BAN vs NZ Dream11: After a resounding win in the first T20I, Bangladesh will take on New Zealand in the second T20I at Dhaka. Bangladesh looks like a better team and have better resources for these conditions. The slow and turning pitch at Dhaka has helped their spinners which makes them a dangerous side. On the other hand, New Zealand are here playing with a relatively inexperienced side. None of the NZ players are in the T20 World Cup squad. This will be an opportunity to stake their claim for the mainstream side for the future.
