Bangladesh vs New Zealand Highlights
McCullum: Very pleased to make a contribution, we’ve got a very good score. The partnership with James Franklin set us up. On some days it comes off and on some it doesn’t not … They have very good bowlers, played very well against us in Dhaka, our boys have worked hard to play left-arm spin in anticipation for this, and it was nice to put such a total on the board.
The opening match of Group-D will be played between Bangladesh and New Zealand. Both sides are capable of beating any side on their day specially Bangladesh as they showed in the past beating New Zealand 4-0 in the Odi series. The 3rd team of this group is Pakistan who is one of the favorites to win this tournament.
Black Caps captain R Taylor is very confident after a good performance in the match against India which they won by just 1 run. New Zealand are very experienced side and have some very explosive and good players like B McCullum and Guptill. They also have couple of good All-Rounders Jacob Oram and James Franklin. They are facing serious issue reguarding D Vettori fitness.
Bangladesh are young side. They showed some good performances consistantly for last 2, 3 years. The best they showed was in the Asia cup where they beaten Sri Lanka and India and reach the final there. The Asian conditions mostly suite them. They have very good players in the side specially their All-Rounders and spinners. They are very much relying on Shaqib Al Hassan and Tamim Iqbal.
