BAN vs NZ Dream11 Team, Bangladesh vs New Zealand 1st T20I Prediction who will win


BAN vs NZ Dream11 Today Match Prediction: Bangladesh are on a winning spree in the shortest format of the game at the moment. They hammered Australia by preparing absolute rank turners in the same venue where this series is going to take place as well. Australia managed to win just one game out of 5 and they couldn’t win some of the crucial moments in the game which required some calm head to take them home.

New Zealand don’t have their A choice players for this series as all have decided to take rest and be ready for the all important Indian Premier League. If the wickets are low and aids fast spin, New Zealand might have a real time overcoming the host side.

BAN vs NZ 1st T20I Dream11 Prediction

  • Soumya Sarkar scored 66 runs in 3 games in the last tour to NZ
  • Mohammad Naim was impressive last time around where he scored 84 runs in 3 games
  • Mahmudullah scored just 32 runs in 2 games and struggled badly in NZ
  • Shoriful Islam picked 2 wickets in 2 games at an average of 43 in NZ when BAN toured last time around. The conditions in BAN should suit him this time around.

BAN vs NZ Today Match Prediction

Bangladesh will have 2 of their experienced players for this series in Litton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim. Both these players missed out on previous 2 series for Bangladesh against Australia and Zimbabwe.

They add massive strength to this already potent side in their home. The batting of Bangladesh looks well settled at the moment with Litton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim covering the top order flaws while Afif Hossain and Shamim Hossain covering their lower middle order.

New Zealand don’t have their best players of spin bowling in Kane Williamson and Glenn Philipps. They have a thin batting line up and a bowling attack that doesn’t go well with the kind of wickets that will be on offer.

BAN vs NZ Winning Chances

The host nation walk into the game and the series as favorites. They have a full strength squad compared to New Zealand who have rested their 2 best T20 players. They don’t have the likes of Trent Boult, Adam Milne and Kyle Jamieson as well who all would have made this an equal contest. It will be an uphill task for New Zealand to compete with this Bangladesh side who are unbeatable in their home.

One thing that favors New Zealand is their approach which is not overly aggressive and they can easily adapt to wickets like this and asses the right score straight up. They know a thing or two about percentage cricket. If they can somehow get to 140 or 150 batting first, they can choke the opposition on a dying wicket bowling second.
