BAN vs NZ Dream11: Bangladesh will take on New Zealand in the fourth T20I with an eye to seal the series. Hosts Bangladesh were excellent in the first two games and made full use of the inexperienced NZ team. But New Zealand came back strongly in the third T20I by beating Bangladesh by a big margin of 52 runs. The way the visiting spinners have performed so far, they are likely to give Bangladesh batsmen tough time again. Bangladesh have the better resources for these conditions but NZ have the momentum going into this match and they will look to level the series.
