Bangladesh team is all set for their first tour after the pandemic halt and they are scheduled to play 3 ODIs & 3 T20Is. They start off with the ODI matches and Tamim Iqbal has been appointed as the skipper for the ODI team. They do not have a good record in the New Zealand soil and are yet to get their maiden victory. New Zealand on the other hand are a force to reckon in all formats in their home and will be eager to win the opening match to set the tone of the series.

New Zealand Preview

Tom Latham will lead the team in the absence of regular skipper Kane Williamson in the ODIs. Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, James Neesham, and Devon Conway are expected to slot in the batting order and Ross Taylor will miss this match owing to a niggle. Will Young or Mark Chapman will fight out for that spot in the playing XI.

Tim Southee, Trent Boult, and Matt Henry are expected to slot in as the pace bowlers in the playing XI with a toss-up between Kyle Jamieson and All-rounder Daryll Mitchell for the fourth seamer`s slot. Mitchell Santner is the lone spinner in the squad and is expected to slot in the XI in this match.

Top players to bet on:

Martin Guptill – Guptill had an excellent T20I series against Australia recently with 218 runs at a strike rate of 160 and he will look to translate his form into the T20I format too.  

Mitchell Santner – Santner has evolved as a bowler in the last 1-2 year and has been effective with the ball in middle overs especially. He will look to strangle the batsmen and pick crucial wickets in the middle overs.

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Tom latham (C & Wk), Martin Guptill, Devon Conway, Henry Nicholls, James Neesham, Tim Southee, Kyle Jamieson, Trent Boult, Matt Henry, Mitchell Santner, Will Young

New Zealand Actual Playing XI:

Mitchell Santner, Devon Conway, Daryl Mitchell, Henry Nicholls, Matt Henry, Trent Boult, Will Young, Martin Guptill, James Neesham, Tom Latham, Kyle Jamieson

Bangladesh Preview

Skipper Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das will open the batting with Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Soumya Sarkar expected to slot in the middle order. Mohammed Mithun, Najmul Shanto and Mosadek Hossain will fight for the remaining one slot in the batting order vacant due to absence of Shakib Al Hasan.

Their pace attack has a lot of quality players with the likes of Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Rubel Hossain, Al-Amin Hossain, and Hasun Mahmud in the squad. We expect Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, and Hasun Mahmud to start in the playing XI alongside pace all-rounder Mohammed Saifuddin. Mehdi Hasan will take care of the spin bowling duties.

Top players to bet on:

Tamim Iqbal – Tamim has scores of 64, 50, & 44 in the last 3 ODI matches he played against West Indies recently. He will look to lead the team from the front with his performances with the bat in this match.  

Mustafizur Rahman – Mustafizur picked up 6 wickets at an economy rate of less than 3 RPO and an average of less than 10 RPO in their last series. He will look to trouble the batsmen with his variations in this series too.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing XI:

Liton Das, Tamim Iqbal (c), Mosadek Hossain, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Soumya Sarkar, Mahmudullah, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Hasun mahmud

Bangladesh Actual Playing XI:

Mehidy Hasan, Hasan Mahmud, Mahmudullah, Liton Das, Mahedi Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Mithun, Mushfiqur Rahim

Weather Conditions

Dunedin will have a bright and sunny weather on the match day with no chances of rain interruptions as per weather forecasters.

Venue Details

University Oval is a good batting pitch where batsmen will enjoy the ball coming onto the bat nicely. New Zealand scored 330 runs against Bangladesh in their last match played here. We expect a run feats of around 280-300 runs in this match too.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the latest trend in the limited overs formats and teams are comfortable chasing down any target in front of them. We expect both captains to chase the total if they win the toss.  

New Zealand are a formidable side in the home conditions against any oppositions and have a brilliant record for a long time. They will look to continue their winnings streak in the home matches and continue the misery of Bangladesh in these conditions. Bangladesh have experienced players in the batting and bowling attack and this has been their best pace attack on tour in memory. They will look to set their record straight in the kiwi soil with their maiden victory in this match. But, we expect New Zealand to win this match and go 1-0 up in the series.

New Zealand will win the match
