New Zealand will face Bangladesh in the 3rd ODI of the series. With one game remaining, New Zealand has wrapped up the series, as many had predicted. The Blackcaps’ run chase seemed impossible at one point in the second ODI, but skipper Tom Latham’s unbeaten century helped them win by 5 wickets with 10 balls to spare. Pacers Trent Boult, Matt Henry, and Kyle Jamieson are doing an excellent job controlling the flow of runs. New Zealand is always a difficult opponent to beat at home, as they have demonstrated once again.
On the other hand, Bangladesh came well prepared and fought hard until the end in the 2nd ODI after a humiliating loss by 8 wickets in the first. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough against a strong New Zealand team. With the bat, they had noteworthy performers in skipper Tamim Iqbal and Mohammad Mithun. With the series over, they’ll have to put in some extra effort to beat New Zealand’s top-ranked team and earn their first win on tour.
Wellington’s weather will be sunny, with temperatures between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius and a high humidity level of 72%. There is no forecast of precipitation in today’s match.
The Basin Reserve is known for producing high-scoring games, and this match should be no exception. The batsmen should enjoy the ball landing on their bats, and the short dimensions of the ground should help them out as well.
On the other hand, the pacers should get some extra bounce, keeping the batters on their toes. After winning the toss, both teams will look to bat first, with a total of 270-280 being a decent total at the venue.

Despite posting a challenging total, Bangladesh was unable to limit New Zealand’s batting. The same can be attributed to a below-average bowling attack. On the other hand, New Zealand appears to be a much more well-balanced team, with excellent batters and bowlers. It will be a massive blow if Bangladesh can upset the odds.
