New Zealand beat Bangladesh by 27 runs
- New Zealand certainly showed some ring rust in their opening match of the tri-series against Pakistan, who defeated them comfortably, but Bangladesh just one day later gives the Black Caps an ideal opportunity for them to bounce back.
- Whilst plenty of New Zealand batters contributed against Pakistan, no one could go on and make that game-changing big score and that is needed here if they are to accrue a winning total whether they be setting or chasing a target.
- Bangladesh’s poor form continued as they, like New Zealand also lost to Pakistan in their first game of this tri-series, their defeat coming via a 21-run margin after they failed to chase down 168 to win.
- The Tigers have now lost each of their last three T20i fixtures in all competitions against full ICC members ahead of this next encounter, in which they will hope to have Shakib Al Hasan available following his late withdrawal vs Pakistan due to travel fatigue.
The expectation is that a significantly sharper New Zealand will put in a much-improved performance here compared to what they showed last time out, especially now that they’ve gotten some important match fitness under their belts. Bangladesh aren’t as a strong an opposition as Pakistan and their poor form cannot be ignored. New Zealand should maintain control of this one throughout and ultimately emerge victorious.
