Team Squads for New Zealand Tour of Bangladesh 2023

Below we have discussed New Zealand Tour of Bangladesh 2023 team squads in detail and help you decide your best possible dream11 fantasy teams to get a big chance to win exciting gifts. 

Bangladesh Squad:

Litton Das (c), Tamim Iqbal, Zakir Hasan, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam, Syed Khaled Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Shahadat Hossain, Musfik Hasan

The Bangladesh squad for the upcoming series against New Zealand consists of a mix of experienced players and promising youngsters. Led by Litton Das, the team boasts some well-known names like Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mominul Haque. The batting lineup shows potential with the likes of Zakir Hasan, Najmul Hossain Shanto, and Mahmudul Hasan Joy.

The strength of Bangladesh’s batting lies in the experience of players like Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim, who have been consistent performers for the team. Tamim Iqbal, in particular, has been a reliable opener for Bangladesh and has the ability to provide a solid foundation at the top. The team also has a good mix of aggressive stroke-makers in the middle order, which can provide the necessary impetus in the middle overs.

However, one weakness in the batting lineup is the lack of consistency from some of the younger players. While players like Zakir Hasan and Najmul Hossain Shanto have shown promise, they need to work on their consistency to make a significant impact at the international level. Additionally, the absence of Shakib-al-hasan after the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 as he will be officially retired from Test Cricket which will be a big blow to the team, as he is one of the best all-rounders in the world.

In terms of bowling, Bangladesh has a decent attack with the likes of Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam, and Taskin Ahmed. Mehidy Hasan Miraz has been impressive with his off-spin and has the ability to pick up wickets at crucial moments. Taijul Islam provides the team with a reliable left-arm spinner, while Taskin Ahmed has the pace to trouble the opposition batsmen.

However, a weakness in the bowling lineup is the lack of a genuine pace attack. Bangladesh has struggled to produce fast bowlers who can consistently clock high speeds. This can be a disadvantage, especially on pitches that are conducive to fast bowling.

New Zealand Squad:

Tim Southee (capt), Tom Blundell (wk), Devon Conway, Matt Henry, Kyle Jamieson, Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, Henry Nicholls, Ajaz Patel, Glenn Phillips, Rachin Ravindra, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Kane Williamson, Will Young

On the other hand, New Zealand squad for the Tour of Bangladesh 2023 consists of fifteen players. Led by Tim Southee, the team comprises of experienced players who have proven their worth in international cricket. The batting line-up is strong with the likes of Williamson, Tom Latham, Devon Conway, and Henry Nicholls. These players have shown their ability to handle spin bowling in the past, which will be crucial in the conditions of Bangladesh.

In the bowling department, Tim Southee will lead the pace attack. His experience and skill in swing bowling will be an asset for New Zealand. Kyle Jamieson, who has been exceptional in recent times, will provide the team with height and bounce. Matt Henry and Neil Wagner will also play important roles with their ability to generate movement off the pitch.

The spin bowling duties will be handled by Ajaz Patel and Ish Sodhi. Patel, who has performed well in subcontinent conditions, will be the main threat for the Bangladeshi batsmen. Sodhi, with his variations, will play a supporting role in putting pressure on the opposition.

New Zealand Tour of Bangladesh 2023 Series Prediction

Bookmakers have predicted that New Zealand will emerge victorious in this series against Bangladesh. There are several factors that contribute to this prediction. Firstly, Bangladesh’s test team is currently going through a transition phase, which may affect their performance on the field. Additionally, the absence of experienced all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan will be a blow to the Bangladeshi side. Shakib’s skills with both bat and ball make him a valuable asset, and his absence will be felt by the team.

On the other hand, New Zealand comes into this series with a lot at stake. The World Test Championship (WTC) points earned from this series will prove crucial for their chances of qualifying for the WTC Final. With the competition for the top two spots in the WTC rankings heating up, New Zealand will be determined to secure a win in Bangladesh.
