New Zealand Playing 11 vs Bangladesh– ICC World Cup 2023, Match 11. New Zealand takes on Bangladesh on October 13, Friday in Chennai. The match starts at 2 pm IST. New Zealand will play their next two matches in Chennai against Bangladesh and Afghanistan in the ICC World Cup 2023.

New Zealand has won two out of two games so far. They beat England by nine wickets and the Netherlands by 99 runs. They have won all their five games against Bangladesh in World Cups.

Kane Williamson is likely to make a comeback in the Kiwi playing XI for this match. He was rested from the first two games as he was continuing his recovery. Tim Soutrhee will also make a comeback as his selection is more than certain as per Kiwi coach Gary Stead. Southee recently had surgery on his left thumb and is good to go as per sources.

The return of the two stalwarts would certainly boost the team’s strength in both batting and bowling departments. They will also need to find a way to Ish Sodhi who did not play the first two games. The pitch at Chennai will help the spinners and the management should pick the two specialist spinners in the side.

New Zealand and Bangladesh have played 40 ODIs with the Kiwis winning 30 matches and the Tigers just 10. One match ended in a no-result. The Kiwis are expected to bring out another dominating performance, especially with the senior players expected to be back in the side.

Latham will be back to being the specialist wicketkeeper-batter. He led in the first two games and won both of them as captain. The tricky training Chepauk pitch needs a batter like him who can grind an innings.

Phillips can slot in at seven. He is seen as a potential finisher in this Kiwi lineup. He is a brilliant fielder and can keep as well. He is also the backup keeper in the side. He scored just four against the Netherlands but is a far better batter.
