New Zealand vs Bangladesh Predictions

Devon Conway has been the breakout player for New Zealand this season. His consistency still offers the best value in the run scoring markets, despite failing in the 2nd T20I. He is my best bet to score over 27.5 runs.

  • New Zealand have won their last 7 T20I matches against Bangladesh.
  • New Zealand’s Devon Conway averages 59.12 in T20I cricket.
  • New Zealand’s Devon Conway has scored 72, 126 & 92* in 3 of his last 4 limited overs matches.
  • New Zealand’s Devon Conway has scored over 27.5 runs in 7 of his last 10 limited overs matches.
  • New Zealand's Devon Conway has won the man of the match award in 2 of his last 3 matches.
  • Bangladesh’s Soumya Sarkar scored 51 runs in the 2nd T20I.

Head to Head

New Zealand have won their last seven T20I matches against Bangladesh. They currently lead Bangladesh 2-0 in the three-match series having won the 2nd T20I in Napier by 26 runs on the D/L method.

New Zealand Form

New Zealand took at unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match T20I series against Bangladesh in their last match. The Black Caps dominated the opening fixture and batted first in Napier yet again.

Devon Conway has been in magnificent form this entire summer but fell for 15 in the 2nd T20I. It was left to Glenn Phillips (58) and Daryl Mitchell (34) to get New Zealand to a 173-run total. 

Rain began to fall in the 18th which meant the hosts' innings ended there. Bangladesh were given a revised total of 171 to chase in 16 overs.

Tim Southee, Hamish Bennett and Adam Milne took two wickets apiece as the Black Caps won by 26 runs on the D/L method.

New Zealand Injuries & Team News

Every player in the New Zealand squad has had a start in the first two T20I matches against Bangladesh bar Todd Astle. He is likely to get his chance in this match.

Bangladesh Form

Bangladesh will be disappointed with their efforts in the 2nd T20I after having New Zealand on the ropes at one stage. With New Zealand at 94-4 after almost 12 overs Bangladesh were in a solid position but allowed the hosts to pull away and score 173 runs.

There were technical problems in Bangladesh’s batting innings as they did not know the D/L total required in the first five overs. Despite that, Soumya Sarkar produced some class with 51 runs while newcomer, Mohammad Naim scored 38 runs.

Unfortunately there were no other notable contributions as Bangladesh ended on 142, 26 runs short of the 171-run D/L target.

Bangladesh Injuries & Team News

Bangladesh will be playing for pride in the final T20I of the series. They have stuck with their young side under the tutelage of Mahmuddullah and should continue to do so for the final match.

After scoring 50+ runs in three of his last four limited over matches, Devon Conway is tipped to score over 27.5 runs and be New Zealand's top run scorer. He can also be backed in the player of the match market after winning the award in two of the last three matches.

Soumya Sarkar scored 51 runs in the 2nd T20I and with many of the others out of form, he is my tip to top score for the visitors.
