Bangladesh won the second match in a thrilling contest and have a very good chance to win this match and seal the series with 2 more matches to go. They can test their bench strength in the last 2 matches if they win the series soon with the T20I World Cup round the corner. New Zealand came up with a better performance with the bat but stumbled in the final overs to lose the game by 4 runs. They need to win this match to keep the series alive and if they lose this match the last matches might end up as dead rubbers.

Bangladesh Preview

Bangladesh openers Mohammed Naim (39 runs) and Liton Das (33 runs) started off the match with their 59-run partnership but they lost 3 quick wickets in the middle to 72/3. Skipper Mamudullah then scored 37 runs off 32 balls to take them to a respectable 141 runs in 20 overs. Shakib Al Hasan and Nurul Hasan played some good shots to up the scoring rate.  

Bangladesh spinners Shakib Al Hasan, Nasum Ahmed, and Mahedi Hasan opened the bowling and had the match in control claiming 5 wickets between them giving runs at less than 6 RPO. Pacers Mustafizur Rahman and Mohammed Saifuddin leaked few runs but held their nerves in the crucial situation to help them win the match.

Top players to bet on:

Mahedi Hasan – Mahedi Hasan has bowling figures of 4-0-17-1 & 4-0-12-2 picking up a wicket in power play overs in both matches. We expect him to continue his good showing with the ball in this match too.

Mahumudullah – Mahmudullah played crucial knocks of 14* & 37* in both the matches to help their team to victory. He can make a big difference with his ability to play till the end for his team with the bat.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing XI:

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

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand Skipper Tom Latham led his team from the front scoring 65* runs off 49 balls but failed to help his team cross the chase as they fell short by 4 runs. Will Young (22 runs) and Cole McConchie (15* runs) played some vital cameos while the remaining batters failed to apply themselves on this tough track.

New Zealand`s spin trio of Ajaz Patel, Cloe McConchie, and Rachin Ravindra matched their Bangladeshi counterparts bowling 12 overs and having almost identical figures. Their fifth bowling option of Ben Sears and Doug Bracewell went for 41 runs in their 4 overs which proved to be the difference in the match of close margins.

Top players to bet on:

Tom Latham – Tom Latham made his maiden T20I fifty and scored almost 50% of his team`s runs in the last game. But lack of support from the other end lead to their downfall and we expect him to lead his team from the front in this match too.

Rachin Ravindra – Ravindra has bowling figures of 1/22 & 3/22 in the two matches so far and we expect him to continue his good showing in this match too. He is yet to make a big score with the bat and might score runs in this match.

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, Matt Henry

Weather Conditions

The skies are expected to clear up for this match and we will have a bright sunshine and steady breeze across the stadium. We can have a full match with no interruptions.

Venue Details

Shere-E-Bangla track was better when compared to the previous matches with competitive totals scored in both innings. But it still has a lot of assistance for the spinners while pacers need to execute their variations precisely. We expect the average scores to be around 130-140 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Both teams opted to bat first in the matches played so far as the pitch tends to slow down as the match progresses. We expect the captains to continue the trend.

New Zealand put on a much improved performance in the last game and almost won the match. Their batters to need to stand up and support their captain to help them post or chase a good total on these tough conditions. Bangladesh batters are chipping in with vitals 30+ cameos to take their team to a competitive total. Their spinners have been their biggest strength and New Zealand is matching them to perfection in spin department. We give Bangladesh team an edge in this contest owing to the home conditions and contributions from different players with the bat. We expect Bangladesh to win this match.

Bangladesh will win the match & the series 3-0
