9th Match of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 will be played between Bangladesh and New Zealand on 9th June at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff. A couple of morning shower is forecasted on the day, but there will be rain threats over the match. Mach will be played on the fresh turf with grass on it. Pitch is expected to be slow as seen in previous matches.


This will be the third and the last match in the league group for both the teams. It is "do or die" match for both the teams; one of them will qualify if Australia loses the match against England or the match ends in a tie/no result. If Australia wins the match against England then Bangladesh and New Zealand will be out. However, if this match ends in a tie/no result then the net run rate will come into play if Australia loses their match against England. Possibilities are alive for all three to qualify for the semi-final.


Both the teams are with one win and a no result and they desperately needed the win. Bangladesh is however lucky to survive as now, thank to rain as they had almost lost their last game against Australia but the match ended in a tie/no result. While New Zealand is a bit unlucky, in their first match against Australia they New Zealand were in better position when the match was washed out due to rain.

In last six matches, New Zealand had won five of them and Bangladesh ended with one and the recent one at Dublin. Both the teams are likely to go with the same playing XI in this match.

And when the Sri Lankan skipper was asked about how they would take the green wicket, he said “There is a little bit of grass, but don’t really know as of now, how the wicket will play. If the sun comes out, it might be a different case. We’ve got to play on whatever we get. It’s not going to be an excuse. We’ve got to put up the runs on board, whether we bat first or second”

Pitch will be friendlier for spinners so Adam Zampa is likely to makes in playing XI this time; Glenn Maxwell and Chris Lynn will be also affective.

Bangladesh had lost their last match in the opening game of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 against England. While pitch providing help to spinners will be good news for Bangladesh; and will include an extra spinner most likely Mehedi Hasan in the playing XI.

At Champions Trophy Pakistan had defeated India twice while India managed to do once. At ICC ODI events (ICC Cricket World Cup and ICC Champions Trophy) India had won 7 matches while Pakistan had won 9 matches.

India had won ICC Champions Trophy in 2013 and is defending champions; and has also shared the trophy with Sri Lanka in 2002. While Pakistan is yet to win the trophy; they had not even in finals. This match doesn’t need any extra reason to win but, the win for India will also silence the controversies going on between the India coach Anil Kumble and skipper Virat Kohli. Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh will be first one to be in playing XI. Hardik Pandya will be the all-rounder with which Virat will likes to go; which will also give extra pace option in English condition. Ravichandra Ashwin will be lone spinner. Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami are likely to lead the attack with Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar alongside.

In Pakistan camp, worries have been escalated as Haris Sohail, Junaid Khan and Fakhar Zaman are injured and only twelve players are up for the playing XI. Mohammed Amir will be leading their attack and will be one on whom India will be keeping eyes on.
