Recent Match Report - Bangladesh vs New Zealand 2nd T20I 2021



New Zealand have also brought in Hamish Bennett and left out Blair Tickner and Jacob Duffy

Toss Bangladesh opted to bat vs New Zealand

An unchanged Bangladesh chose to bat in their second T20I against New Zealand, who made two changes to their XI after the thrashing a couple of days ago in the series opener.
New Zealand handed a debut to Wellington Firebirds’ tearaway Ben Sears, and brought in Hamish Bennett. They came in for Blair Tickner and Jacob Duffy. There was no place for the big-hitting Finn Allen, who has recovered from a bout of Covid-19 recently and linked up with the squad ahead of the second game of the series.

The hosts would be upbeat after their seven-wicket win in the opener in which they bowled New Zealand out for 60, the lowest T20I total by any team against Bangladesh. It gave them a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.


Bangladesh: 1 Mohammad Naim, 2 Liton Das, 3 Shakib Al Hasan, 4 Mushfiqur Rahim, 5 Mahmudullah (capt), 6 Nurul Hasan (wk), 7 Afif Hossain, 8 Mahedi Hasan, 9 Mohammad Saifuddin, 10 Mustafizur Rahman, 11 Nasum Ahmed
New Zealand: 1 Rachin Ravindra, 2 Finn Allen, 3 Will Young, 4 Colin de Grandhomme, 5 Tom Latham (capt & wk), 6 Henry Nicholls, 7 Cole McConchie, 8 Doug Bracewell, 9 Ajaz Patel, 10 Hamish Bennett, 11 Ben Sears
