Bangladesh scripted a historic win against mighty Aussies in the last series and Bengal tigers are now hunting to conquer the Blackcaps. Bangladesh was without Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim in the last series but their return will make them stronger. Bangladesh was white-washed by New Zealand this year and this might be their turn to heal the wounds and showcase their supremacy at home. 

Spinners played a crucial role in the last series and are again expected to be the deciding factor in this series. Bangladesh has a good track record at home in white-ball cricket and the series against inexperienced New Zealand will be another opportunity to prepare for the mega event.

New Zealand

New Zealand is up against Bangladesh for preparations before going into the ultimate showdown in WT20 later this year. It will be a fast 5 match T20 series that will be played in a span of 10 days. New Zealand has announced a relatively inexperienced squad because of the IPL commitments of most of the players. But it will be a good taste of experience for youngsters like Finn Allen, Ben Sears in sub-continent conditions.

New Zealand will be led by experienced Tom Latham who himself is not a part of the T20I setup. New Zealand is considered the top cricketing nation now and a good pool of talent is the biggest treasure of any team. Blackcaps have been in instrumental form in the last 3-4 years and despite 2nd string squad, their bout with Bangladeshi tigers will be a treat to watch.

Weather Report

Thunderstorms are expected to come around 3:00 before the start of the match. In the last series, rain played a major role and always stopped the tempo of the match regularly. The good news for fans is that the duration of rain is expected to be short and we can expect good cricket after that. 

  • Rain: 45%
  • Humidity 65%
  • Wind speed: 6 km/h.
  • Temperature- 31 Degree Celsius

Pitch Report

Bangladesh prepared rank-turners in the last series, and again pitch is likely to be on the slower side. 130 runs were a winnable total last time and according to Blackcaps captain, Tom Latham 110 runs will be par score on this pitch. Spinners will be key and cutters will be seamers’ best option under these conditions. Captains will look to bat first after winning the toss as chasing is very difficult on these surfaces.

BAN vs NZ– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

Bangladesh is expected to win the match against New Zealand 

KhelTalk experts feel Bangladesh will win against New Zealand. Bangladesh defeated Aussies in the last series and will be favorites to win this series as well. Bangladesh has an exceptional record at home and their spinners dominate every opposition.

Whereas New Zealand has named an inexperienced squad whose most of the players will be playing on spinning tracks for the first time. Bangladesh has big advantages of having many good spinners and New Zealand has only two front-line spinners who can decide the fate of the match. We expect Bangladesh to win against New Zealand.

Top Batsman from New Zealand – Tom Latham (4.50 odds)

Tom Latham is an established Kiwi batsman in ODIs but is nowhere near in T20Is right now. He is given the responsibility to lead the side in absence of Kane Williamson. Latham is exceptional against spinners and his gameplay against them will be tailor-made on pitches like Dhaka. Tom Latham is one of few batsmen from SENA who has good records against spinners in Sub continents. Tom Latham is the most experienced player in this team and will be Kiwi’s biggest hope in the series. He is our pick for best batsman from New Zealand.

Top Batsman from Bangladesh  – Shakib Al Hasan (4.50 odds)

Shakib Al Hasan was brilliant against Australia in the last series even on slow tracks. Shakib is great against spinners and has much range of shots in his armory. He keeps the scoreboard ticking and always puts spinners under pressure. Shakib is an experienced campaigner and knows when to up and slow the tempo of the game. On slow pitches, everyone wishes to have a batsman like Shakib in their team and he can give you good returns.

Top Bowler from New Zealand– Ajaz Patel (4.50 odds)

Ajaz Patel is likely to make his debut in this match and straight on can be the trump card for Blackcaps. Patel is a regular member of the Test side and has a good record in Asia. After continuous grind in domestic cricket, he is set to make his debut in the shorter format. He has picked 63 wickets in his career and his slow-left-arm bowling will be crucial for New Zealand’s chances in the series. He is our pick for best bowler from New Zealand.

Top Bowler from Bangladesh – Mustafizur Rahman (3.00 odds)

Mustafizur Rahman was in supreme form in the last series against Aussies. He snapped 7 wickets at an outrageous average of 8 and an economy of 3.53. His cutters are very tough to pick on these pitches and top of that his accuracy makes batsman life hell. He varies pace brilliantly and can change the game on his head. New Zealand has a very inexperienced batting lineup and Fizz will fancy his chances to outdone them single-handedly. He can give good returns and is our pick for best bowler from Bangladesh.
