Pitch Condition:

Sher E Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka

This wicket is expected to be on the slower side. Bowlers(especially change of pace and spinners) will be more effective here.

Batting is way too tough.

Last 3 matches at this ground:

NZ: 60/10, BAN: 62/5 (Pace:5 Spin:8)

BAN: 141/6, NZ: 137/5 (Pace:1 Spin:10)

NZ: 128/5, BAN:76/10 (Pace:5 Spin:10)

NZ: 93/10, BAN: 96/4 (Pace:5 Spin:8)

Bangladesh Team Preview: 

They have performed superbly till now. They have won 3 of the 4 games till now. They are going to test their bench strength in this game.

It was learned that ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan may choose to rest for the fifth game as he is suffering from pain in his finger while Mohammad Saifuddin, who suffered a blow to his finger while going for the ball off his own bowling in the fourth game, may also sit out. The team management is expected to rest pacer Mustafizur Rahman and left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed, who has been part of the playing eleven for the last four games.
