Bangladesh on Thursday named their squad for the first two matches. Najmul Hossain Shanto, along with four others who were in New Zealand, was dropped while star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan made a return. There are four players on standby.

Ahead of the match, Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal has warned his team against complacency, against a side that is relatively inexperienced.

The series is a part of the ongoing ICC ODI World Cup Super League.
