The first ODI of the upcoming series between Bangladesh (BAN) and New Zealand (NZ) is all set to begin on Thursday, September 21. Both sides will be facing each other in three ODIs in preparation for the upcoming ODI World Cup, and both teams will be hopeful of good performances in the series. 

Bangladesh will be coming into the series on the back of lacklustre performances in the recently concluded Asia Cup 2023. The side made it to the Super Four stage of the tournament but was eliminated from the competition. On the other hand, New Zealand will be coming into the series on the back of a series loss against England.

BAN vs NZ Pitch Report:

The pitch at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur is quite balanced. The spinners could get some help on such a surface, so the batters will look to stay patient and slowly build their innings. Opting to bowl first and chasing the target down after winning the toss could prove to be an optimal decision. 

BAN vs NZ Head-to-Head Record:

Matches - 38, Bangladesh - 10, New Zealand - 28, 

BAN vs NZ Probable Playing XI

Bangladesh (BAN):

Tamim Iqbal, Litton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mahmudullah, Towhid Hridoy, Mahedi Hasan, Tanzim Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Nasum Ahmed, Rishad Hossain, Nurul Hassan

Probable Best Performers:

Probable Best Batter:

Will Young (New Zealand):

New Zealand’s opener, Will Young, could be the best batter for the side in the upcoming clash against Bangladesh. Young has been in sensational form as of late, and his performance could be crucial for the Black Caps. In his last ten games, Young has scored 424 runs and is one of the best batters for New Zealand currently. 

Probable Best Bowler:

Rachin Ravindra (New Zealand):

New Zealand’s Rachin Ravindra could be the best bowler for New Zealand in the upcoming series against Bangladesh. Taking seven wickets in his last four games, Ravindra’s spell could be very important for New Zealand and could be a real threat to Bangladesh.
