NZ vs BAN Match Prediction & Analysis

The first ODI between Bangladesh and New Zealand was completely one-sided and the result was never in doubt. The visitors made absolutely no impact on the game and the gulf between the two teams was massive. There are just a couple of days in between matches and to expect Bangladesh to be able to do something markedly different may be a bit too much to hope for.

New Zealand is without its two senior-most batsmen and may be tempted to make a few more changes to test its bench strength. Let us try and see what is likely to happen in the next match and try to find some value bets that you can take advantage of.

New Zealand vs Bangladesh 2nd ODI 2021 is going to be played at the Hagley Oval, Christchurch on the 23rd of March 2021.

Team Previews

New Zealand

New Zealand’s premier bowler, Trent Boult was back at his best as he picked up four wickets blew away the Bangladeshis. Boult picked up the first two and the last two wickets to fall in the inning and was getting a decent amount of swing with the new ball.

Incidentally, these were his first ODI wickets since the World Cup 2019 semi-final!

Matt Henry, Kyle Jamieson, Jimmy Neesham, and Mitchell Santner all finished with terrific figures. They were never under any sort of pressure and were allowed to bowl their lines throughout.

Tim Southee could get a chance in the next match in place of one of the fast-bowlers or perhaps even in place of Jimmy Neesham.

Martin Guptill played well and is looking in ominous touch. That is a good sign for New Zealand moving forward in this series as Guptill is a total confidence player. Henry Nicholls, Devon Conway, and Will Young all played well but were never really tested.

A better test might to be see how many of them can get a big score whenever New Zealand gets a chance to bat first in this series. Mark Chapman is the one batsman that could get a chance in the playing eleven but maybe not for this next match.

All of New Zealand’s players seem to be in good form and a clear cut above the Bangladeshis.

There was a lot of talk about Bangladesh wanting to do something that none of the teams prior to theirs had been able to do, which was to win an ODI in New Zealand. The loss in the first match was the 14th defeat in succession that Bangladesh has suffered in New Zealand and it is frankly just becoming embarrassing.

The players in the squad have plenty of experience and have been around for decades. Maybe it is time to admit that they are just not good enough.

No one played with any intent or positivity in the first match. It can be argued that the loss of early wickets pegged them back but even when batsmen spent a considerable amount of time at the crease, they were never able to get any runs.

New Zealand is a country where the average runs scored per match is very high. New Zealand’s batting is going to struggle to get to par totals even if everything goes right for them. The batsmen struggle against the swinging ball, the middle and lower order lacks power, and the quality of players coming through is pretty questionable.

Bangladesh is good in home conditions and terrible abroad. That is nothing new and we are afraid it looks like the old story is going to repeat itself.

Bangladesh’s bowling was poor also and never looked threatening. Taskin Ahmed was the only bowler that managed to get some pace and bounce from the surface. The Bangladeshi spinners will definitely have to think out of the box to succeed here.

NZ vs BAN Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. Any movement off the pitch is going to be available for the first few overs and that may be something that teams want to take advantage of. Out of 15 ODI matches played here, 8 have been won by the team batting first and 7 by the chasing side so the toss should not be much of a factor.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather forecast for the match is excellent and we should be able to enjoy a complete uninterrupted game. The pitch at the Hagley Oval is a bit bouncy and generally has good pace in it. The highest total socred here is 341/7 by New Zealand against Bangladesh.

We expect another high-scoring match here, particularly if the hosts bats first.

300 would be the minimum that teams batting first aim for.

NZ vs BAN Betting Tips

We have no hesitation in backing New Zealand to win this match. We know that the value is not there from a betting perspective but a small profit is better than losing all your money. Bangladesh has not been able to win an ODI match in New Zealand in 14 attempts and we don’t see any reason why that streak is going to end now.

Bet on New Zealand to win.
