New Zealand lost an ODI series 3-1 to England while Bangladesh endured another disappointing Asia Cup campaign. Playing at home, the Tigers have an advantage as they know the conditions. The Kiwis with a second-string batting unit will be tested by spin. The series is a good opportunity for the Tigers to topple New Zealand at home.
Najmul Hossain Shanto will lead the Tigers in the third BAN vs NZ ODI. Tamim Iqbal and Litton Das will be rested. Shakib Al Hasan has not participated in the series. All these three senior players will return to the side for the World Cup.
