The 11th fixture of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 will have 2015 and 2019 finalists New Zealand going head-to-head with Bangladesh. After opening their World Cup 2023 tournament with a bang, the Kiwis recorded a second consecutive win in the tournament as they took down the Netherlands in their second fixture. Bangladesh, on the other hand, won their season opener but slumped to reigning champions in the second match.
While the Black Caps will look forward to continuing their winning streak, Shakib Al Hasan and his men will enter the field to make a comeback and record a win after going down in their second match.
If we have a look at the respective fixtures, they have been a part of in the ongoing season of the tournament, the Bengal Tigers won the toss in both their matches. Kiwis, under the captaincy of their stand-in captain Tom Latham, won one toss and lost the other. Hence, we think the finalists for two consecutive seasons, New Zealand are likely to win the toss in both sides' third match in the 2023 World Cup.
New Zealand and Bangladesh have faced each other in 41 matches in the 50-over format till now. In those 41 matches, New Zealand won 30 matches while Bangladesh came on top on 10 occasions. This clearly says that New Zealand are a stronger team than their rivals. In addition to this, if we analyse the performances of both the teams in the 13th edition of the ODI World Cup, Black Caps have won both matches, while Bangladesh have won one of the two games. Considering this, we think that Kane Williamson and Co. will win the forthcoming game to extend their win tally to 3-0.
Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score
The MA Chidambaram Stadium or Chepauk Stadium as it is widely known, has been slated to host a total of five matches in the ongoing season of the ODI World Cup. Looking at the past matches played at the venue, it has hosted a total of 35 limited-over matches with an average innings score of 233. With this, we think that the first-inning score of the NZ vs BAN fixture is likely to be around 250-270 with the powerplay score being somewhere between 45-50.
