Bangladesh vs New Zealand 2021 Squads

Bangladesh:

Bangladesh have registered a 4-1 T20 series victory against Australia in what was their last international assignment. They would be brimming with confidence at the moment and would be desperate to face New Zealand in the upcoming five T20 internationals.

Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das, who missed out in the last series against Australia, are back into the squad. Besides, Aminul Islam has also been added to the 19-man squad. The trio’s inclusion is going to bolster Bangladesh’s squad further.
