Tigers’ record against the Kiwis in home is extra-ordinary but in overseas it is tough to believe. Bangladesh have white-washed New Zealand two times in Bangladesh and won a number of 8 matches in ODI. But they lost all of the 16 matches against them in away.
Bangladesh have created lots of chances to seal the victory but unfortunately, they are yet to win a single match against the Kiwis. Hence, cricketers thinks that this is the high time to beat them in overseas.
Bangladesh are all set to face New Zealand in the dead rubber match of tri-nation series 2017 on Wednesday. If they can beat the Kiwis then their rating points will rise to 93 points, which will help them surpass Sri Lanka in the ODI rankings.
It is necessary to remain at top seven positions of the rankings table besides England during September 30 of this running year to play for the ICC World Cup 2019 directly. If Mashrafe and co can seal the victory against the Kiwis today then their participation in the ICC World Cup 2019 will be almost confirmed!
