Live Scores and Stats - New Zealand and Bangladesh 3rd T20I
Early on in the 2nd T20I, some of the most dangerous New Zealand players were back in the hut, with Martin Guptill and Devon Conway managing 21 and 15 respectively.
After the Kiwis were tottering at 111/5, the Bangladesh bowlers hit a roadblock in Glenn Phillips who was brilliant on the day and remained unbeaten on 58 off 31 deliveries. He struck 5 fours and 2 sixes while batting at a strike rate 187.10.
He got the company of batting all-rounder Daryl Mitchell who blasted an unbeaten 34 off just 16 balls, with the help of 6 fours.
With rain cutting short the New Zealand innings, there was a lot of confusion around Bangladesh's revised DLS target, even after their innings begun.
One has seen a lot of things in international cricket but this pushed the envelope even further. How is a team supposed to plan towards victory if it is not aware of the target at the first place! As Bangladesh coach Russell Domingo said, most have never witnessed a game prior to this where the players don't know the target, of all things.
That aside, what Bangladesh need to focus on is breaking their 31-match losing streak in New Zealand. With the series already gone, there will be a lot of pride to play for the visitors.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
New Zealand - Martin Guptill, Finn Allen, Devon Conway (wk), Will Young, Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapma, Daryl Mitchell, Tim Southee (c), Ish Sodhi, Adam Milne/Lockie Ferguson, Hamish Bennett
Bangladesh - Liton Das (wk), Mohammad Naim, Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah (c), Afif Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mahedi Hasan, Nasum Ahmed, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam
