We are not even a week into the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and we have already seen one upset happen with Bangladesh toppling South Africa by a decent margin. Just a few hours ago, Pakistan trumped England in a closely fought encounter and these two unexpected results have set up the tournament beautifully. Much to everyone's surprise, West Indies are currently sitting at the top of the table followed by New Zealand and Australia. The Kiwis will have an opportunity to get to the points table in their next encounter, against Bangladesh which is to be played at Kennington Oval, London. Having beaten South Africa by a fair margin in the opening game, Bangladesh, too, will be confident to topple the Kiwis on Wednesday. With two teams coming on the back of wins in their respective matches to lock horns in the upcoming encounter, a scintillating contest is certainly on the cards.
Without a doubt, Bangladesh were being considered as underdogs coming into the World Cup 19, but considering their performance in the first match, no team would be taking them lightly going forward. In recent months, Bangladesh have outplayed most of the teams and are the fourth best team in terms of Win/Loss ratio.
In their first game of the tournament, against the Proteas, they outplayed their opponents in all departments of the game. With this win, they completed their fifth win in the last five completed One Day Internationals - which speaks volumes about the momentum they currently have.
Batting first on a tricky batting surface, by England's standards, Bangladesh started off in a fine fashion with Soumya Sarkar and Tamim Iqbal negotiating the initial phase with considerable ease. Considering the fact that none of their batsmen scored a daddy hundred and they still managed to post an imposing total articulates about how strong and deep their batting lineup is.
With their top-order boasting of Soumya Sarkar, Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, and Mushfiqur Rahim with the likes of Mohammad Mithun and Mahmudullah Riyad to follow, they have an exceptionally settled batting lineup at their disposal.
Bowling-wise, they may not have the same experience as their batting department, but they certainly have the right talent at their disposal. Mashrafe Mortaza has led the side brilliantly in the past few matches and his on-field changes were a treat to watch against the Proteas as well. Considering the experience or lack thereof of some bowlers, we may seem their bowling crack when put under the pump.
All in all, Bangladesh are a solid team and a lot stronger than they were in the last World Cup. We have seen them defeat even the best in the business in recent times and it won't be surprised if that happens in this World Cup as well - not once, but multiple times.

New Zealand announced their contention for the top-four spots in style with a clinical display in their first match of the tournament, against Sri Lanka, with a terrific ten wickets win over the island nation. Yes, it was a surface where they was a lot of assistance for the fast bowlers, but the way their batsmen batted albeit on a flatter wicket was commendable.
This competition has so far been full of surprises and the surprise package on the Black Caps' win over Sri Lanka was perhaps the man who might not have been in the squad had Tim Southee been hundred percent fit, Matt Henry. He started the carnage on only the second ball of the innings and continued to pick wickets right throughout the innings to earn a well deserved man-of-the-match award. He returned with the impressive figures of 29 for 3 in his 7 overs.
With the likes of Trent Boult and Lokie Ferguson doing exceedingly well in that match, the Kiwi bowling looks to be in pretty safe hands. They also have Ish Sodhi in their 15-member squad who is a good prospect in spinning conditions, but might not get a chance in the upcoming encounter.
Batting-wise, the Kiwis haven't really got a chance in the competition up until now barring their outing against West Indies in one of the two warm-up fixtures. They chased down a relatively easy total of 180 against India with relative ease but failed to accomplish the mammoth task of chasing a humungous total against West Indies. Against Sri Lanka, their bowlers did all the damage and their batsmen were left to chase a severely under par total.
Overall, up until now, there's hardly anything which the Kiwis have done wrong. Their bowlers did a tremendous job in the last match with Martin Guptill and Colin Munro taking them to a 10-wicket win. They have a strong batting lineup to complement their versatile bowling attack and with English conditions suited to their kind of bowling, they can be a huge threat not only in the last match but also in the next match.

Up until now, both the matches here have been won by the team batting first. In both the matches, there was a bit of assistance on offer for the team bowling first in the first half an hour of the match. Bangladesh won their last match batting first here and with the battery of spinners they have might choose to bat first. For New Zealand, chasing would be the preferable decision after winning the toss.

Unlike most of the other surfaces in England, Kennington Oval hasn't been a high-scoring venue prior to the beginning of this tournament. However, we have seen two towering totals being posted in the first two matches here - of 330 by Bangladesh and 311 by England. The average total batting first here, however, is just 245. While the seamers are likely to get a bit of assistance here in the early overs, toss doens't usually have a huge influence on the result here. Considering the kind of surface it's expected to be and relatively short boundaries, the team batting first would need to put at least 280 runs on the board here.
Mushfiqur Rahim was exceptional in the last match and he bats at a relatively higher position os compared to the Kiwi wicket-keeper and is, therefore, our selection for the Wicket-keeper slot.
Batting-wise, it was a pretty straightforward selection in this match. Leaving our any of Kane Williamson, Martin Guptill, and Ross Taylor doesn't make sense and with the kind of experience Tamim Iqbal brings in, he makes into our side ahead of Soumya Sarkar, even though latter did better in Bangladesh's previous encounter. It was a dicey call to leave Colin Munro out, but considering that he is not that well-versed against quality spinners, we decided to keep him out.
All-rounders form an important part of our Dream11 lineup and Shakib Al Hasan is arguably the most important player. Mitchell Santner and Colin de Grandhomme, who both are capable of delivering points in all three facets of the game, are our other two picks here.
On the bowling front, we have Matt Henry, Trent Boult, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz considering the recent form of all three and the available credit limit to pick the side.

The two teams are coming off an exceptionally good performance in their last respective matches and it's expected to be a terrific showdown on Wednesday. Bangladesh have raised their standards of performance by a lot in recent times and it won't be easy for the Kiwis to take on them. The Black Caps, on the other hand, were terrific in all of their first three matches with batting and bowling doing reasonably well. Comparing the two sides on paper, the Kiwis definitely are ahead of the Asian Tigers, but it could very well turn out to be a different result altogether on the field. Having said that, the chances of it happening are bleak and with the form, Kiwi bowlers and batsmen are in couple with the home-like conditions, we think they will register a comfortable win in the upcoming encounter.
