New Zealand and Bangladesh are clashing in their last group match of Champions Trophy 2017 in Cardiff. New Zealand surprisingly is at the bottom of the points table in Group B while Bangladesh is at number three. Both teams will fight each other and would like to win the match to keep their hopes of semis alive.

The Black Caps began well with openers Guptill and Ronchi giving them a breezy start. However .The experienced duo of Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor then stitched a formidable partnership to help the Kiwis gain momentum in the middle overs. Bangladesh seamer Mossedek Hussain then dented the Kiwis by scalping three quick wickets. Neil Broom scored a quick fire cameo to restore the innings but it wasn't good enough for the Kiwis to post a challenging total. Bangladesh have done well to restrict New Zealand to 265. Bangladesh would fancy their chances to chase down this total with a decent batting lineup.Meanwhile, the NZ seam attack would look to make early inroads into the Bangladesh top order to make the match interesting.
