New Zealand v Bangladesh 1st T20I – Team News

  • Finn Allen – The young RCB batting prospect could be given his chance to shine on the international stage. He is missing the first few games of the upcoming IPL after his inclusion in the squad.
  • Kyle Jamieson – His RCB teammate isn’t available due to his IPL commitments. Unlike Allen he will be heading over to India to prepare for this year’s tournament.
  • Tim Southee – He will captain the Black Caps in the absence of Kane Williamson, who, along with Boult, Neesham, Seifert, Santner and Jamieson, is heading to the IPL.
  • Liton Das – The wicketkeeper-batsman failed to build on the starts he got in the ODI series but can shine now returning to the shortest format.
  • Mustafizur Rahman – The Bangladesh bowler did okay in the preceding ODI series and more will be needed from him in this match. He also did well against the Windies at the start of the year.

New Zealand v Bangladesh 1st T20I – Betting Tips and Prediction

This is a very depleted New Zealand outfit due to their main stars heading to the IPL.

However, they should still have enough to get the job done against Bangladesh.

Given the home side’s short outright win price, looking for value in other markets is a good option.

Mustafizur to Get Over 20.5 Performance Points

Mustafizur Rahman has been among the wickets of late and can bag more in this match.

He shone domestically at the end of last year and carried that to the international stage against the West Indies at the start of 2021.

The left-arm seamer also took wickets in the last two ODIs and looks the main threat for the visitors.

His price of 2.0 with bet365 to get over 20.5 player performance points looks a great bet.

Remember, he gets 20 points for every wicket, one per run and 10 for every catch in the field.

Back Allen to Take his Chance

Finn Allen has been given a maiden call-up for this series and is likely to get a start after missing the start of the IPL.

The 21-year-old batsman burst onto the scene with some sublime displays during the Super Smash.

He was the league’s top run-scorer with 512 at an average of 56 and an eye-catching strike-rate of 193.

It was those showings that made RCB move for him when they lost opener Josh Philippe.

Allen has taken every chance he has been given so far and there is no reason to think he won’t do the same against Bangladesh.

His price of 3.75 with bet365 looks a good bet.

More Wickets for Southee

Tim Southee will captain the side for this clash due to the absence of Kane Williamson and other IPL stars.

He will also have more weight to carry in the bowling department but looks a fine bet in the New Zealand top bowler market.

His record at this venue in both T20Is and the Super Smash is really good and he can relish this return.

Southee can be backed at 3.74 with 22Bet to take the most wickets for his team.
