onwards. Willow TV will beam the match live in the US.

New Zealand has already wrapped up the trophy but would like to beat Bangladesh to keep their perfect record intact in Ireland. Both teams will be playing their heart out before they play for the Champion’s Trophy.

With the conclusion of IPL, New Zealand will have their players back, and the effects are there to see. With the return of Jeetan Patel, New Zealand will have one more spin option.

Bangladesh will surely like to defeat New Zealand especially after their humiliating 4-0 defeat in December last year.

The team will lock horns again in the final group match in the Champions Trophy, and a win against the Kiwis will give a big boost to their confidence.

Although Tamim Iqbal is in great form, and so is Soumya Sarkar, the Bangladesh captain will be worried by the performance of Sabbir Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan who are yet to show their true potential.

Bangladesh will have to take care of their habit of getting choked in the slog over.

The teams

New Zealand has included Matt Henry, Adam Miline, and Corey Anderson in the previous match against Ireland and most probably will continue with the winning formula.

Bangladesh did not include Taskin Ahmed and Shaiful Islam who are in Bangladesh's Champions Trophy squad to be played shorty.

Pitch and conditions

The weatherman has predicted a sunny day with no possibility of rain in Dublin. The team bowling first has a slight advantage and therefore winning the toss is important.

Since this is a day game batting first is a slight disadvantage as the sun comes in the middle during the afternoon. The batsmen will have advantage batting later in the day as the pitch is dry and the bowl comes on to the bat quicker.

In another international game today England will be playing South Africa in the first ODI at Leads.
