1. Shakib Al-Hasan vs Ross Taylor
Shakib Al-Hasan is a crafty spinner in Bangladesh’s lineup and given the form that he is in, it will be interesting to see how does he takes the African batting lineup head on. There are strong chances that Shakib will be bowling at the top of the order. Even if he doesn’t, it will be interesting to see one of the best players of spin, Ross Taylor, trying to score runs against Shakib.
2. Tamim Iqbal vs Trent Boult
The best bowler of New Zealand’s team, Trent Boult, will try every trick in his hat to send Bangladesh’s one of the finest, Tamim Iqbal, back in the hut at the earliest.

3. Martin Guptill vs Mustafizur Rahman
If New Zealand have Trent Boult in their arsenal, Bangladesh has Mustafizur Rahman.

The left-hand bowling vs right-hand batting battle between the two will be an interesting sight for the fans.
