Bangladesh (BAN) and New Zealand (NZ) will meet each other in match 11 of ICC ODI World Cup 2023 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on October 13.

New Zealand will enter into the contest on the back of two convincing wins and sitting at the top of the points table. Devon Conway has been the go-to batter for New Zealand as he has so far aggregated 184 runs in two games while Rachin Ravindra has scored 174 runs in two games.

Will Young scored a brilliant 70 against Netherlands in the second game while Mitchell Santner picked up his maiden fifer in World Cups, becoming the first New Zealand spinner to do so. The Kiwis will will be happy about the return of Kane Williamson to the squad as they look to continue their momentum against Bangladesh.

Bangladesh, on the hand, had a topsy-turvy tournament so far. They first defeated Afghanistan in the first game with the help of brilliant display from Najmul Santo and Shakib Al Hasan while Mehidy Hasan Miraz showed his all-round ability by picking a three wicket-haul and scoring a fifty.

However, their second game was contrasting as they were hammered by England courtesy of a Dawid Malan masterclass. England managed to score 364 in 50 overs courtesy of Malan and Joe Root’s efforts and while Litton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim managed to get fifties, their knocks went in vain as Bangladesh lost by margin of 137 runs.
