nz vs ban Match Prediction & Analysis

Bangladesh are going down without a stiff fight against this strong Kiwi side and will hope the change of formats will change their fortunes. But, they are left without the services of Tamim Iqbal who will miss this series owing to his personal reasons. Bangladesh also face a huge baggage of losses in their heads and will need to come out of the rout all guns blazing to win their first match. New Zealand team will be exceptionally satisfied with the way their new incoming players are performing and will look to strengthen their core of the team in this series ahead of the T20 World Cup later this year.

Teams Preview

New Zealand Preview

Devon Conway (126 runs) and Daryl Mitchell (100* runs) combined together to share a record 159 run partnership to resurrect their team from 120/4 to 279/5 in the middle overs in the last ODI match. Glenn Philips, Will Young, Finn Allen and Mark Chapman will form the core of the batting line-up in the absence of regular players.

Tim Southee will lead the T20I side with the likes of returning Lockie Ferguson, Adam Milne, and Hamish Bennett for company in the pace department. Ish Sodhi and Todd Astle are the spinners in the squad and will have a huge role to play in the T20Is.

Top players to bet on:

Devon Conway – Conway had a brilliant ODI series with 225 runs including a century and a half-century in the 3 matches. He will look to continue his red hot form into the T20Is too.

Ish Sodhi – Ish Sodhi picked up 12 wickets in the last T20I series against Australia and will look to pick wickets consistently in the middle overs in this series too.  He will be the lead spinner of the team.

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Martin Guptill, Devon Conway, Glenn Philips, Finn Allen, Daryl Mitchell, Mark Chapman/Will Young, Tim Southee (C), Adam Milne, Lockie Ferguson, Ish Sodhi, Hamish Bennett

Bangladesh Preview

Mahmudullah will lead the Bangladesh team in the absence of Tamim Iqbal.  Mohammed Mithun and Mahmuduulah were the only 2 players to have a good score in the ODIs. Mushfiqur Rahim, Soumya Sarkar, and Liton Das will be eager to prove themselves after a poor ODI series recently.

Mustafizur Rahman and Rubel Hossain will be their first choice pacers with a face-off between Mohammed Saifuddin and Taskin Ahmed for the third pacer`s slot. Spinners Mahedi Hasan and Mehidy Hasan are expected to play in the starting XI unless they feel the pitch will aid faster bowlers greatly.

Top players to bet on:

Mahmudullah – Mahmudullah scored 76 runs off 74 balls and was the only batsmen to paly fluently in the last ODI match. This knock will give huge confidence to him and will look to continue his aggressive batting in the T20Is too.

Mustafizur Rahman – Mustafizur did not have a good time in the ODIs but will be expected to lead the bowling attack in the T20is. He must use his cutters and variations to great effect to control the batsmen in crucial junctures.  

Bangladesh Predicted Playing XI:

Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Najmal Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hasan, Mahedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Rubel  Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman

Weather Conditions

Hamilton is expected to have slightly overcast conditions on the match day and rain might make its presence in this match.

Venue Details

Seddon Park will have a good balance between the bat and ball. Pacers will enjoy early swing on this venue and extra bounce might trouble the batters too. We expect the average scores to be around 160-170 runs on this venue.

Toss: To Bowl

Both teams will look to chase down the total and with rain threat DLS equation might also come into consideration at any point.

NZ vs BAN Winning Prediction

New Zealand are one of the strong teams in their home conditions against any7 oppositions. Despite missing a lot of regular players they have quality players like Finn Allen, Glenn Philips, and Devon Conway in their batting order. Bangladesh batsmen need to apply themselves better on these swinging conditions and bat more sensibly.  But, we expect New Zealand to win this match and continue their unbeaten streak against Bangladesh in their home conditions.

NEW ZEALAND will win the match
