The in-form New Zealand (NZ) side lock horns with Bangladesh (BAN) in Match No. 11 of the ongoing sixteenth edition of the World Cup. The encounter is scheduled for Friday, October 13th, 2023 at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Stand-in skipper Tom Latham has led the Kiwis to two victories in as many games while Shakib Al Hasan and his men have won one and lost one so far.

The Black Caps even without their regular skipper Kane Williamson have made a solid start to their campaign as they thrashed the reigning champions England by a nine-wicket margin in their opening fixture in Ahmedabad. Latham’s side continued their winning momentum as they beat the Netherlands in their second outing in Hyderabad. With two wins and a healthy net run rate, the Kiwis are now at the top of the table.

On the other hand, the Bangla Tigers began their WC campaign with a victory over Afghanistan at the picturesque Dharamsala. Bangladesh then suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of the defending champions England by 137 runs in their second fixture at the same venue.
