New Zealand vs Bangladesh is trending for a couple of reasons, both related to ongoing cricket matches:

New Zealand won the 1st ODI match by 44 runs (D/L method) earlier today (Sunday, December 17, 2023). Will Young scored a century (104 runs) and Tom Latham contributed 92 runs for the Black Caps, while their bowlers, including debutant Will O’Rourke, restricted Bangladesh to 203/7 in the rain-affected match. This was New Zealand’s 17th consecutive ODI win over Bangladesh at home, further extending their dominance.

  • The 2nd Test match is currently underway in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The match has been affected by rain and bad light, with only glimpses of action so far. However, Glenn Phillips’ defiant half-century (53 runs) helped New Zealand reach 248/8 on Day 3, putting them in a decent position. The outcome of this Test could have a significant impact on the series, making the match a closely followed one.

These factors, along with the general interest in cricket, particularly in countries like India, Bangladesh, and New Zealand, have contributed to the trending nature of the New Zealand vs Bangladesh cricket matches.

Here are some additional details that might be of interest:

  • This is the first time Bangladesh is touring New Zealand for an ODI series since 2017.
  • New Zealand is currently ranked 4th in the ICC ODI rankings, while Bangladesh is ranked 7th.
  • The current ODI series is a three-match affair, followed by a two-Test series.
