World Cup ODI 2023

NZ vs. BAN, Match 11

 

Preview

The Blackcaps are galling once again why they are one of the top contender sides in this World Cup ODI 2023 to lift the silverware this year in India. After beating both England and Netherlands in their last two fixtures of the tournament, NZ sits on the top of the points table with 2 out of two wins with a healthy net run rate of 1.958. Tom Latham-led Bangladesh will now face Bangladesh at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday 13th October 2023.

New Zealand has a spotless record against Bangladesh in World Cup ODIs and will be pretty confident of their chances to win this match as well against Shakib Al Hasan-led BAN. However, we have seen that in the previous encounter between India and Australia on this track at Chepuak spinners got sharp which is conducive for spin bowling, and BAN's spinners might just end up choking NZ's batters here.

Blackcaps are functioning like a well-oiled machine right now in the tournament their top order is hammering everything out of the park. They will be looking to make it 3-0 in the tournament against the Bangla Tigers. Moreover, NZ's confidence level will be on cloud nine after beating Bangladesh recently 2-0 in an ODI series at their home. Shakib Al Hasan-led Bangladesh has won one match out of 2 matches they played so far in the tournament, succumbed to a 137-run loss against England, where BAN could manage just 227 while chasing a mammoth target of 365. That massive loss has pushed Bangladesh to sixth place in the table and reduced their net rate to -0.653.

BAN, however, will relish this wicket and their spin bowlers should find plenty of purchase here throughout and that will always keep them in the match. The like of likes of Shakib Al Hasan, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz could be game changers in this match with their spin-web against NZ. The left-hander all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, with all his guile and experience, will be the key aspect for BAN on this surface with other bowlers. However, NZ will be aiming for the same services from their spinners with the likes of Rachin Ravindra, Mitch Santner, and Ish Sodhi on this turning track.

Both sides have faced each other in 41 matches in ODI. Out of these 41 matches, NZ takes a huge lead of 30-10 over Bangla Tigers, 1 match ended without a result. NZ and BAN have squared off each other each 5-times in the World Cup ODI events. Out of these 5 matches, NZ has white-washed BAN by 5-0 in the marquee competition. The highest total posted by BAN was 288 runs while the highest score posted by NZ was 290 when NZ and BAN clashed with each other in the World Cup. 117 is the lowest total posted by NZ and 116 is the lowest total posted by BAN in the World Cup ODI matches.

 

Match Details

Match: World Cup ODI 2023, NZ vs BAN, Match 11

Date: Friday, October 13, 2023

Time: 02:00 PM IST

Venue: M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai

 

Pitch and Weather Report

The average score batting first at the Chepuak is 231. This is unlikely to be a high-scoring match. In the previous match, five-time World Champions Australia, after batting first, could only manage 199 here against team India. Their batters were throttled against India’s batters of spin bowlers. Both NZ and BAN have skilled spinners in their ranks and will certainly make batting difficult.

The team batting first should look to post a total of around 270-280 on this track. The team winning the toss at Chepauk might just be tempted to chase. However, the searing heat and humidity might force them to bat first and try and put on a big total on the board. Fast bowlers will get some bounce and movement at the start, but once the ball becomes softer, Seamers are likely to become ineffective. Batters will have to grind it out and show proper technique and patience to excel on this wicket. Spinners, though, will dominate the track at M. A. Chidambaram. Spinners will get consistent slow spin off the surface, and batters will find it tough to hit them through the line.

The weather in Chennai will be warm, and humid on the match day. The maximum temperature to be around 34' and the minimum 26'.

Match Prediction

Without any doubt, NZ has dominated BAN in all departments of the game. NZ also won the last nine ODIs in a row against them. So, the Black Caps will certainly start as favourites for this match, particularly given the form they are in right now. However, considering BAN as underdogs would be a big mistake, they have previously defeated the likes of India, England and other big teams in this marquee tournament. On their day, BAN can beat any big team. Furthermore, this track should be right up their alley and can keep them in the match. We reckon NZ to dominate this match against BAN.
