Sophie Devine-led unit suffered their first defeat of the competition. New Zealand put up a valiant effort and lost the game by just three runs. In the game against India, New Zealand bowlers delivered another disciplined performance. Lea Tahuhu, Rosemary Mair and Amelia Kerr put in decent performances to restrict India to a modest score of 133 runs in their allotted 20 overs.

Leg-spinner Amelia Kerr was the standout bowler on display for New Zealand women. She picked up two wickets and conceded 21 runs in his four overs. Medium-pacer Rosemary Mair claimed two wickets, while Lea Tahuhu, Sophie Devine and Leigh Kasperek picked one wicket each.

Chasing 134 runs for victory, Rachel Priest and Sophie Devine failed to capitalize on their decent starts.

Bangladesh Women Preview

Captain Salma Khatun will be hoping that the side can produce a strong fight against New Zealand Women. A defeat in this game will see them become the first team to get eliminated from the ICC Women's T20 World Cup.

In the batting department, the side will be depending on the likes of Murshida Khatun, wicket-keeper Nigar Sultana and Fargana Hoque to produce the bulk of the runs. In the game played against Australia, Murshida Khatun failed to produce a big score for the side.

Wicket-keeper Nigar Sultana and Fargana Hoque put on a 50-run partnership for Bangladesh Women. Fargana Hoque was the standout performer with the bat and finished the innings with the top-score of 36 runs off 35 balls with the help of four boundaries. Nigar Sultana played a supporting role to Fargana and chipped in with 19 runs off 32 balls with the help of two boundaries.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of Jahanara Alam, Nahida Akter and Salma Khatun to make crucial breakthroughs. The bowling unit has lacked potency and struggled to create breakthroughs in the previous game played against Australia Women.

Bangladesh Women Predicted Playing XI:

Salma Khatun (c), Nigar Sultana (wk), Nahida Akter, Khadija Tul Kubra, Shamima Sultana, Murshida Khatun, Sanjida Islam, Fargana Hoque, Rumana Ahmed, Fahima Khatun, Jahanara Alam.
