Conversely, New Zealand, under the leadership of Lockie Ferguson, will see him debuting as the national team’s captain. The opening duo of Finn Allen and Will Young is poised to establish a strong foundation for New Zealand’s batting innings.

Sher-e-Bangla Cricket Stadium pitch report:

The Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium features a versatile pitch, favouring spin bowlers in white-ball cricket. Historical statistics reveal that teams electing to bat first have generally fared better, mainly because the pitch becomes more challenging for batting as the match progresses. Consequently, the captain winning the toss may contemplate the strategic advantage of choosing to bat first.
