Team New Zealand

The Kiwis play professional cricket thoroughly. The finalists of the ICC CWC 2015, 2019, ICC T20 World Cup 2021 and the WTC 2021 are eyeing for an ICC trophy this time. They could manage to hold on to the WTC 2021 trophy after beating India in the final. Their regular skipper Kane Williamson missed the first game against England due to rehab and recovery but he will be back for the game against the Netherlands. The finest batsman in the Kiwis squad will lift the spirit of the team and add more strength to the batting line-up.

The ICC had conducted some ICC CWC 2023 warm-up matches at different venues to get familiar with the Indian pitches. New Zealand had played two matches, one against Pakistan and the other against South Africa. They won both of them. In the first match, Pakistan batted first and after a nervy start, the skipper Babar Azam and the wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan played excellent hands and some lower-order attack took their score to 345 for 5. In response, Kiwis took the time and then bashed all Pakistani bowlers. Rachin Ravindra shone with his brilliant 97, Williamson and Daryl Mitchell scored half-centuries while Mark Chapman finished the match with his magnificent unbeaten 65 runs knock. 

In the second match, New Zealand batted first and they played well. Devon Conway and Tom Latham made the fifties and some lower-order attack took their total to 321 for 6. In response, South Africa did not start well but they steadied their innings well. Rassie van der Dussen made a fifty. The rain played a spoilsport and in the end, the Kiwis won the match by just 7 runs by the DLS method. Quinton de Cock was unbeaten on 84 along with David Miller on 18 and they were going well but when the rain interrupted, they were 7 runs behind the DLS score.

Team Bangladesh

The team is performing in bits and pieces but some of their players are in good form. Some new faces are included in the squad like Tanzid Hasan, Towhid Hridoy, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, Hasan Mahmud etc. Their star batter Najmul Hossain Shanto has been in tremendous form since last year. Even in the Asia Cup 2023, before injury, he played two matches and made one century and a half-century. He will be the key batter for Bangladesh in this World Cup. 

In the recent warm-up match against England, they couldn’t bat well. Mehidy Hasan Miraz was the only batter who scored a half-century. The opener Tanzid Hasan played a good hand of 45 runs. However, the skipper Shakib Al Hasan did not come to bat. In response to this, Bangladesh bowlers bowled well initially. They took wickets in regular intervals. Mustafizur Rahman picked up 2 wickets while the other bowlers took one wicket each. It will be interesting to see how their pacers will bowl in the seam-friendly conditions.
