Bangladesh has a chance to win the series for the first time in New Zealand. The Tigers will play the second T20 today. Shanta aims to fulfill dreams in team performance. Assistant coach Nick Pothus believes in the ability of the students. The match starts at Bay Oval in Mount Manganui at 12:00 PM Bangladesh time.
History has been made by killing two kiwis in Napier. The most successful mission down under, Team Tigers is now looking to win the trophy. Aiming to secure the series by keeping the continuity of the first T20.
Bangladesh assistant coach Nick Pothus said, ‘We won by 5 wickets. A 5 wicket win is a big win in T20. If these boys continue to play for the next 2-3 years, they will show what they can do.’
There are fond memories at Mt Manganui. The historic Test win at the Bay Oval is an added motivation for Bangladesh. Shantar’s team wants to celebrate defeating the Kiwis once again in a team performance.
Nick Pothus said, “Golden opportunity to win the series against one of the best teams in the world.” Boys should come down with the same enthusiasm as before. The future is out of control. So we are thinking about the present. Definitely want to get the best results. But let’s not forget they are one of the best teams in the world. We are enjoying this challenge.
New Zealand is on the backfoot after losing the first match. The hosts do not want to repeat the mistake that happened in Napier.
New Zealand’s all-rounder Jimmy Neesham said, we lost momentum. Bangladesh won by playing well. The conditions also helped them. No mistakes should be made in the second match. Be careful and fight.
Bangladesh can break the winning combination. Afif’s failure, Miraj can return to the XI. And instead of Tanzim Shakib, Hasan Mahmood can get a chance.
