In the build of the high-octane ODI World Cup, Bangladesh will host New Zealand in a three-match ODI series starting September 21. All matches will be played at Shere Bangla Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.
Bangladesh have rested their main players for the series as a precautionary measure just before the commencement of the marquee event. Litton Das will be leading the side in the series. Meanwhile, New Zealand announced Lockie Ferguson as the captain. The visitors will also feature a second-string team, with Kane Williamson the notable player missing.
Bangladesh were comprehensively outplayed in the recently concluded Asia Cup. They lost to Sri Lanka and Pakistan and were eliminated from the competition. However, they can draw comfort from the fact that they managed to beat India in their last ODI match in the tournament.
Before the Asia Cup, they lost a closely contested ODI series against Afghanistan in July this year.
New Zealand have blown hot and cold in their last five ODI fixtures. The Blackcaps toured the UK for a four-match ODI series against England earlier this month. They started on a promising note by winning the first game by a margin of eight wickets. However, things quickly went downhill as the Blackcaps suffered three back-to-back.
