Bangladesh U-19 take on New Zealand U-19 in the second ODI of the five-match series. The tourists registered an emphatic victory in the opener, winning the game by a comfortable margin with six wickets to spare. The Kiwis will look to bounce back from that defeat but it is easier said than done against a formidable Bangladesh U-19 side. Meanwhile, the visitors will start this match as the favorites and it won’t be a surprise if they cruise to another victory in this contest.
Bright sunny conditions are predicted with minimal chances of rain and temperature ranging around 10 degree Celsius expected during the game.
Chasing would be the preferred decision on this pitch as the surface gets easier to bat on as the match progresses. Early in the day, there will be considerable help for the pacers and conditions that should play to their strengths.
No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
New Zealand U-19:
In the previous game, the home side put in a dreadful batting display and will need to improve drastically to stand a chance in this game. Ben Pomare is a reliable custodian behind the stumps and can do the job with the willow in hand whilst Adithya Ashok, who had a fantastic Youth ODI series against Australia will be vital in the bowling department.
Rhys Mariu, Ollie White, Conor Ansell, Thomas Zohrab, Jesse Tashkoff, Ben Pomare (WK), Tim Pringle, William Clark, Kristian Clarke, Fergus Lellman, Adithya Ashok
There is no real need to make any changes to a winning side. Tanzid Hasan and Mahmudul Hasan Joy got decent starts but failed to convert it into a big score. Skipper Akbar Ali scored an unbeaten 65 of 61 deliveries to guide his side to victory whereas Shoriful Islam and Mrittunjoy picked up three scalps each to inflict early damage. Yet again, the onus will lie on the duo to play a starring role with the bowl in hand.
Tanzid Hasan, Parvez Hossain, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Towhid Hridoy, Akbar Ali (C & WK), Shahadat Hossain, Shamim Hossain, Mrittunjoy Chowdhury, Shoriful Islam, Rakibul Hasan, Tanzim Hasan
Towhid Hridoy and Mahmudul Hasan Joy have averaged 53.14 and 52.72 respectively with the bat coming into the series in 2019. The pair did not make a huge impression on their first outing but could have a big impact in the upcoming encounter and thus have to be picked in your Dream11 Team. Shoriful Islam is expected to be among the wickets after a bright opening display hence justifying his inclusion in the fantasy side.
1: Mahmudul Hasan Joy
2: Towhid Hridoy
3: Shoriful Islam
