The first T20I between Bangladesh and New Zealand is set to take place at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka on Wednesday.

After a stunning win in the World Test Championship (WTC) final, New Zealand return to competitive action as they begin their T20 World Cup preparations in Bangladesh. However, the hosts are a force to be reckoned with in home conditions and will perhaps start as the favorites against a second-string Kiwi side.

Pitch Report

As seen in the previous series between Australia and Bangladesh, the pitch is likely to be on the slower side with run-scoring being a tad difficult. The openers will look to maximize the powerplay restrictions with the new ball skidding on to the bat nicely. Spin should play a significant role in the middle overs with the pacers also likely to revert to off-pace deliveries. Both teams should look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 150 being par at the venue.


Today’s BAN vs NZ Dream11 match top picks

Wicketkeeper

Tom Latham: Captain Tom Latham isn't a regular in the T20I side for New Zealand. However, he has been pretty consistent in this format on the domestic circuit and should be a handy option to have in your BAN vs NZ Dream11 fantasy team.

Batsman

Colin de Grandhomme: Colin de Grandhomme has the experience of playing in the subcontinent over the last few years. With his ability to score quick runs and bowl some clever medium pace, De Grandhomme will be key for the Kiwis.

All-rounder

Shakib Al Hasan: Star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been Bangladesh's best player with consistent performances with both the bat and ball. Given the nature of the pitch, Shakib is surely one to keep an eye out for in this game.

Bowler

Mustafizur Rahman: Mustafizur Rahman's cutters and yorkers have been the talk of the town over the last few months, with the left-armer dominating the Aussies in the previous series. With a similar pitch on offer, watch out for Mustafizur and clever off-cutters at the backend of the innings.
