Here we will be talking about the possible scenarios of the match that could help the fantasy players such as Dream11 users to make their Dream team better and help them win big.

Weather and Pitch Report

Weather: There are showers expected early in the morning which could slightly delay the start of the match but the weather is expected to be clear for the rest of the day. So, a full match is possible. Weather is expected to be pleasant with maximum temperature expected to be around 17°C.

Pitch Report: A new strip of the pitch will be used for this match which is likely to have some green covering. So, a good contest between bat and ball can be expected and a score of anywhere around 300 can be considered as a par score.

New Zeland played their last match here and fell short of 86 runs while chasing a target of 311 against England.

Team News

New Zealand:

  • Their batting hasn’t been good so far so they might look to include Tom Latham in their line-up for this match.
  • Also, with Bangladesh having four left-handed batsmen in their top-five, they might look to include Jeetan Patel in place of Mitchell Santner.


  • If the pitch is likely to assist pacers, they might include Taskin Ahmad in place of Mehedi Hasan.
  • In that case, they are likely to omit Imrul Kayes and bring in Mosaddek Hossain Saikat to have a sixth bowling option and Sabbir Rahman is likely to move to bat at number three.


Probable Playing XI: (In the Batting order)

New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Luke Ronchi/Tom Latham (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Neil Broom, Corey Anderson, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner/Jeetan Patel, Adam Milne, Tim Southee, Trent Boult.
