BAN vs NZ Prediction: The New Zealand tour of Bangladesh will kick start today with the first of the five T20Is in Dhaka. New Zealand side is without many of their top international players and Tom Latham will be leading the side in the absence of regular skipper Kane Williamson. Latham’s side has a tough series lying ahead against the team which outplayed mighty Australia a few weeks before. Let’s see if they are up to it.
Bangladesh vs New Zealand, 1st T20I
01 September 2021, 03:30 PM IST
Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka
BAN – 60%
Bangladesh, without a doubt, has been the best team amongst both these teams. The New Zealand team is not a full-strength team and Bangladesh is playing a full-strength side that too in their own backyard. This pretty well weighs up the home side’s chances in this series. Expect a Bangladesh win to start the series.
Betway: BAN: 1.61; NZ: 2.10

Pitch in Dhaka is a proper spin pitch. It was very much visible in the series against Australia. The average scores in this series are also expected to be on the 120-130 lines as it was seen in the previous series.
If BAN bats first: 130-140
If NZ bats first: 120-130
A light shower is expected during the match. Hence the chances of full 40 overs being played are quite less.
WICKET-KEEPERS: Tom Blundell
BATSMEN: Tom Latham, Liton Das, Mahmudullah
ALL-ROUNDERS: Colin de Grandhomme, Rachin Ravindra, Shakib Al Hasan
BOWLERS: Ajaz Patel, Mahedi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Nasum Ahmed
Players who are expected to perform well as per BAN vs NZ Dream11 Prediction.
Shakib Al Hasan: He was the leading run-scorer for Bangladesh in the series against Australia. His ability to play spin and pace equally well will work in his favour against the NZ side.
Tom Latham: In the absence of top international players, captain Latham has to step up to the mark. He is a quality top-order batsman and has the ability to play long innings.
Mustafizur Rahman: He was the leading wicket-taker for Bangladesh in the series against Australia. Expect him to replicate more or less the same feat against New Zealand.
Ajaz Patel: He is the lone spinner for New Zealand. In the spinning tracks of Bangladesh, he can be New Zealand’s main weapon.
