Bangladesh vs New Zealand on September 23


Bangladesh will be up against New Zealand in the 2nd ODI match of the New Zealand Tour of Bangladesh at The Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur on September 23. This is going to be the second match of the three-match ODI series in Bangladesh and is being seen as good preparation for both these teams ahead of the World Cup. These teams squared off against each other at the same venue in the last match, where Bangladesh won the toss and elected to field. Even before the match could start, the rain arrived and shortened the match to 42 overs a side. New Zealand started their batting but were slow and sloppy right from the start. After losing two wickets early, they did manage to have a good partnership for the third wicket. Will Young and Henry Nicholls played good knocks, which took them to a decent total before rain arrived again. This time around, it was a little too heavy, and the game could not be resumed thereon, leading the match to no result. New Zealand would be looking forward to putting up a better show in the coming game with the bat, while Bangladesh would be looking forward to repeating the magic with the ball in the matches to come as well. 

Best economical pick – Nasum Ahmed was brilliant with the ball as well, not just scalping wickets but stopping the run flow as well. He scalped two wickets at an economy of just 2.62.

Top captains & vice captains Will Young the opening batter is expected to be the best batter for New Zealand in the upcoming ODI match. The 30-year-old played a rather watchful knock of 58 off 91 deliveries in a rain-curtailed first ODI. His knock was studded with four boundaries and one maximum. Tamim Iqbal has played 241 games in this format, making him perhaps the most experienced player on both teams. In these games, he has 8313 runs total.

Smart pick – Mustafizur Rahman could be the key bowler for Bangladesh in the upcoming match. The 28-year-old pacer has picked up three wickets for 27 runs in his seven-over spell in the rain-marred match.

Cautious Pick – Dane Cleaver has not looked in good form in the matches he has played recently and should not find a place in your team.

My XI – Will Young (Captain), Tamim Iqbal (Vice-Captain), Nasum Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Litton Das, Henry Nicholls, Trent Boult, Mahmudullah, Finn Allen, Lockie Ferguson, Ish Sodhi
