6th October 2019, 3:30 AM IST
Ben Sutcliffe Oval, Lincoln
The Bangladesh U-19 and New Zealand U-19 side face off against one another in the third ODI of their ongoing series on Sunday. The first game was won by the Asian side while the second game was washed out before being rescheduled. Heading into the game, Bangladesh should fancy their chances given the fact they been in good form over the year. Nevertheless, the Kiwis aren’t ones to be taken lightly especially on home turf. All in all, a good game of cricket awaits on Sunday with the scenic Bert Sutcliffe Oval hosting this game.
The pitch should help both the batsmen and the bowlers with a lot of swing on offer for the new ball bowlers. As seen in the previous games, spin could also play a part with 250 being par at the ground.
The weather is all clear for this game with temperatures also varying in the range of 17-19 degrees. The pacers will get help early on with the new ball with some clouds also set to make an appearance during the start of the match
Injuries: No injuries are reported from either side
Probable Playing XI
Thomas Zohrab and Tanzid Hasan have scored 130 and 93 runs respectively in the two games in the series. Their form should serve them well on Sunday which is why both of them are picked in the batting department. Similarly, Shamim Hossain is also in decent form while the likes of Ollie White and Towhid Hridoy also warranty a place in fantasy team. Only one Bangladesh pacer in Shoriful Islam is picked, who has prior experience playing in the BPL for the Khulna Titans. All eyes will be upon Aditya Ashok, who is NZ’s best bet with the ball in hand.
