New Zealand tour of Bangladesh :Bangladesh Vs New Zealand, Only T20I at Sylhet Stadium - Nov 06, 2013
Teams : Bangladesh Vs New Zealand
Venue: Played at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur
Pitch report : Because the game will start at 1.30 pm local time, the Mirpur pitch will be at its best for the batsmen. The Dhaka weather has again been cloudy, though.This is probably the best time for Bangladesh to begin fixing their horrible Twenty20 record. They have lost six of their last seven matches, and went down to teams like Netherlands and Scotland in recent times. A fast improving team in the ODI format, Bangladesh have not yet adapted to the game's shortest version.
New Zealand, on the other hand, are a skilled team in this format and could use it to end their tour of Bangladesh positively, after failing to win a Test and losing the ODIs 0-3. Led by Kyle Mills, they performed a little better in the final one-dayer, scoring 307 for 5 but were let down by the bowlers.
New Zealand are bolstered by Luke Ronchi in the middle order while Corey Anderson, Jimmy Neesham and Grant Elliott will be expected to pull weight as allrounders. Their pace attack has struggled and so has their solitary spinner in Nathan McCullum. The absence of more quality slow bowlers has been a weakness in these conditions.
