Bangladesh To Host New Zealand For 5 Match T20s in September 2021

Ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup in October, Bangladesh will host New Zealand for a five-match T20 series in September this year, the BCB confirmed on Wednesday (August 4).

The two teams will use the series as part of preparations for the T20 World Cup, which starts later this year in the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

“The New Zealand series will be Bangladesh’s last chance to test themselves and find the best combination for the World Cup in Oman and UAE. England’s September-October tour has been pushed to March 2023, allowing Bangladesh players to have a break and opening the doors for IPL-bound players.” said the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) in a statement.

The T20 series between New Zealand and Bangladesh will start on September 1 and will end just nine days before the resumption of the 2021 IPL in the United Arab Emirates.

Bangladesh is currently hosting Australia for the 5 matches T20 series. The series with New Zealand will be very important for Bangladesh before the T20 world cup event as they are currently in the tenth position in the T20 ranking.
