Bangladesh vs New Zealand 2nd T20I Betting Tips 03/09/2021

Teams Status

New Zealand

As ESPN summed it, the opening T20I was a nightmare for New Zealand in its truest shape and form. The entire world knew that the Kiwis would struggle but few would have thought that they’d succumb to their joint-lowest total of T20I cricket.

Just consider the hilarity of it all. Eleven professional crickets combined to score just 60 runs and could not play out 120 balls – such was the wicket.

It wasn’t a spin-friendly wicket but a batsman-enemy wicket. What’s worse is that the Black Caps will have to endure this nightmare four more times over the next week or so.

One good news for New Zealand is that they are getting back Finn Allen, who has shaken off a bout with Covid and has rejoined the team bubble.


Good thing about Bangladesh was that they owned the wicket prepared for the series, with Shakib Al Hasan admitting that the surface was even more difficult than the one made for the Australia series.

So difficult that it even troubled the hosts themselves, who took 15 overs just to get to the 60-run target.

While their guest will certainly consider chopping and changing, Bangladesh might also at least think about it. However, any changes made will probably not be to their opening pair, whom they’d want to give as much game time together as possible because Tamim Iqbal has taken himself out of contention for World T20.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Total runs for over 1 in 1st inning – New Zealand – 1st Innings – Under 4.5 @ 1.93

After what transpired in the tour opener, there is no way that New Zealand batters would take any risk in the first over. We expect them to just be content with blocking and keeping their wicket – at least in the opening exchanges. This bet can be found on Dafabet.

Tip: Batsman Runs – Colin de Grandhomme – 1st Innings – Over 13.5 @ 1.87

While the rest of the lineup is composed of rookies, Colin de Grandhomme packs some experience and his team would rely on him to shoulder the main responsibility. If Finn Allen is declared fit, he’d be the most talented batter but still at times like these you’d expect Grandhomme to earn his keep rather than a 22-year-old who is coming off of Covid illness. The play can be found on Dafabet.


We don’t see this New Zealand side being able to avoid a defeat. It could be more competitive but they should still end up losing.
