Date: 25th March
Stadium: Basin Reserve, New Zealand
Trends & Recent Form
This is the 3rd and final one-day international between the two teams. New Zeland currently leads 2-0. This is followed by a 3 match T20 series.
After this New Zealand does not play again until a test series against England in June.
Bangladesh plays again in a 2 match series against Sri Lanka at the end of April.
New Zealand form
- New Zeland is currently ranked 3rd in the world in the one-day format of the game. They are behind India and England but ahead of arch-rivals Australia.
- New Zealand has batted first in but previous one-day matches and have chased the score down in both matches.
- In the first match, they limited Bangladesh to 131 and then chased the runs down in just 21 overs. Trent Boult was the player of the match with 4/28, in what was a very impressive bowling display.
- In the second match, New Zeland had to chase 276 to win and did so with 10 balls remaining. They lost 5 wickets in the chase. Tom Latham was the player of the match with 110 not out from 108 balls.
- In that match, New Zeland was struggling at 53/3 and Bangladesh just needed a couple of wickets and the game would have been in their hands. They put on 103 for the 4th wicket and over 70 for the 5th wicket.
Bangladesh ODI form
- Bangladesh is rated as the 7th best team in the world in one-day rankings.
- They will consider themselves unlucky in the last match not to build on a good start with the ball. This will help them draw a little confidence for the next match.
- Hitting 275 in the 2nd match was a good score for this team. Both Tamim Iqbal and Mohammad Mithun hit half-centuries, both scoring in the 70s.
- To beat New Zealand, Bangladesh needs to take some more wickets. Four wickets in 48 overs are not enough at the level New Zealand are at.

Match Prediction & Tips
New Zealand should easily make these 3 wins in a row, Bangladesh will not pose them a threat. Unfortunately, the odds of 1/10* on a New Zealand win has no interest for us at all. It may be worth trading the 6/1* on Bangladesh on the betting exchanges if they bat first (and you are an experienced trader).
Match Prediction: New Zealand to win.
- New Zealand bats first
- NZ 300-330/6
- BAN 220-250 all out
- Bangladesh bats first
- BAN 250-270/9
- NZ reach the target in 45-47 overs for 5 wickets
Here are some picks with more value on offer than the match outright markets.
- Pick 1: Boult over 1.5 wickets 4/7*
Boult is a world-class bowler and will pick off the Bangladesh batsman in his 10 overs. He has taken 5 wickets so far this tour (4 & 1) and this looks like a good play for us for this match.
