The bowlers also showed their skills to send batters like Quinton de Kock, Faf du Plessis and so on. Bangladesh can now depend on the bowlers Mustafizur Rahman, Mohammad Saifuddin along with the spin duo Shakib and Mehidy Hasan.
Pitch: Reportedly this will be a batting friendly pitch which may favor bowlers according to the weather.
Weather: A cloudy weather which will be beneficial for the seam bowlers. Chances for rain are very low so we can expect a good match.Tweets by BCBtigers
