BAN vs NZ: The third match of the five-match T20I series between Bangladesh and New Zealand is set to be played on Sunday, September 5 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.
The Black Caps are now in a must-win situation as hosts have already taken a 2-0 lead in the series after registering victory in the 2nd T20 by 4 runs. Losing this match will cost them this series as Bangladesh will take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series and even if New Zealand manages to win the remaining two games they will not have anything left to celebrate.
Talking about the match, chasing 142 for victory, New Zealand came near to the target thanks to captain Latham’s unbeaten 65 but his efforts went in vain as the team ended up with 137 for 5 in 20 overs.
Here are the match details, pitch report, probable playing 11, squads, player records/stats and dream11 fantasy team predictions for 3rd T20I of Bangladesh vs New Zealand T20I, 2021.

The pitch at Shere Bangla Stadium is on the slower side where spinners will play a major role right throughout the match. The ball is holding a bit onto the surface, which is giving the batters a hard time in the middle. Playing straight and rotating the strike rate will be crucial on this surface.
