Both New Zealand Women (NZ-W) and Bangladesh Women (BAN-W) have lost their opening two matches of the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup and thus, will be gunning to make a comeback when they take on each other on February 17 at the Newlands Stadium in Cape Town. Now, given their condition in the points table, they can’t afford to lose again and thus, they need to be cautious in their approach in order to win and remain alive in the race.

Now, when it comes to the Sophie Devine-led side, they lost to Australia by 97 runs and to South Africa by 65 runs in their first two matches. Against the Proteas, their batting unit completely misfired as they were skittled for only 67 runs. Only three of their players managed to score in double digits and that remains to be a massive concern. When it comes to bowling, they weren’t impressive either. Eden Carson and Lea Tahuhu picked up two each but overall, there’s room for improvement.

Coming to Bangladesh, they faced the wrath of Australia in the previous match. Batting first, they could post only 107 runs in 20 overs. Skipper Nigar Sultana was impressive with her 57 off 50 deliveries but the strike rate needs to improve immediately. When it comes to bowling, youngster Marufa Akter looked impressive but others failed to make an impact.
