BAN vs NZ Tips, Stats & Team for Today Match Prediction
Match: BAN vs NZ T20 Match Prediction
Time: 08 September, 03:30 PM (IST)
Venue: Shere Bangla National Stadium – Dhaka, Bangladesh
- The pitch in Mirpur is not a run fest by any stretch of the imagination but no home player has hit an individual score of more than 39 in the series. We are backing Shakib Al Hasan to come to the fore and be Bangladesh’s highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Mahedi Hasan has taken 4 wickets in the series and is a strong choice for their top wicket taker in this IT20.
- Finn Allen made 15 in his first game of the series on Sunday. He is a talented white ball opening batter and is our tip for New Zealand’s highest scoring player in this match. Ajaz Patel is the leading wicket taker in the series with 6 dismissals and is a good bet for New Zealand’s top wicket taker in this clash.
- We expect Shakib Al Hasan and Ajaz Patel to be the potential match winners on either side. Patel is our prediction for the Player of The Match Award in this game.
Live Streaming: The match can be watched live on T Sports, B TV and Gazi TV in Bangladesh. Spark Sports will show live coverage in New Zealand.
Weather & Pitch Report:
The pitch in Mirpur remains tacky and tough to really tee-off on. It was no surprise to see that none of the batsmen were able to hit a six on Sunday.
Winning the toss has meant choosing to bat first in every game in the series so far. We predict this will continue in the fourth IT20.

BAN Team News:
The Tigers have kept the same XI for all three games in the series so far and there will be calls for changes after such a large defeat in the last match. The batting has not fired properly but we expect the same line-up to be given another chance to post a competitive score.
NZ Team News:
The Black Caps have juggled their starting XI around in the opening three games of the series but will be very tempted to keep faith with the group who produced a 52 run win on Sunday. Five batters made significant or useful contributions in a real team effort.

Who will win today match: BAN vs NZ T20 Match Fantasy Team
Judging by the results so far in the series, the two sides are moving in separate directions in terms of their form. We expect this game to be closer than Sunday’s encounter but are predicting a second successive win for New Zealand to setup a decisive final game.
BAN Key Players:
The experienced keeper-batsman is averaging 34 in the series. Without the pressure of wicket-keeping, he should be able to contribute a decent number of runs.
Shakib Al Hasan:
The all-rounder got a second ball duck on Sunday but remains an integral part of the side. He is looked up to by all players in the team.
The off-spinner continues to chip in with wickets whilst keeping his economy rate below 5 runs per over. He has taken at least 1 wicket in each game in the series.
NZ Key Players:
The captain produced only 5 runs in the third IT20 but still has the most runs in the series and his wicket-keeping has been strong throughout.
The opener has been playing in the UK for the last few months and got his first appearance in Bangladesh on Sunday. He looked comfortable in the conditions and will build on his 15.
The left-arm spinner had only played 2 IT20s before this tour but has immediately looked at ease as the leader of the attack. No bowler on either side has taken more wickets in the series.
BAN Team Form:
- Bangladesh will look to write off Sunday’s performance and defeat as a one-off. The stats certainly show that they are a strong force in home conditions in this format.
NZ Team Form:
- New Zealand’s performances have gone from poor in the opening game to very strong in the third match. They have strong momentum in this group of players.
Finn Allen, Rachin Ravindra, Will Young, Colin de Grandhomme, Tom Latham(w/c), Henry Nicholls, Tom Blundell, Cole McConchie, Scott Kuggeleijn, Ajaz Patel, Jacob Duffy, Doug Bracewell, Hamish Bennett, Matt Henry, Blair Tickner, Ben Sears.
