Bangladesh vs New Zealand 2021 groups
Bangladesh achieved a 4-1 victory in the T20 series against Australia in their last international assignment. They would be confident at the moment and would be desperate to tackle New Zealand in the next five T20 matches.
Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das, who missed out on Australia in the last series, are back in the squad. On top of that, Aminul Islam was also added to the 19-man squad. The inclusion of the trio will further strengthen the team from Bangladesh.
While Rahim and Das would strengthen the middle order of Bangladesh, which looked rusty in the T20 series against Australia, Islam will support Shakib, Mahedi Hasan and Nasum Ahmed in the spin division. Muztafizur Rahman will once again take the lead over the tempo bowling division, which consists of the likes of Rubel Hossain and Taskin Ahmed.
Mahmudullah (Capt), Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das, Mosaddek Hossain, Afif Hossain, Mohammad Naim, Nurul Hasan, Shamim Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Mohammin Mahifan Saifudd Islam, Nasum Ahmed
New Zealand, on the other hand, has taken on a new look. Tom Latham was offered the captaincy in the absence of Kane Williamson.

Henry Nicholls, Tom Blundell, Colin de Grandhomme and Ajaz Patel bear the most responsibility in the series. New Zealand’s opening, Vind Allen, which was part of the series, tested positive for Covid-19. Matt Henry was called up to the team as Finn’s replacement.
The last T20 series that New Zealand played was also against Bangladesh. New Zealand won the series 3-0.
