A fresh tour is about to begin as Bangladesh visits New Zealand. The tour will consist of 3 ODIs followed by 3 Tests. The first ODI will be hosted by McLean Park, Napier on Wednesday. Keep reading to find out New Zealand vs Bangladesh 1st ODI Match Prediction.
The Kiwis continue their long stint at home. They recently hosted Sri Lanka and India. While they got over Sri Lanka comfortably, India gave them a tough time, especially in the ODI series. The Men in Blue defeated them by 4-1 in ODIs. However, after winning the T20I series, the confidence will be back for the Men in Black. But it’s the ODIs that matter the most at the moment as the countdown for the World Cup has already begun.
For Bangladesh, it’s a great chance to see where they stand in terms of their preparations for the mega event to be hosted by England and Wales. They haven’t won a single ODI in New Zealand so far. The players could well be a bit tired as the Bangladesh Premier League recently got over. However, they would want to test themselves in conditions which are pretty similar to England.
