Bangladesh who have emerged as an astute unit in recent times with excellent performances during recent international tournaments made their presence felt with a 21-run win against giants South Africa in their previous clash of the ICC World Cup 2019. 

The Kiwis have been in fine form as well, recording victory against India in a warm-up clash before following it up with a ten-wicket win over Sri Lanka in their first match of the ICC World Cup 2019. 

There have been concerns raised over the match-fitness of New Zealand cricketers Henry Nicholls and Tim Southee who have been battling hamstring and calf injuries resulting in them missing out on the first game against Sri Lanka.
