Bangladesh tour of New Zealand, 3rd T20I

Bangladesh Cricket: New Zealand sweep T20I series

Bangladesh lost the 3-match T20I series against New Zealand 3-0 after they went down by 27 runs in the third match at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui today.

Earlier, Tigers captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza won the toss and decided to bowl for a second time at the Bay Oval. This was the fourth time on the trot Mashrafe had won the toss and his decision to field was not a surprise considering the strong wind blowing across the ground.

The wicket in the third and final T20 international looks almost the same like the second game that they lost by 47 runs on Friday.

Bangladesh have made one change with Taskin Ahmed coming in place of Mustafizur Rahman. This game will provide Mashrafe one last opportunity to win a game after five successive defeats including a 3-0 whitewash by the Black caps in the ODI series.
