New Zealand v Bangladesh ICC Champions Trophy predictions, betting tips & live stream: Black Caps to stay in the hunt

Bangladesh and New Zealand clash (credit:Credit by bettingpro)

Rain and England has made sure that both New Zealand and Bangladesh stayed on one point with one match to play and remain in contention to progress when the two teams meet at Cardiff on Friday, June 9.

New Zealand v Bangladesh Match Preview 


The game will decide who will remain in contention for semi-final spot from Group A, although the catch is that the winner will still not be sure of progression – a point for Australia would be enough to qualify. 

Kane Williamson must have been wondering why it has come to this. They dominated Australia in the tournament opener only for rain to ruin their chances. In their second match in Cardiff, an all-round England side overwhelmed the Kiwis leaving them with a solitary point.

Even a win will not guarantee a semi-final spot but a loss will surely push them out of contention. 

Williamson has been their hero with the bat while Ross Taylor and Martin Guptill have impressed in patches. Lack of bite in their middle order has been their bane. With the ball too, the lack of swing has nullified the strength of Tim Southee and Trent Boult.

If rain ruined the Kiwis’ chances, it has kept Bangladesh alive at this moment. The Tigers were on the brink of losing to Australia only for incessant showers to gift them a point. This, after their opening game loss to England in which their batsmen gave them a fighting total.

Tamim Iqbal has been in cracking form for Bangladesh with the bat while Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan are doing their bit. Bowling remains a concern for them though as Mustafizur Rahman is struggling to adapt to pitches that do not suit his cutters.

New Zealand v Bangladesh Line-ups and Key Players


Neil Broom’s lack of runs is a worry although the only option for Williamson is Tom Latham. The diminutive left-hander could come into the side as an opener pushing Luke Ronchi down the order. James Neesham and Mitchell Santner should also feel the pressure from Colin de Grandhomme and Jeetan Patel.

Bangladesh still have not found the right batting order with Imrul Kayes at number not clicking. Sabbir Rahman could get back to one-drop while Mosaddek Hossain may slot in the middle order.

New Zealand v Bangladesh Form & Stats


Bangladesh have a 9-21 record against New Zealand but come on the back of a five-wicket win over the Kiwis in Dublin. That incidentally was the first time Bangladesh defeated Kiwis away from home – although it was against a second string side.

New Zealand v Bangladesh Predictions


New Zealand have no other option than a win and try to stay in the competition. Both sides are struggling to find the right balance now but the Kiwis have a slight edge.

Tamim and Williamson have been the batsmen of the tournament so far with back-to-back classy innings. Back them to top the batting charts for their respective sides.

The top-order struggles for Bangladesh make the Kiwis a favourite to score more in the first 15 overs.
