Bangladesh's New Zealand tour will move to Seddon Park in Hamilton this Sunday.
The Kiwis recently whitewashed Tamim Iqbal's men in a 3-match ODI series and will thus start as the favorites to win the T20I series as well. Bangladesh have never beaten New Zealand in an away T20I fixture and might find it tough to topple the Kiwis at home.
The Seddon Park has been a happy hunting ground for the New Zealand cricket team. The stadium has played host to 11 T20I matches so far, where the hosts have emerged victorious eight times.
The pitch at this venue assists the batsmen. In the 11 T20Is played on this ground, the team batting first has finished with a score below 150 on only one occasion.
Martin Guptill has achieved much success in Hamilton T20Is. He is the leading run-getter in T20Is at Seddon Park, with an aggregate of 339 runs in seven innings.
In the previous T20I match played in Hamilton, New Zealand defeated Pakistan by nine wickets. Mohammed Hafeez scored a 57-ball 99 and guided the visitors to a 163-run total. The pitch was also helpful to the pacers, as Tim Southee had a four-wicket haul for the Kiwis.
In reply, Tim Seifert and Kane Williamson's 131-run partnership ensured that the New Zealand team won the match with nine wickets and four balls to spare.
Considering the past results, the fast bowlers and the batsmen should be expected to be more successful in the Hamilton T20I match between New Zealand and Bangladesh.
