The 6th match of the ICC World Cup 2019 will be played between Bangladesh and New Zealand at The Oval, London.
The match starts at 13:30 Local (12:30 GMT).
Earlier this year, Bangladesh played New Zealand in an away One Day series and got thrashed 3-0. The teams are now set to lock horns in the 2019 World Cup at the Kennington Oval in London. It’s the same venue, where Mashrafe Mortaza’s bunch of boys managed to roll over South Africa by 21 runs. The Kiwis also got off to a winning start as they defeated Sri Lanka at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff by 10 wickets.
Rolling back the clock, the Tigers turned over New Zealand in the 2017 CT when the two sides last crossed swords in an ICC event. Even in the 2015 World Cup, Bangladesh gave their opponent a run for their money. In both the matches, Mahmudullah Riyad scored a century. As far as the ongoing WC is concerned, after getting off to a winning start, both teams will be keen to carry on with the good momentum.
ICC World Cup 2019 Bangladesh vs New Zealand Pitch Report & Weather Report:
39 out of the 67 completed ODIs at the venue were won by the team, batting second. However, both games in this World Cup went against the chasing teams. The track is good for batting as 300 runs have been scored by three out of the four teams. Bangladesh will definitely wish to bat first after how they performed at the very ground versus the mighty Proteas.
There is a prediction of rain from the morning at 9 am itself and the forecast won’t change throughout the day. There will be a 90 per cent cloud cover during match time. The humidity won’t be on the higher side with the numbers in the 40s and 50s. The temperature will be around 17 and 19 degrees Celsius. A washout is definitely on the cards.
