New Zealand will be aiming to continue their perfect two-from-two start to the tournament, whilst a dangerous Bangladesh will be looking to bounce back from their defeat against England.


This match is as much about the venue it is being played, as it is about the two teams competing. The MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai favours the spinners and on that front Bangladesh outmuscle New Zealand.

On paper, New Zealand are the better team, but in Shakib Al-Hasan, Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Mahedi Hasan, Bangladesh have a spin trio that will pose a serious challenge to the Kiwis.

A Bangladesh win would be the best result for the neutral, as it will mean both teams finish the fixture with a record of two wins and one loss and further ramp up the potential for semi-final qualification drama.

New Zealand, however, may well be rolling their eyes and wondering what the fuss is all about. So far, they've been perfect in the World Cup and beat Bangladesh, in Bangladesh, 2-0 less than a month ago. For them, they'll be looking at it as just another step en route to the semi-finals.

New Zealand v Bangladesh key player to watch

Shakib Al-Hasan (Bangladesh)

Bangladesh’s best spinner, best batter and captain, Shakib, will take on even more of a leading role than usual. Against England, he was defensive when bowling, looking to starve a run-hungry batting line-up of boundaries, but against New Zealand, he’ll be on the attack.

A Bangladesh win will shake up the tournament and expect them to be on the front foot to achieve it.
