Bangladesh vs New Zealand 3rd T20I Betting Tips 05/09/2021

Teams Status

New Zealand

The second T20I was an improvement on the incredibly low scoring series opener and even though runs did not exactly flow, there were still plenty compared to before.

New Zealand will be heartened by their performance even though they ended up losing the match by a very small margin. Chasing 142, the Kiwis ended up needing 20 off the final over. They managed 14 off the first five balls, which meant it needed a sixer off the final ball, with the superb Tom Latham on strike.

Sadly, the dramatic ending was not to be as the Black Caps skipper only managed a run as his team fell five runs short. Latham finished with 65 off 49 deliveries. While the captain played his part, no one, or very few, pulled their weight. Among the batters, Will Young scored 22 off 28 but that’s about it as far as notable contributions go and the Kiwis still need to restart a batting unit that has crashed in Bangladesh.


Bangladesh have now won six of their last seven T20Is against much weakened versions of two of world cricket’s powerhouses. They’ve brought both Australia and New Zealand to their knees under slow, sluggish and spin-friendly home conditions.

Another victory on Sunday would see them seal the series and enable them to experiment in the final two matches.

Another major positive for the Tigers from second T20I was the 59-run opening stand between their new opening pairing of Mohammad Naim and Liton Das, who are probably going to open in the T20 World Cup as well next month.

Granted that their partnership was on the slow side but it’s the best that could have been expected in the conditions at hand.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Batsman Runs – Rahim, Mushfiqur – 1st Innings Over 18.5 @ 1.87

It’s not often that Mushfiqur Rahim fails and falls at the first hurdle on home soil. The right-handed batsman does not have the flash of a superstar a la Shakibal Hasan but he is somewhat of a Mr reliable for the Tigers. It is why it was surprising when he got out on first ball in the second T20I. Therefore, we expect him to respond and even if he does not score a bunch, he should, at the very least, cover the 18.5-run spread. This play can be found on Dafabet.

Tip: Total runs for over 1 in 1st innings – New Zealand – 1st Innings – Over 4.5 @ 1.85

In the last game, the torment of the opening T20I was fresh and it led New Zealand to take a cautious approach, which we had predicted. Now that they have got some runs under their belt, they might want to take the game to Bangladesh and attack – which is their hallmark anyway – rather than adopt a slow and cautious approach. And if the exciting Finn Allen is picked up top, there is every chance for fireworks from get-go. The play here is to back New Zealand to score more than 4.5 runs in the first over of their innings. The bet can be found on Dafatbet.


In case you hadn’t noticed, we’re sitting out predicting winner in this one. However, with a gun to our heads, we’d lean slightly towards the underdogs.
