Bangladesh is becoming a graveyard for the batters with scoring dipping at a fast rate and even the home team players are not happy with the conditions on offer. The visiting teams are being bowled out for paltry scores in the last 2 matches and Bangladesh have been hugely unchallenged in these conditions. New Zealand will look to survive the conditions and put on a competitive total in this match while Hosts will look to dominate the opposition to get their second win of the series.

Bangladesh Preview

Bangladesh crawled their way past the total of 62 runs in 15 overs with Shakib Al Hasan top scoring with 25 runs. Mushfiqur Rahim (14 runs) and Mahmudullah (16 runs) shared an unbeaten 25-run partnership to steer their team to victory. Earlier both their openers were dismissed for ideal score of 1 to leave them reeling at 7/2.

Their bowlers made the New Zealand batters dance to their tunes bowling them all-out for 62 runs. Mustafizur Rahman was the top wicket-taker with 3 wickets while Nasum Ahmed, Shakib, Saifuddin picked up 2 wickets each. All the bowlers used had economy rate less than 5 RPO. 

Top players to bet on:

Shakib Al Hasan – Shakib had an all-round performance scoring 25 runs and also claimed bowling figures of 4-0-10-2. He will to eager to continue his good showing in this match too.

Mohammed Saifuddin – Saiffudin took the wickets of Tom Latham and Henry Nicholls when they both looked like rebuilding their innings. He is a handy batsmen too and will look to contribute in both departments in this match.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing XI:

Mohammad Naim, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah (c), Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mahedi Hasan, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mustafizur Rahman, Nasum Ahmed

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand batters stumbled upon the sub-continental tracks and had no clue to the bag of tricks of Bangladesh bowlers. Tom Latham and Henry Nicholls top scored with 18 runs and were the only two players to score in double digits. They were bowled out for just 62 runs in 16.4 overs.

New Zealand bowlers gave a tough fight despite a small target with their spin trio of Ajaz Patel, Cloe McConchie, and Rachin Ravindra bowling 12 overs straight to give just 47 runs claiming a wicket each. They might drop Jacob Duffy in this match to add Finn Allen to strengthen their batting.

Top players to bet on:

Tom Latham – Tom Latham is their most experienced player and he will need to step up with the bat to help his team post a competitive total on tough conditions. He looked good for his 18 runs in the previous match.

Ajaz Patel – Ajaz Patel opened the bowling and was almost unplayable with bowling figures of 4-0-7-1 and was the most economical bowler from the either sides. He might enjoy bowling on these surfaces which are conductive to spin.

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Rachin Ravindra, Tom Blundell, Will Young, Colin de Grandhomme, Tom Latham (c & wk), Henry Nicholls, Cole McConchie, Doug Bracewell, Ajaz Patel, Blair Tickner, Jacob Duffy/Finn Allen

Weather Conditions

Dhaka has dark and cloudy weather with scattered thunderstorms on the match day.  We expect rain would settle down in the evening and allow for the match with small interruptions only.

Venue Details

Shere-E-Bangla track was a nightmare for the batsmen in the last game with ball stopping and coming with uneven bounce. We expect the pitch to be slightly better in this game but still in the favor of the bowlers with the slowness. We expect the average scores to be around 120-130 runs in this match.  

Toss: To Bat

Batting first is the best option as the pitch tends to slow down and batsmen will find it hard to chase down the total. Both captains will look to bat first and utilize the best conditions early on in their favor.

New Zealand has one of the very inexperienced squad for the series and no player in their squad has a T20I fifty so far is a proof of it. On the contrary Bangladesh has a very deep batting line-up extending till No. 8 who has experience of playing a lot of matches here. New Zealand has brought spinners to match the Bangladeshi spinners but their pacers lack the skill and quality to perform well on these dust bowls. Bangladesh pacers use their variations to great effect on these pitches and we expect them to win this match and lead series 2-0.

Bangladesh will win the match & lead the series 2-0
