Bangladesh vs New Zealand Tips
The low scoring continued in the 4th T20I and it will be no different this time around. Batsmen are struggling to get big runs so I’m backing no batsmen to score 50+ runs in this match.

Head to Head
New Zealand have won six of their last nine T20I matches against Bangladesh. Bangladesh won the 4th T20 of this series by six wickets in Dhaka. The hosts now lead 3-1 with one match to play.
Bangladesh have won seven of their last nine T20I matches. They bounced back from the defeat in the 3rd T20 against New Zealand to now hold an unassailable 3-1 lead.
Mustafizur Rahman took 4-12 in 3.3 overs to restrict New Zealand to 93 runs after the visitors elected to bat first. On a very difficult pitch, that total was not big but it certainly was competitive.
A solid 43 runs by Mahmudullah was enough to steer The Tigers to a six wicket victory in Dhaka. The entire match only saw the ball reach the boundary 15 times (10 fours, 5 sixes).
Bangladesh Team News
Bangladesh will pick a very similar lineup as they look to win 4-1 for the second consecutive home series.
New Zealand Form
New Zealand pulled of a surprise victory in the 3rd T20 after losing the opening two matches. That kept the series alive, but the Black Caps needed to win the fourth match to take it to a decider.
It was not to be as Will Young top scored with 46 runs for New Zealand. The Black Caps posted 93 runs but their bowlers fought manfully to defend it. Ajaz Patel was again the best bowlers for the tourists, taking 2-9 in four overs.
Bangladesh however got home with five balls to spare in the innings. This final match may be a dead rubber but New Zealand sure will take some confidence away if they can get the win.
New Zealand Team News
There is not much more New Zealand can do. This has been a good experience for the young side so I expect them to field the same side to close out the series.
