NZ vs BAN 1st T20I Match Preview:
New Zealand whitewashed the visitors 3-0 in the ODI series. They are led by Tim Southee in this T20I series. Experienced players like Kane Williamson, Trent Boult, Jimmy Neesham, Kyle Jamieson, Mitchell Santner and Tim Seifert have been given rest. Two uncapped players, Finn Allen and Will Young are added to the 13-man squad.
Finn Allen, the highest run-scorer in the Super Smash Tournament 2021, is expected to open the innings with Martin Guptill. His strike rate was 190+ in the Super Smash tournament and will look to carry on that momentum here as well. However, this squad looks like their B team as they are testing out their players for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2021 in India.
After the loss in the ODI series, Bangladesh will look forward to winning this T20I series and end the tour on a high note. Mustafizur Rahman will lead their bowling unit. Bangladesh team will be missing the services of Shakib Al Hassan as he has taken paternity leave.
