The Bangladesh cricket board has announced the most awaited schedule for the upcoming New Zealand series at home and it is going to be a belter of a contest between the two teams. The Kiwis last played an international game in the World Test Championship final where they won the trophy and this will be the first assignment for them after that.
On the other hand, the hosts Bangladesh are coming off a first-ever bilateral series win against Australia in any format and they will be riding high on confidence after a 4-1 series win. They have packed their bowling attack with spinners and the wickets are helping them a lot too. It will be interesting to see if the wickets have changed a little as the games have been low-scoring and difficult to bat on.
Schedule For Bangladesh vs New Zealand T20I Series
The schedule has been announced for the upcoming New Zealand five-match T20 international series by the Bangladesh cricket board and the first game is set to get underway on September 1. The series will come to an end on September 10 with the second, third, and fourth games played on September 3, 5, and 8 respectively.
All matches will be held in Dhaka at the Sher-e-Bangla national stadium. New Zealand is scheduled to play a three-match ODI series and a five-match T20I series against Pakistan after the Bangladesh tour as preparation for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
