Bangladesh's New Zealand tour will culminate with a T20I fixture at Eden Park in Auckland. The visitors have never played a T20I on this ground, while New Zealand have a 9-14 win-loss record in the shortest format of the game here.

That said, the Black Caps emerged victorious in the two T20I matches played at Eden Park last year. They beat the West Indies cricket team by five wickets in November before recording a win against Pakistan by the same margin.

The Kiwis will aim to complete a hat-trick of T20I victories at this stadium. With Eden Park set to host its 24th T20I match, here's a look at some important stats from previous Auckland T20Is.
