Bangladesh will take on New Zealand in the second ODI of the three-match series at the Sher-e-Bangla Cricket Stadium in Dhaka on Saturday (September 23). The first ODI between the two sides was abandoned due to rain.
Although the first ODI between Bangladesh and New Zealand was called off due to persistent showers, it did witness some play, with Will Young and Henry Nicholls scoring 58 and 44 runs for the Blackcaps. Meanwhile, Mustafizur Rahman and Nasum Ahmed shined with the ball for Bangladesh, taking three and two wickets, respectively.
With the opening game ending in no result, both sides would now be determined to pull off a win on Saturday.

Sher-e-Bangla Cricket Stadium pitch report:
The Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium provides a good playing surface, which tends to benefit spin bowlers in limited-overs cricket. Historical data indicates that teams opting to bat initially have typically performed better at this specific location. This is primarily because the pitch becomes progressively more difficult for batting as the match goes on. As a result, the captain who wins the toss might consider the tactical advantage of opting to bat first.
