Bangladesh have been in good form in the ODIs of late and have won five of their last six matches.

On the contrary, New Zealand suffered a 1-4 defeat against India and looked completely out of sorts. They have a lot of issues to take care of. The batting is not firing and there have barely been good partnerships. The team would like to address this issue leading into the World Cup.

They will have high hopes from Ross Taylor, who has turned back the clock and is looking in perfect touch. With Matchbook bonus code 2019 you can see that odds may vary because Captain Kane Williamson has not gone big but has consistently got starts and appears to be timing the ball well. Opener Colin Munro has been dropped and Martin Guptill will open the innings along with Henry Nicholls. Tom Latham is another vital cog of the team and bats in the middle order.

With the ball, Mitchell Santner has resumed his work after returning back from an injury. Lockie Ferguson has looked impressive with the speed gun touching 150 kmph on a consistent basis. Trent Bolt as always has been swinging the ball and picked up 12 wickets against India.

For Bangladesh, Tamim Iqbal will be the top batsman. He is coming off a wonderful century in the Bangladesh Premier League final and would be high on confidence. However, they will miss the services of Shakib Al Hasan and Taskin Ahmed both of whom are currently nursing injuries. The bowling would be led by Mashrafe Mortaza, Mehidy Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman.

Let's have a look at the predicted playing XI of both teams.


New Zealand- Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), Colin de Grandhomme, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult

Bangladesh- Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Sabbir Rahman, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Mehidy Hasan, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mustafizur Rahman
