New Zealand v Bangladesh Preview:
Russell Domingo wasn’t a pleased man after Bangladesh’s fifth loss on tour. In the second T20I, his side had reduced New Zealand to 55 for 3 and they let the advantage slip. From being 58 for 3 in seven overs, New Zealand had surged to 102 for 4 in 12.2 overs before the first rain break. Once play resumed, Glenn Phillips and Daryl Mitchell smashed the bowlers all-around – with the ball getting wet and difficult to control – and the hosts looked set to breach the 200-run mark before the second rain break ended the first innings.
To make matters worse, Bangladesh walked out not knowing the target they were chasing under the DLS method. So it wasn’t a surprise when Domingo quipped, “it all seemed to be stacked against us”. Bangladeshhad a fair crack at the target of 170 and Soumya Sarkar even cruised to 40 off 15 at one stage. But the inability of Mohammad Naim to inject some impetus into the innings cost them in the end. Bangladesh, at certain stages, have taken the fight to the hosts but haven’t been able to string together a complete game. When the bowlers got things in control, New Zealand’s batsmen found a way to get ahead. When one batsman got going, there was no support. Bangladesh will be relieved the T20 World Cup will be played in conditions far more familiar to them.
Because the series in New Zealand has only given them more questions than answers. Bangladesh have now suffered 31 straight losses in New Zealand since first touring in 2001. But is there light at the end of the tunnel for them? New Zealand will aim for another series sweep as they continue to offer players a chance to board the flight to India. Since the 0-5 T20I series loss to India early last year, New Zealand have won all their T20I series’ at home and will look to cap off their season with another trophy in the bag.

Pitch & Weather Report:
After a rain-hit encounter in Napier, there’s more rain predicted in Auckland. That could make things tricky for the sides. The last T20I between New Zealand and Pakistan saw scores of 153 and 156. However, there could be another big-scoring affair given the short boundaries.
