Friday 19 March 22.00
TV: dwell on Sky Sports
New Zealand are with out Kane Williamson due to an elbow damage. Tom Latham will skipper in his absence.
The batting unit stays robust, although, and Devon Conway, a star within the T20 crew, will get a possibility to cement his place in 50-overs. He ought to make his debut at No 3 if the Kiwis stick with Henry Nicholls as Martin Guptill’s opening associate.
Ross Taylor can be absent so Mark Chapman is available in. He and Latham might be the glue within the middle-order however a fairer name can be Will younger, within the unique squad, to play. Jimmy Neesham is charged with late hitting whereas Kyle Jamieson is anticipated to proceed his meteoric rise. There’s no Lockie Ferguson however there’s little fallacious with the bowling unit, both.
Probable XI Guptill, Nicholls, Conway, Young, Latham, Neesham, Santner, Jamieson, Southee, Boult, Henry
Bangladesh will not be at full-strength, both. There is not any Shakib-al-Hasan, a major blow contemplating his all-round potential.
With Shakib within the XI within the final three years Bangaldesh win 63.5% of the time. Without him that drops to 53. That’s a whopping distinction contemplating the opposition just isn’t cream of the crop.
History just isn’t on their facet, both. In 2019 they acquired pumped 3-0 and their senior batsmen had nightmares. Tamim Iqbal managed ten runs in three innings whereas Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah averaged 15 and 12 respectively. They merely should do higher to be aggressive.
There’s lots to love about Bangladesh with the ball, nonetheless. Mustafizur Rahman, Mohammad Saifuddin and Taskin Ahmed are an thrilling tempo trio whereas Mehidy Hasan Miraz can additional improve his credentials as an rising all-rounder.
Possible XI Tamim, Das, Shanto, Mushfiqur, Mithun, Mahmudallah, Soumya, Saifuddin, Mehidy, Mustafizur, Taskin
We predict massive runs on the University Oval. The run price in ten ODI performed there’s 5.25 and within the final 4 innings 330 has been busted. In 2019 New Zealand made 330 in duffing up the Bangladeshis. In 4 Ford Trophy matches final 12 months the first-innings scores learn: 243-323-354-407.
If the Kiwis bat first they need to be aiming for no less than 320. So we’re very eager to get with them for runs on the exchange’s innings runs market. You ought to be capable to get 2.1011/10 that they bust 310 or extra. And that might be a top-rated wager. Don’t be afraid of taking massive numbers about one thing huge (370, 380, 390), nonetheless, significantly because the climate is ready honest.
Can Bangladesh make a sport of it?
Early days on the match odds market however Bangladesh are given little likelihood. They are priced at 7.206/1 with New Zealand 1.152/13. We would count on the house crew to go off greater than that.
It’s not a write-off, nonetheless. There’s room in that Bangladesh worth to take a commerce however provided that they bat first. They are able to getting some runs to deliver perhaps two to 3 factors off that beginning worth. If New Zealand bat first we count on them to get very, very quick, very, in a short time.
Guptill will get favorite standing at 23/10 and though on win price he must be extra like 4/1, a flat wicket and a depleted line-uop makes him a greater guess than regular with Sportsbook. Nicholls is 7/2 and COnway the identical.
For Bangladesh, there’s nowt fallacious with a 20/1 nibble on Mehidy, significantly with that flaky document of the highest order in thoughts. Saifuddin can be underrated at 4s for high bowler.
