nz vs ban Match Prediction & Analysis

New Zealand registered yet another win in the second T20I match to further deepen the wounds of the visitors. They will look end their home season with a win in the final T20I match before their players head out to the IPL 2021. Bangladesh team were dejected with the DL target confusion and their coach Russell Domingo was unhappy to restart the game with drizzle. They will be waiting to return to the home soil after a disastrous tour and they will be little rejuvenated with the series coming to an end with this match. The best possible gift they can take home is a victory in New Zealand soil which has deserted them for more than a decade now.

Teams Preview

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand were off to a good start with 55 runs in the power play but back-to-back wickets put them on the back-foot. Glenn Philips (58 runs) first rebuild the innings from 55/3 and then finished the innings on a strong note with Daryl Mitchell (34 runs) as they had 174 runs on board in 17.4 overs during the rain break.

Pacers Tim Southee, Hamish Bennett, and Adam Milne picked up 2 wickets each while Glenn Philips chipped in with a wicket in the middle overs. Todd Astle and Lockie Ferguson might come in the p-lace of Hamish Bennett and Ish Sodhi in this game with the series already in the pocket.  

Top players to bet on:

Glenn Philips – Philips had an all-round game last night with 58 runs and bowling figures of 3-0-20-1 in a rain curtailed game. He will be eager to prove himself with both bat and ball in this game too to strengthen his position in the playing XI.  

Tim Southee – Tim Southee had bowling figures of 4-0-221-2 in the match and dismissed the dangerous looking Soumya Sarkar in a crucial time to tilt the game in his team’s favour.  

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Martin Guptill, Devon Conway, Glenn Philips, Finn Allen, Daryl Mitchell, Mark Chapman, Will Young, Tim Southee (C), Lockie Ferguson, Todd Astle, Adam Milne

Bangladesh Preview

Bangladesh batting unit put on a brave fight in this match with Soumya Sarkar scoring a quick-fire fifty in this match. Mohammed Naim (38 runs) and Mahmudullah (21 runs) looked good for their time in the middle but the rest of batting lien-up did not contribute for the team` cause.

Nasul Ahmed and Shoriful Islam were the pick of the bowlers as they had combined figures of 7-0-41-1 in the game. Taskin Ahmed, Mahedi Hasan, and Saifuddin went for runs at over 10 RPO giving easy runs to the opposition in the middle overs.

Top players to bet on:

Mohammed Naim – Naim has starts of 27 & 38 in the 2 T20I matches so far. He shared a 81-run partnership with Soumya Sarkar putting his team in good position in the chase last night.

Nasum Ahmed – Ahmed has bowling figures of 2/30 & 0/25 in the 2 T20I matches opening the bowling and he has been their most economical bowler this series. We expect him to pick some crucial wickets in this match.    

Bangladesh Predicted Playing XI:

Mohammad Naim, Liton Das (wk), Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah (c), Afif Hossain, Mehidy Hasan, Mohammad Saifuddin, Nasum Ahmed , Shoriful Islam, Al Amin Hossain

Weather Conditions

Auckland is expected to be dark and cloudy on the match day. We expect rain to have an impact in this match too.

Venue Details

Eden Park is a drop-in pitch and is expected to be a batting friendly pitch. Bowlers will find this ground graveyard due to the smaller boundary dimensions. We expect the average scores to be around 180-200 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

With rain threat looming and DLS equation consideration both teams will look to bat second at this venue and no target is safe at this venue.  

NZ vs BAN Winning Prediction

Bangladesh are no match to New Zealand in terms of player’s ability in these conditions but they had their best game of the tour last night where they looked good to chase the total at the half-way mark.  They will look to end the tour on a high with a win in this match. New Zealand have been hugely untested and will be eager to complete a clean sweep over Bangladesh with a win in the last game. We expect New Zealand to win this match.

NEW ZEALAND will win the match & the series 3-0
