Cricket Free Tips | Bangladesh vs New Zealand, 2021: 5th T20I

The Bangladesh-New Zealand T20I Series closes on Friday afternoon in Mirpur, Dhaka, with the fifth game. Bangladesh won the fourth T20I by 6 wickets to take an unassailable 3-1 lead after the Black Caps won the third game.

Some experts were concerned about Bangladesh’s form after winning narrowly in the second game and then losing the third T20I. However, they were back to their best in the field, suffocating New Zealand and looking like a formidable opponent.

Considering that this is their second-string squad, New Zealand has performed admirably in the series. They’ve fought hard throughout the series and have a good chance of winning it.

 

Weather
Temperatures will be around 33 degrees Celsius throughout the game, with a gradual decrease as the game progresses. The humidity will be high, and there will be a good chance of rain.

 

Pitch
A rank turner that the visitors were unable to adjust in Dhaka. Spin bowlers have flourished, while pacers have benefited from cutters and slower bowls—the team batting first score of around 140 runs.
