Pakistan will square off against Bangladesh in the sixth match of the ongoing New Zealand Tri-Series on Thursday, 13th of October. The Men in Green have already qualified for the final against hosts New Zealand, courtesy of the Blackcaps thumping Bangladesh in the fifth match of the series. Babar Azam’s side will hope to regain their form in a dead-rubber against fellow Asian outfit in the upcoming fixture.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh head into their final match of the series, winless in each of their last three outings. Their latest defeat against the hands of the Kiwis further illustrates their inept batting line-up, which failed to support a valiant effort from their skipper Shakib Al Hasan. The upcoming clash will provide an opportunity to try a few things, as there is nothing at stake for either participant.
Venue: Hagley Oval, Christchurch

Going with the latest trend, the surface is a high-scoring one with some assistance from the seam bowlers. The shorter boundaries have been a delightful proposition for the batters who have made their merry on the pitch. The team winning the toss would likely opt to bowl first at the venue.
Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Babar Azam (c), Shan Masood, Haider Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, Asif Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, Shahnawaz Dahani
Yasir Ali, Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Afif Hossain, M Hossain, Shakib Al Hasan(c), Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Liton Das, Nurul Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Mohammad Saifuddin, Shoriful Islam
The Pakistani batting ace had a rare failure with the bat in his previous outing against the Kiwis. Mohammad Rizwan is Pakistan’s trump card heading into the T20 World Cup, and the team will be hoping that he can prolong his rollicking batting form at the top of the order against Bangladesh before the titular clash against New Zealand.
Probable best bowler
With the rest of the young pacers struggling for the Men in Green in recent times, Haris Rauf has elevated his game to the next level. The tearaway pacer is lethal with the new ball while being deadly accurate with his yorkers at the fag end of the innings. His form, coupled with the return of pace sensation Shaheen Afridi will be vital for the Asian giants.
