New Zealand vs Bangladesh Betting Tips

Teams Status

New Zealand has been exceptional in this home series against Bangladesh and are looking like a strong title contender for the upcoming T20I World Cup in India. Just before the Bangladesh series, they played a five-match T20I series against Australia at home. They won the series by a 3-2 margin. This series against Bangladesh was nothing less than that. They won the first two matches quite comfortably. In the first match, New Zealand put a massive total of 210 on the board, courtesy of a brilliant 92 from Devon Conway. He had a 105 run partnership with Will Young. Ish Sodhi was exceptional with the ball as he bagged a fore-fer for just 28 runs in his quota of four overs. The second match was a rain-hit game as New Zealand scored 173 runs in just 17.5 overs courtesy of some superb hitting by their keeper-batsman Glenn Philips and Daryl Mitchell. Adam Milne, Tim Southee and Hamish Bennett chipped in with two wickets each and managed to restrict Bangladesh for just 142 runs.

Bangladesh on the other hand were exceptional against the series against struggling Zimbabwe. They have lost two of the last three series that they played away from home. They lost to India in a three-match series which ended 2-1. Then they went on to lose the three-match series 2-0 against Pakistan. Finally, they swept Zimbabwe in a three-match series. The only positives for Bangladesh from the first T20I was their debutant Nasum Ahmed, who picked two of the three wickets that New Zealand lost. Afif Hossain showed some reluctance from the bat, but couldn’t take them over the line. In the second match, Mahedi Hasan was the pick of the bowlers but was very expensive as he conceded at an economy over 11. Nasum Ahmed was again very impressive as he was very economical. Mohammad Naim and Soumya Sarkar had a brilliant 81 run stand for the second wicket but no other player contributed in this run chase as they fell short by 28 runs.

Tipster’s Angel

New Zealand are playing some way more dominating cricket than Bangladesh at this point in time and are more likely to sweep the series. Similar to the ODI series and the first two T20I’s, this is also expected to be a one-sided contest despite New Zealand resting thor top players.

Tip: New Zealand Fall of 1st Wicket – Over 26.5 @ 1.83

Despite a poor outing in the first T20I, Finn Allen bounced back with a quick-fired 17 runs of just ten balls. He stitched an opening partnership of 36 runs along with Martin Guptill. In the last six matches, the opening stand for New Zealand was 204 runs at an average of 34.00. In the last six head-to-head matches against Bangladesh, the opening partnership was 191 runs at an average of 31.83. Finn Allen has played 15 T20 matches in his career and has scored 554 runs at an average of 42.61. He has hit six half-centuries including the highest score of 92*. He would like the RCB coaching staff as this will be the last T20 innings before the IPL. Martin Guptill on the other hand has been exceptional at the top as he has scored as many as 2895 runs in 101 matches at an average of 32.16. By considering the capabilities and the firepower that these two possess, it is very likely that they will score more than  26.5 runs for the opening stand at 1.83 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.

Tip: Devon Conway Total Runs Over 27.5 @ 1.87

Devon Conway is the leading run-scorer in this series with 107 runs in two matches at an average of 107.00. He has played just 13 T20I matches for New Zealand and has scored 473 runs at an average of 59.16. He has hit four half-centuries including the highest score of 99* against Australia in Christchurch. In the 11 innings that he batted, he has scored north of 27 runs in seven of those matches. He scored 192 runs in the previous series against Australia at an average of 48.00. Also, he had crossed the 27 run mark in three of the five innings that he played against them. He has played five innings while batting at number three and has scored 218 runs at an average of 72.66. And also, has crossed the 27 run mark in three of the five innings that he batted in the third position. With the firepower that Devon Conway possesses and the form that he is in, he is more likely to score over 27.5 runs at 1.87 odds available at the Dafabet sportsbook.


After winning the series, New Zealand will look to get the backup ready for the World Cup. Bangladesh will play this match for pride as they lost all the matches so far in this tour. Despite New Zealand playing a second-string team, they are more likely to win the match quite comfortably and seal the series.
