New Zealand vs Bangladesh: Hit bookies for six in Cardiff

Time: 1030, 09/06/2017

Venue: SSE SWALEC, Cardiff

New Zealand will be chasing a big win over Bangladesh in Cardiff on Friday and that could make going high on the number of sixes in this match a good option.

The Kiwis need to claim victory and significantly improve their net run rate as they seek to qualify for the semi-finals.

With short straight boundaries on offer at the SSE SWALEC, 17/20 for more than 10 sixes in this match stands out in the New Zealand vs Bangladesh odds.

England reached double figures in this department when beating the Black Caps in Wales on Tuesday, with six different players clearing the boundary.

New Zealand only managed one in response via James Neesham but they should find the Bangladesh bowlers much easier to strike.

In their opening game against Australia, Luke Ronchi and Kane Williamson bagged three each before that match was eventually ruined by rain.

For Bangladesh, Tamim Iqbal has been in outstanding form, landing three maximums in his 128 versus England and the same number when scoring 95 against Australia.

He twice punished Travis Head over extra cover and will be eyeing more of the same when taking on the Kiwis.

Of his first two innings in this tournament, Tamim said: “They have the best attacks in the world and scoring against them in these conditions, which are very different to where I come from, it gives me a lot of confidence.”

The opener also expects more support from his team-mates, adding: “We have very skilful batsmen who haven’t fired yet. They are all proven players. They will do it in the future.”

With the weather forecast for Cardiff promising decent conditions during the afternoon, we’re banking on some big hits from both teams to land our bet.
