The hosts New Zealand have granted ‘family time’ to several A-listers on their way to the IPL. but appear none the weaker for it as they look to round off another dominant summer of cricket.
Still they do have some exciting talent at their disposal in form of Super Smash top-scorer Finn Allen with recent centurions Devon Conway and Daryl Mitchell and re-integrate the likes of Lockie Ferguson and Adam Milne as they narrow down the best 15 for the T20 World Cup in India. New Zealand is also in top form with series victory over the West Indies, Pakistan and most recently in Australia.
NZ vs BAN 4th T20 – Can Bangladesh Fight? Bangladesh will take heart from the fact that a shorter format also narrows the gap between two seemingly disparate sides. Mahmudullah’s 76 from the middle-order on Friday could be their way out of this batting rut, for it offers a little more cushion at the top for the likes of Liton Das to reprise his chart-topping feat from the Bangabandhu T20 Cup late last year. Soumya Sarkar, one hopes too, has a more defined diktat than the constantly-changing expectations of him in the 50-over side.
