After a dominating win in the three-match ODI series, New Zealand will aim to extend their lead over Bangladesh when the two sides kick off the T20I series, with the opening game on Sunday (March 28).
The COVID-19 situation is under control in New Zealand and all six white-ball matches are being played at different venues. The opening T20I will be played at Seddon Park in Hamilton. The match will kick off at 6:30 AM IST.
Bangladesh will be without the services of senior batsman Tamim Iqbal. The ODI captain had withdrawn from T20Is due to personal reasons. They are already without Shakib al Hasan, who didn’t travel to NZ. Hasan Mahmud, who is in NZ, is also unavailable for selection.
