Bangladesh is expected to crack in the 50th Independence Day. That the cricket team in New Zealand will match with a great performance. Many fans coming back home will be expecting. That when he wakes up on Friday. So Bangladesh will be going toe to toe with New Zealand in Wellington.
New Zealand’s middle-order led them to win the series in the second ODI in Christchurch. This game has got a dead-rubber status. But in the age of One Day Super League, every match matters.
Bangladesh expected to get a ten from New Zealand at any cost
And Bangladesh will be hoping to score ten points from New Zealand at any cost. However, the home side will boosted by the return of Ross Taylor. Who passed the fitness test after missing the first two matches.
In Christchurch, New Zealand reduced to 53 for 3 before Tom Latham and Devon Conway chased their flags. The third-wicket pair added 113 before Latham made his third unbeaten attempt in a successful chase of his fifth ODI century.
Latham later also acknowledged Jimmy Neesham and Daryl Mitchell for their help during the chase. As he added 76 for the fifth wicket with Neesham and the final 33 with new batsman Mitchell. Latham was also lucky. Was dropped at 58. Neesham also dropped at three.
Bangladesh attacked these missed occasions
Bangladesh will attack these missed occasions. Which will increase the performance of batting better than before in the game. Tamim Iqbal and Mohammad Mithun scored half-centuries at various points in the innings to help them reach 271 runs. Iqbal was playing an innings of 78 runs in his 108 balls. Iqbal runs out through Neesham’s nifty footwork. Mithun then hit six fours and two sixes in his unbeaten 73.
Bangladesh bowler wins big score
The Bangladesh bowlers, however, could not convert their first big score into victory. They were probably for the latter part of New Zealand’s chase which led Latham and Conway to be more conservative.
Bangladesh has to put up another big score on a difficult pitch against a spectacular bowling attack. But Iqbal and the rest of the batsmen have shown. That he has the ability to work in New Zealand.
