Bangladesh Set Sights on Chennai Spin Advantage Against In-Form New Zealand

As Shakib Al Hasan’s Bangladesh prepares to take on New Zealand in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup clash at Chepauk, they are banking on their spin arsenal to counter the Kiwi challenge.

New Zealand has exhibited exceptional form in this World Cup, securing two flawless wins, evidenced by their remarkable net run rate of 1.958. However, they are well aware of the distinct challenge Chennai’s pitch poses, expecting it to favor spin.

Facing the spin-friendly conditions in Chennai, New Zealand understands the importance of countering Bangladesh’s formidable spin attack. Led by Mitchell Santner, who demonstrated his prowess with a five-wicket haul in their previous match, New Zealand also boasts options like Ish Sodhi and Rachin Ravindra in their spin department.

Captain Kane Williamson is likely to return for the crucial game, while pacer Tim Southee might sit out, ensuring a balanced squad for the Kiwis.

On the other hand, Bangladesh, reeling from a significant loss to England, is banking on their experience in subcontinental conditions. They aim to utilize their skilled spin bowlers to exploit the conditions at Chepauk.

Moreover, Bangladesh is eager for a stronger showing from their top-order batsmen, acknowledging the importance of a robust batting performance against the formidable New Zealand bowling attack.
