New Zealand vs Bangladesh Tips

Bangladesh put up a good fight in the 2nd ODI, but it wasn’t enough to take the series to a decider. The value for this game is in the run-scoring markets with Will Young backed to continue his good form.

  • New Zealand lead the series 2-0.
  • New Zealand’s Will Young has scored 105 & 89 runs in his last 2 ODI innings.
  • Bangladesh have lost their last 2 ODIs.
  • Bangladesh’s Soumya Sarkar scored 169 runs in his last innings.

Head to Head

New Zealand lead the series 2-0 with one to play. They won the second ODI by seven wickets.

New Zealand Form

New Zealand have secured the series win after winning the first two games of the series. The second one was very close but the hosts got over the line.

Bowling first, the hosts struggled to take regular wickets but eventually bowled Bangladesh out for 291 runs. That set them a stiff total to secure the series.

However, the batsmen delivered, securing the seven-wicket win with more than three overs to spare. Will Young scored 89 runs to continue his fine form while Henry Nicholls top-scored with 95.

The Black Caps may look to give the rest of the squad a run in the final match.

Bangladesh Form

Bangladesh were not given much chance of winning in the 2nd ODI but they put up a huge fight. They will be disappointed that they didn’t manage to win, though.

Batting first, The Tigers scored 291 runs, mainly thanks to a sublime 169 off 151 balls by Soumya Sarkar. The score could have been quite a bit bigger had someone stayed with the opening batsman, but regular wickets kept the hosts in the game.

The bowlers struggled on what was a very flat pitch. They only managed to take three wickets as the Black Caps cruised to a seven-wicket win.

Bangladesh Team News

There is plenty of pride to still play for despite the series being lost. I suspect there may be a few changes to the Bangladesh side.


I am backing Will Young to score 50+ and top score for New Zealand. For Bangladesh it is difficult to look past Soumya Sarkar after his magnificent innings in the last match.
