New Zealand vs Bangladesh Predictions

New Zealand should be too good for Bangladesh in home conditions. Devon Conway has been in magnificent form for the Black Caps so my best bet is for him to score over 25.5 runs.

  • New Zealand have won their last 5 T20I against Bangladesh.
  • New Zealand’s Devon Conway averages 52.28 in T20I cricket.
  • New Zealand’s Devon Conway has scored over 25.5 runs in 6 of his last 8 limited overs matches.
  • Bangladesh’s Mahmudullah has scored 50+ runs in 2 of his last 4 limited overs matches.

Head to Head

New Zealand have won their last five T20I matches against Bangladesh. They last met in January 2018 where the Black Caps won by 27 runs.

New Zealand Form

New Zealand are full of confidence after winning the recently completed ODI series 3-0 against Bangladesh. The hosts also won their last three T20I series’, including a 3-2 victory over Australia.

Devon Conway has been the star of New Zealand cricket this season. The 29-year-old has enjoyed a breakout season and scored his maiden ODI century in the 3rd ODI against Bangladesh.

Considering Conway’s form this season, there is no reason to look past him in the run scoring markets. He averages 52.28 in 11 T20I matches. Conway also scored 126 and 72 runs in his two most recent ODI innings’ against Bangladesh.

New Zealand Injuries & Team News

The Black Caps team will look quite different to the ODI side. Devon Conway opened in the recent T20I series alongside Martin Guptill, but the selectors will certainly want to have a look at Finn Allen during the series.

Glenn Phillips also returns to the side after missing the ODI series. Kane Williamson will not feature in the T20I series with the IPL around the corner.

Fast bowler, Lockie Ferguson also returns to the squad which will be captained by Tim Southee.

Bangladesh Form

Bangladesh have lost four of their last six T20I matches. Their only two victories came at home in March 2020 against lowly Zimbabwe.

Liton Das was the form batsman for Bangladesh against Zimbabwe, scoring 59 and 60 runs in the two matches. He has however struggled up front in the ODI series in foreign conditions.

Mahmudullah seems to carry the most value in the Bangladesh side. He scored an unbeaten 76 in the 3rd ODI against New Zealand. The middle-order batsman has scored 50+ runs in two of his last four limited overs matches while his last provincial T20 match saw him hit 70 runs.

Bangladesh Injuries & Team News

Bangladesh have a very solid side but it is their batting lineup that is of concern. There is plenty of quality in there but playing in New Zealand conditions has proven challenging.

Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudulla and Mushfiqur Rahim will be crucial to the Bangladesh cause. The Tigers are capable of upsetting the odds but one of those three will need to produce the goods.
