NZ vs BAN 1st T20I: New Zealand will play against Bangladesh in the first T20I of the three-match series at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Friday, December 2. The visitors came into the series after having a disappointing Asia Cup that saw the defending champions exit the tournament very early. And, they will face a tough challenge against the Kiwis, who has a great record at home.
On the other hand, Sophie Devine-led New Zealand are heading into the three-match T20I series on a high note. The Commonwealth Games’ Bronze medalists will hope for another series win against Bangladesh in the upcoming series before the start of the 50-over series on 11th December. For the hosts, Hannah Rowe and Saachi Shahri could play a key role as they did well in warm-up matches. Meanwhile, Bangladesh will also be trying to a solid start to the series as well.
