While New Zealand have already sealed the series with one man in hand, Bangladesh are looking to gain the much needed momentum by winning their last official 50-over game prior to the ICC Champions Trophy 2017.

However, Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza believes the outcome of the match won’t make much difference condition-wise, as the condition of England is totally different from Ireland.

So, despite the team management’s wish to work with their team combination in this match, Mashrafe is off the view to go out with a full-strength team to win the match rather than just experiementing.

In that case, there could be one change against New Zealand from Bangladesh’s last match against Ireland. Spinner Sunzamul Islam made his debut in that match, and did well by taking two wickets. Still, rumors are doing the round that he could be replaced by either Mehedi Hasan Miraz or Nasir Hossain.

 

Bangladesh probable XI: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah Riyad, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Mehedi Hasan Miraz/Nasir Hossain, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman.
