The nightmare for Bangladesh will soon be over as they take on New Zealand in the final game of their unsuccessful tour. New Zealand lead the T20 series 2-0 and are fully expected to claim another series whitewash.
New Zealand v Bangladesh 3rd T20 Betting Tips & Predictions: Match Winner
New Zealand secured a 28-run victory over Bangladesh in their second T20 encounter to clinch the series with one game still to play. The hosts were put into bat, and they went on to post 173-5 from 17.5 overs before their innings came to an end because of rain. Glenn Phillips was stranded on 58 not out alongside Daryl Mitchell (34 not out). Bangladesh eventually started their innings after the rain break without knowing the revised total they needed to win. The game was then stopped after 1.3 overs with Bangladesh 12-0 and match referee Jeff Crowe calculated the new total. The new target was 170 off 16 overs, and despite 51 from Soumya Sarkar and 38 from Mohammad Naim, they still fell short. This was the closest Bangladesh came to winning a game in the T20 series, and I can’t see New Zealand allowing it to get that close again. I am backing the hosts to win this one quite convincingly.
New Zealand v Bangladesh 3rd T20 Betting Tips & Predictions: New Zealand Top Scorer
Glenn Phillips was the top scorer for New Zealand as they secured the series in Napier. He smashed 58 from 31 balls with five fours and two sixes. I expect him to again be in the runs, but I am backing Devon Conway to be the top scorer. Conway, who has scored 107 runs in two matches, missed out in Napier as he was removed for 15. I am expecting him to make amends on Thursday by smashing the ball to all sides of the boundary.
