After the two-Test match series ended in a draw, Bangladesh and New Zealand will aim to win the three One-Day International (ODI) series.
Even though New Zealand will start as favourites, last time it was Bangladesh who the series 4-0.
New Zealand has a strong squad with the exception of 28-year-old Anton Devcich, who is yet to play an international match.
Meanwhile, the hosts are counting a lot of pacer Mashrafe Mortaza for the first two ODIs. After suffering an ankle injury, Mortaza hasn’t played for over a year now.
Tamim Iqbal will be a crucial player for Bangladesh as he has the ability to score quick runs at the top. He also has four ODI centuries to his name, two of which have come at home.
For New Zealand, Tim Southee will be aiming to return on high notes after recovering from an ankle injury which forced him to miss Test series.
Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk & c), Mahmudullah, Nasir Hossain, Naeem Islam, Sohag Gazi, Mashrafe Mortaza, Abdur Razzak, Rubel Hossain.
