A five-match T20I series between Bangladesh and New Zealand will take place from September 1 to 10 at the Shere Bangla Stadium in Dhaka, Bangladesh. As part of the preparation for the ICC Men's T20 World Cup in 2021, the matches will serve as a warm-up. Initially, it was a 3 matches Twenty-20 series but later in May 2021, two more games were included. In August 2021, the tour's timetable was announced. As a result of Kane Williamson playing in the delayed sequence of the 2021 Indian Premier League, Tom Latham will be the captain of the NZ side. There will be a number of first-time team players. Trent Boult, Kyle Jamieson, and Lockie Ferguson, who will not be able to participate due to their engagement in the Indian Premier League, which coincides with a portion of the tour.
Between March 20 to April 1, Bangladesh had a dismal campaign in New Zealand. It was a 3-0 win for New Zealand in the one-day series as well as in the T20 international series. This series is going to be Bangladesh's final opportunity to prove themselves and select the ideal combination for the World Cup in Oman and UAE. There would be a rest for Bangladeshi players during England's September-October visit, allowing them to prepare for the Indian Premier League in March 2023. In 2013, New Zealand had a disappointing visit where New Zealand drew Tests in Chattogram and Dhaka, lost ODIs 0-3, and won just one Twenty20 match against Bangladesh. After that, Bangladesh visited three times New Zealand but they have not won a single game. Three trips to New Zealand later, and Bangladesh hasn't won a single game. Recently, the Bangladesh side suffered 3-0 clean sweeps in both one-day and twenty-over matches, as their quest for success continued to wane.
For the T20I series, the New Zealand cricket squad will head to Bangladesh on August 23. On August 29, they'll play a warm-up game. The first T20I match will be played on 1 September and the other 4 matches are scheduled at 3, 5, 8, 10 Sep. As the Black Caps showed in England previously this year, New Zealand's game has a lot of variety to it. Undoubtedly, New Zealand's visit will be heavily examined for its participation of several young players with a rising home reputation. In addition to Rachin Ravindra, Finn Allen, a 22-year-old player, has been selected for the T20I tour of Bangladesh and the ODIs against Pakistan. Currently, New Zealand is at the number 3 position in the ICC T20I ranking while Bangladesh is sitting in the 10th position. This series will be a good chance for both of the team to prepare themselves for the upcoming T20I World Cup 2021.
