Bangladesh have started their ICC World Cup 2019 campaign with a thumping win over South Africa. They will look to continue the winning streak when they face New Zealand on June 5 (Wednesday) at the Kennington Oval in London.

Bangladesh eye second victory

The Tigers benefitted from their experienced crickets taking the onus to deliver at the biggest stage. The management will hope they do the same job in the matches to follow. The Mashrafe Mortaza-led side may consider bringing in the experienced Rubel Hossain to bolster the pace attack after Mohammad Saifuddin’s up and down display against South Africa. Otherwise, Bangladesh may stick to the side which won the opening match of their campaign.

Tamim Iqbal got a start in the last game but failed to get going. He has a lot of experience in his back, and Bangladesh will hope him to lead the batting unit from the front. Iqbal needs to take the onus on himself from the next games.

Mushfiqur Rahim made an excellent start to the World Cup top-scoring with 78 runs against Proteas. The wicket-keeper batsman will have to lead from the front and keep scoring runs for the team.

Mosaddek Hossain chipped in with useful contributions with the bat in the lower order. He also bowled some tight overs and is also a good fielder which will add value to the team.

Mehidy Hasan bowled terrifically well in the powerplays and contained the free flow of runs. Hasan will have to continue doing so as New Zealand have some quality players of spin in their ranks.

Mashrafe Mortaza didn’t have a good game against the Proteas; however, led the team brilliantly. The veteran cricketer will have to improve his performance and come hard at the Kiwi side.

Rubel Hossain

Rubel Hossain is likely to replace Mohammad Saifuddin after his topsy-turvy run against South Africa. Rubel is an experienced customer and knows what it takes to bowl at this big stage. The Bangladesh management will want the pacer to be at his best against New Zealand.

Mustafizur Rahman had a good game against South Africa returning with three wickets. The left-arm spinner will have to be at his best if Bangladesh want to keep their winning run going.
