New Zealand vs Bangladesh, 3rd ODI Match Preview:
New Zealand's batting was led by their captain Tom Latham in the 2nd ODI, who won the game with his century. He got good support from Devon Conway and James Neesham after a poor start to the innings. With Ross Taylor coming back into the squad, most probably in place of Will Young, the middle order looks solid.
The bowlers have been terrific with their line and lengths. With the series already won, Trent Boult might be given rest and Tim Southee might come in to replace him.
The Bangladesh batting has been sub-par in these two games. They have batted well but haven't made enough runs to help their bowlers. Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim will be the important batsmen for Bangladesh who need to lead the young team with their experience.
The bowlers troubled the Kiwis with the new ball and gave themselves a good chance to level the series in 2nd ODI. The spinners have been tidy but the pacers have given away too many runs. However, the management might go in with the same bowling lineup in the 3rd game.
The series is already done and dusted from New Zealand's point of view and they will be looking to clean sweep Bangladesh in the next match. Going by the form, the hosts are looking favorites to win but Bangladesh has a history of causing upsets.
