Bangladesh women vs New Zealand Women Match Preview
New Zealand Women (NZ-W) and Bangladesh Women (BAN-W) have both suffered defeats in their opening two matches of the Women’s T20 World Cup. They will face each other on February 17 at the Newlands Stadium in Cape Town, with both teams desperate to make a comeback and avoid elimination from the tournament.
The Sophie Devine-led NZ-W team lost to Australia by 97 runs and to South Africa by 65 runs in their first two matches. In particular, their batting unit struggled against South Africa, with only three players scoring in double digits. Their bowling performance also left room for improvement, with Eden Carson and Lea Tahuhu taking two wickets each.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh faced a heavy defeat at the hands of Australia in their previous match. Despite an impressive knock of 57 off 50 deliveries from skipper Nigar Sultana, their overall batting performance was lackluster, as they posted only 107 runs in 20 overs. While youngster Marufa Akter impressed with her bowling, the rest of the team failed to make an impact.
With both teams in a precarious position in the points table, they will need to be cautious in their approach and aim for a win to stay in the running for the tournament.
