October 13, 2023 – New Zealand’s opener, Devon Conway, spoke highly of Bangladesh’s capabilities after facing the Asian side in the lead-up to the Cricket World Cup. The two teams are set to meet in Chennai later on Friday.

Last month, New Zealand played against Bangladesh as part of their preparations for the 50-overs showpiece in India. They emerged victorious, clinching a 2-0 win in a One-Day International series and commanding considerable margins of victory in both matches.

Carrying their winning momentum into the World Cup, the Black Caps displayed dominance by thrashing defending champions England by nine wickets in their opening match. They continued their winning streak with a 99-run victory over the Netherlands, currently placing them in second position in the table.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better start with two wins and four points. The guys are excited to get out there and put up a good show against Bangladesh,” Conway expressed his optimism.

Conway acknowledges Bangladesh’s strength and appreciates the fact that New Zealand has recently played several One-Day International games against them, which has provided valuable insights on their strategies.

“They are crafty with the ball. They’ve got some good spinners and seamers up front as well,” Conway admitted, emphasizing the variety and depth present in the Bangladesh bowling attack.

In addition to his own performance, Conway highlighted the exceptional partnership he shared with teammate Rachin Ravindra during their triumph over England. The duo’s unbeaten 273-run partnership showcased Ravindra’s immense talent and potential.

“That partnership we shared in Ahmedabad was special. It’s great to see him show the world what he’s got,” Conway said, expressing his happiness for Ravindra’s recognition.

Conway further commended Ravindra’s maturity and composure despite being a 23-year-old, as he possesses the mindset of a seasoned professional. Ravindra’s ability to focus on the present moment and take each day as it comes has played a significant role in his success.

“He’s done really well in the first two games at the World Cup, where there’s a lot of pressure. It’s special for him to get the acknowledgment he deserves,” Conway added, acknowledging the resilience and talent displayed by his teammate.

As the match between New Zealand and Bangladesh approaches, the Kiwis are well aware of the challenges that lie ahead. However, with their comprehensive preparations and solid form, they are determined to continue their winning streak and put up an impressive performance against Bangladesh.
