NZ (W) vs BAN (W) – 1st T20i – Team Previews

New Zealand (W)

New Zealand women are now preparing themselves for future ICC tournaments. The team management has introduced some fresh faces to the team and Sophie Divine will be the leading lady. New Zealand is a tough team to beat at their home venue and Bangladesh women might find it hard to dominate the first game.

In this game, the starting pair of Rachel Priest and Jess McFadyen will want to give their team a strong start. Maddy Green and Suzie Bates are experienced players in the middle order and would like to make an impact on the game. Amelia Kerr and Hayley Jensen will be in the lower order of the team.

Molly Penfold and Lea Tahuhu will be responsible to lead the bowling attack and break some early partnerships. Devine has looked in good form with the ball, and she will look to bowl tight spells in the middle overs with Eden Carson, Jess Kerr, and Amelia Kerr.

Bangladesh (W)

Nigar Sultana is the new captain of the side, and she will look for a good start to the series from her players. Her team consists of some experienced players who will be responsible to turn the performance of the Bangladeshi squad. The squad has struggled in the T20 format for a long time and now the time has come to change things.

Murshida Khatun and Dilara Akter shall look to set up a strong opening wicket stand in this game as they face a strong bowling attack. Skipper Nigar Sultana will be responsible to score runs in the middle order with Fargana Hoque and Rumana Ahmed. Fahima Khatun, Ritu Moni, and Salma Khatun will be in the lower order of the team.

Fariha Trisna and Jahanara Alam will be responsible for the bowling attack with the new ball. Bangladesh has struggled with its bowling attack for a while. Salma Khatun is the most experienced bowler on the team, and there would be a big responsibility on her shoulder.

NZ (W) vs BAN (W) – 1st T20i – Probable Playing XI

New Zealand (W): Sophie Devine (c), Suzie Bates, Maddy Green, Amelia Kerr, Hayley Jensen, Lea Tahuhu, Jess McFadyen (wk), Jess Kerr, Eden Carson, Molly Penfold, Lauren Down

NZ (W) vs BAN (W) – 1st T20i – Toss Prediction and Pitch Report

Hagley Oval, Christchurch is a small ground and batsmen find it easy to score quick boundaries. However, the wicket always favours the bowlers and hence the toss-winning team should opt for the ball first.

NZ (W) vs BAN (W) – 1st T20i – Match Prediction

New Zealand has the benefit of being the host and the conditions will be favourable for them. Bangladesh has performed poorly in the T20 format and we predict that New Zealand will score a comfortable win in the first T20.
