After losing to India Women in their last match, New Zealand Women would be keen to return to winning ways when they lock horns with Bangladesh Women in their penultimate group match of the Women's T20 World Cup 2020. The Kiwis had kicked off their campaign on a winning note against Sri Lanka Women however, they suffered a close defeat versus India in their second game.
The White Ferns will fancy their chances against Bangladesh because the Asian side were thrashed by the hosts in their previous encounter, where the Australia Women absolutely dominated Bangladesh Women in a lop-sided match. If New Zealand win this match, their final game against Australia will become a virtual quarterfinal between the Trans-Tasman rivals.
Bangladesh Women will hope to improve their performance after a disappointing outing against Australia Women. Sanjida Islam and Murshida Khatun will look to bring their 'A' game to the table and give New Zealand Women a run for their money.
On the other side, New Zealand will rest their hopes on the trio of skipper Sophie Devine, Amelia Kerr and Leigh Kasparek to trouble Bangladesh with their skills. All the three players will have to play with responsibility in their team's third group match.
