BAN vs NZ Dream 11 Prediction: Best Dream11 team for today’s Bangladesh vs New Zealand Match 9 | TSR helps you with Dream 11 for CWC 2019.
The ninth match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between Bangladesh and New Zealand at The Oval today. With both teams starting their World Cup campaign on a winning note, one of them will face a defeat tonight.
Bangladesh’s inspiring victory against South Africa have raised their stakes to unparalleled heights in the tournament. Usually a tough side in ICC tournaments, the Kiwis would be a tad more careful against Bangladesh now.
BAN vs NZ Dream 11 Prediction
Wicket-keepers for BAN vs NZ Dream 11
I have picked both wicket-keepers in my squad. After watching Bangladesh’s Mushfiqur Rahim score 78 (80) with the help of eight fours against South Africa, there weren’t many reasons for me to not pick him. If Bangladesh are to stand a chance against New Zealand, their senior cricketer will have to deliver yet again.
I also expect New Zealand’s Tom Latham to come good against Bangladesh. The primary reason behind the same is Latham’s ability of playing spinners well. Slated to bat at No. 5, the left-handed batsman will face a barrage of spinners in Shakib Al Hasan, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mosaddek Hossain and Mahmudullah (if required). Generally good against them, he might yield returns for you.
Batsmen for BAN vs NZ Dream 11
Among the only specialist Bangladesh batsman in my squad is their opening batsman Soumya Sarkar. Having scored 73, 54, 66 and 42 in his last four ODIs (at a strike rate of 114.07), Sarkar has been in stellar form at the top of the order.
“Soumya [Sarkar] set the tone [for us],” Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza said about Sarkar during the post-match presentation ceremony after beating South Africa. Given the form that he is in, Sarkar is most likely to set the tone for Bangladesh yet again tomorrow.

New Zealand’s trio of Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor are my other batsmen for tomorrow’s clash. The three Kiwis might cost you 30 credits but it is an investment which should reward you accordingly. If Guptill gets going, he has it in him to take the Bangladeshi attack to tatters.
Just in case Guptill doesn’t get going, expect Williamson and Taylor to both consolidate and eventually attack during the business end of their innings.
All-rounders for BAN vs NZ Dream 11
The only all-rounder in my Dream11 Fantasy team is Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan. Declared ‘Man of the Match’ against South Africa, Shakib justified his No. 1 rank in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Rankings for all-rounders. There was a reason behind picking him as one of the Top Three Dream11 Picks during Bangladesh’s first match.
Since the 32-year old cricketer has it in him to contribute significantly across departments, there aren’t many doubts regarding not picking him in your team.
Bowlers for BAN vs NZ Dream 11
My only specialist spinner for this match is Bangladesh’s Mehidy Hasan Miraz. Expected to bowl his full quota of 20 overs, Miraz should make inroads into New Zealand’s batting lineup. If he opens the bowling, his contest with New Zealand opening batsman Colin Munro will be enticing to watch.
With bowling figures of 10-0-67-3, left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman was the pick of the bowlers for Bangladesh. Other than restricting South Africa’s middle-order batsmen, what Rahman did best was pick wickets at regular intervals for his team. Since he usually bowls in the slog overs, expect Rahman to pick wickets tonight.
From not playing an ODI in the last three and a half months to winning the ‘Man of the Match’ award in New Zealand’s tournament opener against Sri Lanka, fast bowler Matt Hardy (7-0-29-3) took his opportunity with both hands. Taking the new ball for New Zealand, he and Trent Boult are likely to dent the opposition in the first powerplay.
