Bangladesh vs New Zealand, 4th T20I: Bangladesh will come into a face-off with New Zealand at the Sher-E-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on September 8 in the fourth T20I of the five-match T20I series. Bangladesh is already marching ahead in the series with a 2-1 lead & a win in the fourth T20I would help them to clinch the series. New Zealand on the other hand, will be aiming to win the third T20I to keep the series alive.
After winning the first two T20Is, Bangladesh has suffered a huge loss in the third t20I. Chasing an average of 129, hosts batsmen failed miserably as the Black Caps bundled their innings for 76. Only three of the hosts’ batsmen managed to score double figures. Bangladesh’s batsmen need to step up & support their bowlers in the fourth T20I against New Zealand. Bangladesh would be aiming to display an all-around performance in the fourth T20I to clinch the T20I series.
New Zealand on the other hand has bounced back & displayed a stellar performance to win the third T20I. After scoring 128 on board, the bowlers stepped up as they knocked out Bangladesh for a meager 76 thereby winning the match by 52 runs. Ajaz Patel and Cole McConchie starred with the ball, picking up four and three wickets respectively.
New Zealand’s batsmen & bowlers both made good contributions & they will be aiming to repeat the same performance in the fourth T20I as well. The Black Caps will be eager to emerge victorious in the fourth T20I & save the series from loss while Bangaldesh will look ahead to get their winning momentum back & win the series in the fourth T20I itself.
