Probable XIs, Match Prediction, Pitch Report, Weather Forecast, and Live Streaming Details


New Zealand and Bangladesh are set to square off in the opening game of the three-match ODI series on Sunday, December 17. The University Oval in Dunedin will host the clash.

Bangladesh made an impressive start to their tour by beating New Zealand XI by 26 runs at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval in Lincoln. Rishad Hossain was their star performer, scoring 87 runs and taking three wickets.

Tanzid Hasan Tamim, Litton Das, and Soumya Sarkar also racked up half-centuries. Their challenge is to carry the momentum into the ODI series, but they will have their work cut out for them.

Najmul Hossain Shanto has been in excellent form and will be an important player for the Tigers. Mushfiqur Rahim and Mehidy Hasan Miraz will also need to bring forth all their experience.

On the other hand, New Zealand do not have the likes of Devon Conway, Mitchell Santner, and a few other key players. The series is a chance for the likes of Jacob Duffy, Josh Clarkson and Adithya Ashok to showcase their skills.
