NZ vs BAN Stats : New Zealand will take on Bangladesh in the first T20I match at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Sunday, 28 March. New Zealand whitewashed the visitors in the ODI series and now will look to continue their winning run in T20Is as well.
New Zealand’s performance in the ODI series was top class and now they will shift their focus on the T20Is. They are without their senior players like Trent Boult, Kane Williamson, Tim Seifert, Jimmy Neesham etc but still have some fine players and it’s a good opportunity for young guns like Finn Allen, Will Young, Adam Milne to show their talent and impress the selectors ahead of the WT20 tournament. On the other side, Bangladesh who did disappoint in the ODIs have a good chance to open their win account against an inexperienced New Zealand side but for that they need to play their best cricket and the likes of Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim, Liton Das, Mustafizur Rahim will have to give their best on the field.
