NZ vs BAN Dream11 Prediction 2nd T20I, New Zealand tour of Bangladesh, 2021

NZ vs BAN Dream11 PredictionProbable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of the 2nd T20I match at McLean Park, Napier.

New Zealand:

New Zealand is one of the toughest teams to beat at home, and they proved once again by winning the first T20I comfortably by 66 runs.

Martin Guptill has been in decent form in the recent matches and giving an excellent start to the team, but the debutant Finn Allen was out for a duck. At No.3, Devon Conway has been in tremendous form and was unlucky to miss his century by just eight runs.

In the middle-order, another debutant, Will Young, batted brilliantly, scoring a half-century, and Glenn Phillips has been doing the role of finisher very well. The bowling department has also appeared to be in a perfect rhythm. Ish Sodhi has been performing well in the T20Is and bowled brilliantly, picking up 4 wickets in the first match. 

Lockie Ferguson has played the T20 format after quite some time but bowled well, picking up two wickets, and the senior player, Time Southee, also performed decently.

New Zealand has been performing; it is almost sure that they would be sealing the series by winning the next match.


Bangladesh is having a very tough time as they lost all the ODI series matches, and now they have lost the first match of the T20I series. They need to regroup themselves and play confidently to make a good comeback.

The young left-handed batsman, Mohammad Naim, batted decently. Still, his partner Liton Das and at No.3 Soumya Sarkar got out early, and the next experienced batsman Mithun also didn’t score much and put the team in trouble.

In the middle-order, skipper Mahmudullah looked in good touch, but he too fell early. The all-rounders Afif Hossain and Saifuddin put up a good fight, but it wasn’t enough, and they had to lose the match. The bowlers conceded a lot of runs as the opposition batsmen completely smashed them.

They all conceded many runs, and only Nasum Ahmed and Mahedi Hasan managed to pick up wickets. The players would be very low on confidence, and they need to show a lot of courage to win the series from this point.
