Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Predictions: New Zealand vs Bangladesh 2021 - 2nd ODI
The 2nd ODI of the three-match series between New Zealand and Bangladesh will be played at the Hagley Oval, Christchurch in New Zealand.
New Zealand won their first match against Bangladesh comprehensively by 8 wickets from just 21.2 overs.
Henry Nicholls was the top scorer for New Zealand in the match with 49* runs off 53 deliveries at a strike rate of 92. He hit 6 fours and batted sensibly. Martin Guptill also smashed 38 from 19 balls.
Trent Boult was the best bowler for New Zealand in the match and picked up 4 wickets while conceding 27 runs from his 8.5 overs.
Bangladesh have to really sort out their batting order with poor Soumya Sarkar made to shuttle between No 3 and No 7. If the team considers that Sarkar is a long term option at No 3 and can also be a reliable sixth bowling option, they must give him a long enough run at that spot.
Mahmudullah was the top scorer for Bangladesh in the match with 27 runs off 53 deliveries at a strike rate of 50. He hit one four and one six. Mushfiqur Rahim also scored 23.
Taskin Ahmed was the best bowler for Bangladesh in the match and picked up one wicket while conceding 23 runs from his 4 overs.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
New Zealand - Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Devon Conway, Will Young, Tom Latham (c & wk), James Neesham, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Kyle Jamieson, Matt Henry, Trent Boult
Bangladesh - Tamim Iqbal (c), Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hasan, Mahedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Hasan Mahmud/Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman
