New Zealand’s fate has taken a positive turn ever since the team has been altered. After being outplayed by India in the ODIs, New Zealand has started their three-match series against Bangladesh with a comprehensive victory. Bangladesh is now in need to regroup quickly and come out with a better batting performance if they want to win against the new version of the New Zealand team.
Shakib was a key player when South Africa was upset by Bangladesh by 21 runs in their opening match on Sunday. All-rounder Bangladesh player, Shakib Al Hasan has his eyes set on making his 200th one-day international match memorable as his side chase a second successive World Cup win against New Zealand on Wednesday.
The fifth player Shakib made the wicket behind Sri Lanka’s Sanath Jayasuriya, South African Jacques Kallis and Pakistan – pair Shahid Afridi and Abdul Razzaz to reach the landmark of 5,000 runs and 250 wickets in ODIs.
The next challenge for the 32-year-old star player has now come at the Oval against a New Zealand side who crushed Sri Lanka by 10 wickets in their opening match.
Shakib has good experience of upsetting the Black Caps after inspiring their five-wicket over New Zealand in the 2017 Champions Trophy with the most recent of his seven ODI hundreds.
