NZ vs BAN Key Players
James Neesham‘s performances have not been up to the mark leading into the World Cup. With his aggressive batting and ability to bowl anywhere in the innings, particularly in the death, he is an asset. However, without a central contract, he will need to find ways to prove he is an asset, or risk losing his place.
Mustafizur Rahman is probably the most important member in the Bangladesh side at the moment. With his off-cutters and off-pace deliveries he has a lot of variety and will have to carry Bangladesh with a lot of courage if they are to create something in the upcoming weeks.
