New Zealand vs Bangladesh Predictions

New Zealand were much too good for Bangladesh in the series opener, needing just 21.2 overs to win the game by eight wickets.

Bangladesh's struggles with the bat mean we should be focusing on Trent Boult to shine with the ball again and Martin Guptill can continue his form with the bat.

  • New Zealand have a 14-0 record against Bangladesh in ODIs at home.
  • New Zealand's Martin Guptill averages 42.47 in ODI cricket.
  • New Zealand’s Martin Guptill has top scored in 3 of his last 6 ODIs at Hagley Oval
  • New Zealand’s Martin Guptill has scored 45+ runs in 4 of his last 6 ODIs at Hagley Oval
  • New Zealand's Trent Boult took 4-27 in the 1st ODI.

Head to Head

New Zealand have won five of their last six ODI fixtures against Bangladesh. They won by eight wickets in the 1st ODI, needing just 21.2 overs to chase down 132 after dismissing Bangladesh for 131.

In ODIs at home, New Zealand have a 14-0 record against Bangladesh.

New Zealand Form

New Zealand made it four wins in their last five ODI internationals when winning a one-sided series opener against Bangladesh.

Trent Boult led the way with the ball as Bangladesh were dismissed for 131 in 41.5 overs. Martin Guptill (38 from 19 balls) and Henry Nicholls (49 not out) got the Black Caps off to the perfect start and Devon Conway chipped in with 27 on his debut.

New Zealand had last played ODI cricket in March 2020 when losing to Australia before the series was cancelled due to coronavirus.

Since returning to international action, New Zealand won two test series 2-0 against West Indies and Pakistan. They also defeated West Indies 2-0 in T20s and Pakistan 2-1. More recently, they got the better of Australia 3-2 in a T20 series.

New Zealand Injuries & Team News

Ross Taylor missed the 1st ODI and is a doubt with a hamstring injury still troubling him.

Henry Nicholls replaced him at the top of the order and impressed. He is likely to retain the spot with Devon Conway batting at number three.

Tom Latham remains captain with Kane Williamson absent.

Bangladesh Form

Bangladesh were given a schooling in the opening match of the series with Trent Boult getting four wickets in a poor effort batting first.

Bangladesh could only manage 131 all out in 41.2 overs in Dunedin and were handed a quickfire eight-wicket defeat.

Mahmudullah (27) and Mushfiqur Rahim (23) were the only batsmen to pass 20 and the bowling was equally abysmal.

Bangladesh had won their previous six ODI matches with a 3-0 win over the West Indies in January 2021 following a 3-0 whitewash of Zimbabwe.

Bangladesh Injuries & Team News

Bangladesh may resist the urge to make changes and put the 1st ODI defeat down to a bad day at the office.
