Pitch report and weather conditions
Shere Bangla National Stadium is a venue that has been pretty hard for batting over the years. Spinners find significant assistance here while seamers can also make an impact. The average first innings score at the venue stands at 223.
The first game was washed out due to relentless rain and the weather in Dhaka isn’t looking good for Saturday. There could be thunderstorms, with a 69% chance of precipitation.
Bangladesh vs New Zealand prediction
New Zealand dominate the head to head record against Bangladesh by 28-10 but they haven’t managed to win in Bangladesh in the previous eight games. Bangladesh have good resources at home to beat NZ.
Our Prediction: Bangladesh to win this match at 13/20 (1.65).
Tamim Iqbal has over 8300 runs in his ODI career with 14 centuries. You can bet on him to be Bangladesh’s top batter at 13/5 (3.60). Will Young has 482 runs in the last 11 games and is coming off a fifty in the first game. Bet on Young to be the top batter for New Zealand at 11/4 (3.75).

Trent Boult has been in outstanding form, recently picking eight wickets in two games versus England. You can bet on him to be New Zealand’s top bowler at 2/1 (3.00). Nasum Ahmed was exceptional in the first game with 2 for 21. Back him to be Bangladesh’s best bowler at 15/4 (4.75).
Our Prediction: Trent Boult to be New Zealand’s top wicket-taker at 2/1 (3.00).
