New Zealand continued its complete domination of Bangladesh as it won the first T20 match of the series very comfortably. 66 runs is a massive margin even in ODI’s but in T20’s it is representative of the gulf that has been present between these two sides. Bangladesh is without its three most experienced players and this is a great opportunity to blood in some youngsters to see if they can step up and perform at the international level.
New Zealand also gave debuts to two players in the previous match and would be thrilled at the development of Devon Conway. Were the sparks of promise in the Bangladeshi youngsters enough to convince you to take a punt on the underdog in this match? Is there value in other betting markets of the match? Let us try and find out!
New Zealand vs Bangladesh 2nd T20 2021 is going to be played at McLean Park, Napier on the 30th March 2021.
The team that New Zealand played in the first T20 was missing quite a few of its first-choice players. There was no Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Jimmy Neesham, or Trent Boult. These are world-class players and the fact that New Zealand did not miss a beat without them points to their impressive bench strength.
We had expected Adam Milne to get a game but that did not happen. He is another genuinely quick bowler that could get a run in this next match.
The strength of the batting is clear to everyone. Devon Conway is in terrific form and top-scored with 92 not out once more. His consistency in the T20 format has been quite remarkable really and the last two times he has passed fifty, he has finished on a 90+ score while remaining not out.
Will Young smashed four sixes, Glenn Phillips scored at a strike of 240 at the end of the inning, and Martin Guptill got a start. We are also very hopeful to see the best of Finn Allen in this tournament. He is a ferocious striker of the cricket ball and has been in excellent form in domestic cricket.
With Mark Chapman and Daryl Mitchell also in the lower order and most of the bowlers capable of hitting a few big hits as well, New Zealand’s batting is definitely superior to Bangladesh’s.
The return of Lockie Ferguson is a big bonus for New Zealand in the bowling department. He can bowl at any stage of the inning and rushes the batsmen with his pace. New Zealand’s three leading bowlers went for under 8 runs an over and picked up seven wickets in the previous match.
Only the fifth bowler’s quota shared between Daryl Mitchell, Mark Chapman, and Glenn Phillips was expensive.
Martin Guptill, Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Will Young, GD Phillips, Mark Chapman, Daryl Mitchell, TG Southee, Ish Sodhi, Hamish Bennett, Adam Milne.
Every match that Bangladesh plays and loses has an air of inevitability around it. Losing is not a surprise and is in fact the expected result for Bangladesh against most sides. A lot of teams have a tough time while touring abroad, and especially New Zealand, however, to not get a single result in your favor in any format is rare.
We wish there was a button to unshackle Bangladesh and to let them play freely. They are already losing every match that they play and so they might as well give it their best shot.
To be fair, there was some intent shown by the Bangladeshi batsmen in the previous match but none of them could go on and really make it count. Three out of the top-4 batsmen got out for a score of equal to or less than five. Even the players that stayed at the crease for some time could not score at a strike rate of more than 150 and there were a total of two sixes hit in the entire inning.
Keep in mind that Bangladesh was chasing a total of 210 in that match and so it had no option but to go much harder. After a couple of wickets, though, it was like Bangladesh never truly believed it could win.
The performances of Mohammad Naim, Atif Hossain, and to some extent Mohammad Saifuddin will hopefully give the top-order the belief to play freely in this next match. In terms of consistency, form, and six-hitting ability, Bangladesh is leagues behind New Zealand.
We have already seen Bangladesh’s bowling struggle to be effective and that is just something that does not change overnight. Mustafizur, arguably the best of the lot, gave away 48 in four overs and looked quite listless.
Nasum Ahmed and Mahedi Hasan did reasonably well and maybe if the others get their act together, Bangladesh can challenge New Zealand a bit more.
Mohammad Naim, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mahedi Hasan, Mohammad Saifuddin, Nasum Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Taskin Ahmed.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. The surface is excellent for batting and is not going to change. There have been three T20 internationals played here and two of them have been won by the team chasing. We don’t think winning the toss is a very big advantage, though.

Napier is expected to enjoy some nice weather on match day and so we should not have any weather-related interruptions. The pitch is an absolute batting beauty with the ball coming on nicely to the bat, the boundaries relatively small, and the outfield absolutely blazing fast. The highest score recorded is 241 while 165 is the least.
We don’t think any team batting first will be happy with less than 200 on the board and even that is far from being a safe score to defend. Plenty of runs and plenty of sixes are in store.
New Zealand has been playing so well and still has so much left in the bank that it is difficult to bet against it. Bangladesh has shown faint glimmers of promise but nothing else. Its bowling is poor and the batting has failed match after match. There is no choice but to bet on New Zealand to win even though the odds are not very attractive right now.
Bet on New Zealand to win.
This is our favorite bet of this match. The average first-innings score at McLean Park is 185 and so the conditions are going to be very batsman-friendly. The likes of Devon Conway, Finn Allen, and Martin Guptill are going to enjoy batting in these conditions against a weak Bangladeshi bowling attack. There are plenty of players on both sides that can get over this score with ease and help you nearly double your money.
The odds on this bet are the not the greatest but think this is a very safe bet to make. If you are bettting a multiple bet or an accumulator then adding this one into the mix is a great option. New Zealand smashed 10 sixes in the previous match while Bangladesh managed just 2. In terms of six-hitting power and batsman form, New Zealand is far ahead of Bangladesh.
