Bangladesh v New Zealand betting tips for Champions Trophy 2017 are placed in this article. New Zealand clash with Bangladesh in the ninth game of the 2017 Champions Trophy that will be played on June 9.
Venue: Sofia Gardens, Cardiff
Time: 10.30 am local (3 pm India time)
It is a delicately placed group and one in which three teams are fighting for the second spot on the table. With England having already taken their place in the semi-final, it will be down to Australia, apart from New Zealand and Bangladesh to wrap things up nicely and qualify for the last four.
As things stand, Australia have two points from their two games while both New Zealand and Bangladesh have just one. What this implies is that while the losing team from this New Zealand-Bangladesh encounter will definitely be knocked out, the winners will need to wait for the next match result to know whether they have made the semi-finals.
Because in the next game, Australia take on the in-form England. If Australia win that, they will surge to four points with either New Zealand or Bangladesh having the potential to make it to just three even after that win.

Bangladesh will need to decide whether they want to play with the side that lost to England or the one which escaped thanks to rain against Australia. The latter had a more potent bowling attack which could be the way to go.
Bangladesh’s expected playing XI:
Tamim, Sarkar, Kayes, Sabbir, Mushfiqur, Shakib, Mahmudullah, Mashrafe, Mehedi, Mustafizur, Rubel
New Zealand will need to re-look at their middle-order long and hard. If things are going to go this bad so regularly, they might even look at Tom Latham to play a part. Question is if he replaces Guptill or one of the struggling middle-order batsmen.
New Zealand’s expected playing XI:
Guptill, Ronchi, Taylor, Williamson, Broom, Anderson, Neesham, Santner, Southee, Boult, McClenaghan.
