Bangladesh Legends and New Zealand Legends will be up against in Road Safety World Series on Saturday. Both the teams have played a game each in the season so far and have succumbed to defeats.
Before the two teams lock horns, here is a look at the match prediction, toss prediction and predicted powerplay scores of this fixture.
1. Toss Prediction
Bangladesh Legends and New Zealand Legends both won their respective tosses. However, New Zealand are playing for the first time in Road Safety World Series this year and hence they have a 100 per cent toss winning rate. So based on that stat, predicting New Zealand Legends to win the toss.
2. Win Possibility
Although both teams have not been able to taste a win in their first match, on paper it seems New Zealand Legends are the better team. They have batters who have a high reputation in this format along with bowlers like Shane Bond who still managed to bowl at express pace, years after hanging up his cricketing boots. Bangladesh Legends too have a great spin-heavy bowling attack that can do well at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur but it remains to be seen if their batters can be up to the challenge against the Kiwi bowlers.
3. Team of the Day
The Team of the Day is New Zealand Legends. They should be able to pull themselves up after the 9-wicket defeat against South Africa Legends and clinch 2 points from this match.
4. Powerplay Score and Average first innings total
Both teams struggled to get going in the powerplay in their first match. While Bangladesh Legends managed 19 runs in the first 6 overs. New Zealand Legends scored 34 runs. So predicting Bangladesh's score to be less than 30 when the fielding restrictions are on while the BlackCaps Legends should be able to cross that mark. The average first innings total in RSWS 2022 at Green Park has been 142.
