BAN vs NZ Squads – T20I
Skipper Mahmudullah will lead the team from the front. Experienced Shakib AL Hasan will feature as the premier all-rounder for the team. He will look to score runs in the middle-order and pick up wickets against the tourists. Mushfiqur Rahim returns and will do his regular glovework duties behind the stumps. Top-order batsman Mohammad Mithun has been dropped from the squad. Moreover, Tamim Iqbal is yet to recover from his knee injury. However, the return of seniors and rookies in the form of Rahim, Liton Das, and Aminul Islam will add strength to the bench.
Batsmen in the form of Mushfiqur Rahim along with Shakib Al Hasan and Soumya Sarkar will hold the key with the bat against the quality bowlers of New Zealand. The bowling unit spearheaded by Mustafizur Rahman will maintain the emphatic form showcased against Australia. Spinster Shakib who bagged four wickets against the Aussies in the fifth match will put a stop to the leakage of runs in the middle overs of the innings.
Bangladesh Squad: Mahmudullah (captain), Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das, Musaddek Hossain Saikat, Afif Hossain, Naim Sheikh, Nurul Hasan Sohan, Shamim Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Shaif Uddin, Shoriful Islam, Taijul Islam, Shak Mahedi Hasan, Aminul Islam Biplob, Nasum Ahmed
New Zealand playing XI will be led forward by the 29-year-old Tom Latham. Unfortunately, Kane Williamson, Trent Boult, Kyle Jamieson, and Lockie Ferguson will be missing action due to IPL commitments.
