Cricket Free Tips | Bangladesh vs New Zealand, 2021: 2nd T20I

Bangladeshi Tigers have gained confidence after winning the series against Australia, as evidenced by their performance in the first T20I against New Zealand. With 5 overs remaining, they defeated the visitors by 7 wickets. Their bowlers carried out the game plans flawlessly, dismissing New Zealand for 60 runs.

The New Zealand team’s second-stringer didn’t put up much of a fight against Bangladeshi bowlers in the opening T20I, being knocked out for just 60 runs. This was their lowest T20I score to date. Finn Allen has entered the bio-bubble after a COVID-19 test came back negative.

 

Weather
The forecast for Dhaka is for temperatures to range between 27~33 degrees Celsius. Friday morning and afternoon are likely to be rainy.

 

Pitch
The pitch of Dhaka’s Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium is a little sluggish. It will help both sides of the spinners. As shown in the first game, the spinners will play a significant role in the subsequent games. The batsmen have struggled against counter-spin and will play their strokes with patience.
