New Zealand vs Bangladesh, 1st T20I Match Preview:
New Zealand batting is in great form currently. Devon Conway is a major factor in the batting, who will don the gloves as well. Finn Allen is an exciting talent with a reputation as a power-hitter. Daryl Mitchell in the 3rd ODI against the same opposition hit his maiden ODI ton and will be looking to continue dominating the Bangladeshi bowlers.
The bowling is looking a bit weak with many first-choice players not available. Tim Southee will be leading the side and will be the key bowler for his side. Ish Sodhi is a proven wicket-taker, especially in the middle-overs.
Bangladesh batting didn't click in the ODIs and they will be missing the services of Tamim Iqbal in the format. Mahmudullah will be the crucial player for his side and will look to continue with the momentum he got after scoring 76 in the 3rd ODI. Soumya Sarkar might prove to be the game-changer for Bangladesh.
The bowling will be led by Mushfiqur Rahman, who will look to brush up his skills for the upcoming IPL and World Cup later this year. Mohammad Saifuddin is a potential match-winner of Bangladesh.
The Bangla Tigers haven't beaten New Zealand ever in the T20 format. The visitors will be playing a T20 game after over a year while the Kiwis are on a three-series winning streak and have recently defeated Australia. It will be tough for Bangladesh to get a win here in New Zealand.
