Team News: New Zealand and Bangladesh

Kane Williamson will be leading from the front for the Kiwis. In his match against Australia, Williamson hit a spectacular ton, while in the game against England, he scored a well made 87. If Corey Anderson too succeeds in finding his form, then things will not be that easy for the Asian side.

Skipper Corey Anderson is quite keen to rope in Colin de Grandhomme in the playing eleven so that the batting strength of the lower middle order will turn more stable. Neil Broom is the weakest link in the New Zealand batting line-up, but still, Kane will give him one more chance to prove his mettle.

On the other hand, Bangladesh will open their innings with Imrul Kayes and Tamim Iqbal. The team will bring in Mosaddek Hossain in the lower middle order. Mashraffe Mortaza considers this game as a do or die encounter, and in all probabilities, the unpredictable Bangla Tigers will use their sharpened claws to tear down the Kiwi feathers.

Weather and surface conditions

In Cardiff, there is a chance of a little shower, but it may drift away by 11.00 AM. The surface in Cardiff has a little grass on it, and it will favor the Pacers in the initial overs. In all probabilities, the Captain who wins the toss will bowl first, so that the team can make use of the initial swing to pick some early wickets.
