New Zealand vs Bangladesh Prediction – 1st T20I

We now enter the last stop on Bangladesh's tour of New Zealand where both teams will meet for 3 T20 fixtures and the first T20 is scheduled to take place on Wednesday at Bay Oval. We expect an absolute thriller as the visitors have always come out as a competitive squad in the T20 format.

New Zealand is coming to play the shortest format after winning the ODI series and they will be eyeing to continue the momentum in the T20 series as well.

The visitors gave a tough fight in the ODI format and ended up winning the last fixture but unfortunately, they already lost the series as they lost the first two fixtures. The top bookmakers in India have amazing odds with them.

New Zealand has a tight pace attack with home advantage and they are expected to dominate Bangladesh’s batting unit.

The betting tip is...

First Bangladesh wicket to fall in second over

New Zealand Team News

The Kiwis witnessed a very low-scoring session in the last ODI fixture of the three-match series. However, when it comes to the T20 format, the team is known for its antics and the quality of players. The team will be under the leadership of Tim Southee as Kane Williamson has withdrawn himself from the series due to medical issues.

Finn Allen and Rachin Ravindra will be expected to start the game for the team with Glenn Phillips in the middle order who can do major damage to the bowling attack under pressure.

In the bowling attack, Kyle Jamieson has also withdrawn himself from the T20 series because of the injury risk and hence the squad will be dependent on Tim Southee, Matt Henry, and Mitchell Santner to give a good start in the game.

Ish Sodhi has displayed a solid spin performance and hence he will be responsible for controlling the run rate of the opposition with his variations.

Bangladesh Team News

Bangladesh would have gained the required confidence for the T20 series after displaying a dominating performance in the last ODI fixture. Their bowlers turned out to be the match winners and will be expected to continue the performance in the T20 format as well.

Shakib Al Hasan is making a comeback to the squad for the T20 series and that will bring in the strength to the bowling squad. Taskin Ahmed & Shoriful Islam will be responsible for the pace attack.

In the batting unit, Litton Das, Rony Talukdar, and Najmul Hossain Shanto will be in the spotlight. The trio will be responsible for giving the team a solid start at the beginning of the fixture. Towhid Hridoy & Shamim Hossain will be placed in the middle order as the duo carries the talent to score quick boundaries and maintain a higher strike rate.
