nz vs ban Match Prediction & Analysis

Bangladesh are looking a person who is caught up in a frightening dream and are struggling to wake up currently. They are looking abysmal with their performance and they are struggling to match the hosts and are looking miles away from the quality of the cricket they are playing. They are struggling in all departments of the game. New Zealand on the other hand are cruising along with ease and their players are piling up the runs and wickets under their names. We expect the visitors to give some tough fight to the hoists in this game.

Teams Preview

New Zealand Preview

Devon Conway continued his good form from the ODIs to make a brilliant 92 runs in this match. Will Young scored his maiden fifty on debut while Martin Guptill (35 runs) and Glenn Philips (24 runs) played good cameos to take their team total to a massive 10 runs in their 20 overs.

Ish Sodhi was brilliant with the ball taking 4 wickets in the match. Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, and Hamish Bennett were brilliant with the ball as they picked up a wicket each and kept the scoring rate under check. Daryll Mitchell, Mark Chapman, and Glenn Phillips bowled the fifth bowler`s quota for 4-0-35-0.

Top players to bet on:

Devon Conway – Conway is having a dream run in T20I format with 458 runs in 10 innings at an average of 65+ and strike rate of 150+. He has been brutal against Bangladesh in this tour and we expect yet another big knock from him in this match.

Ish Sodhi – Ish Sodhi picked up 4 wickets in his first 2 overs and derailed the Bangladeshi middle order from 43/2 to 59/6 in no time. He will be their lead spinner in the T20I format for the coming matches and will be their X-factor bowler.

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Martin Guptill, Devon Conway, Glenn Philips, Finn Allen, Daryl Mitchell, Mark Chapman, Will Young, Tim Southee (C), Lockie Ferguson, Ish Sodhi, Hamish Bennett

Bangladesh Preview

Mohammed Naim gave a good attacking start with 1his 18-ball 27 runs at top. Their batting line-up fell like a deck of cards and they were never really in the chase any time. Atif Hossain (45 runs) and Mohammed Saifuddin gave some respectability to the total from 59/6 to 122/7. They ended with 144/8 in 20 overs to lose by 66 runs. 

Debutant Nasul Ahmed had decent figures of 4-0-30-2 in the match. Pace trio of Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam, and Mohammed Saifuddin had combined bowling figures of 12-0-141-0 in the match. Mahedi hasan was the lone spinner and he too leaked runs at over 9 RPO. Mehidy Hasan, and Taskin Ahmed might come into the playing XI in this match.

Top players to bet on:

Mohammed Naim – Naim looked good for his 27 runs off 18 balls with 5 boundaries that pierced the gaps in the power play comfortably. We expect him to make a big score in this match.

Nasum Ahmed – Ahmed opened the bowling and dismissed both the Kiwi openers to provide a good start to their team. He will look to strangle the batsmen for room in the power play overs in this match too.   

Bangladesh Predicted Playing XI:

Liton Das (wk), Mohammad Naim, Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah (c), Afif Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Nasum Ahmed , Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman

Venue Details

McLean Park is a batting friendly pitch with an average score of 185 runs. Bowlers must operate smartly and must be spot on with their execution. We expect the average scores to be around 180-200 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

This will be a high scoring venue and both teams will look to chase down the total here. And no target is safe at this venue.

NZ vs BAN Winning Prediction

Bangladesh`s batting has been dismal, bowling poor and fielding horrendous. They are struggling to put on a good performance in all three departments of the game and are missing their senior players badly. New Zealand on the other hand are performing like a space rocket that is on a mission.  They will be high on confidence and will look to add onto Bangladesh’s misery with yet another win in this match. We expect New Zealand to win this match.

New Zealand will win the match & series 2-0
