Match Details

The 13th match of ICC Women’s T20 World Cup will be played between New Zealand and Bangladesh at the Junction Oval in Melbourne.

The match starts at 11:00 AM local time (12:00 AM GMT) (05:30 AM IST). This match will be live on Star Sports 1/2. Live Streaming will be available on Hotstar.

Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

Bangladesh Women have not won a single game in World Cup 2020 as they suffered back to back defeats against India and Australia. They have also been knocked out from the tournament and will now look to play freely. In batting, Nigar Sultana has shown some resistance, who is the leading run-scorer for her side. Meanwhile, Murshida Khatun and Fargana Hoque will be the other batter in focus. On the other hand, Salma Khatun and Panna Ghosh will be the main bowlers for Bangladesh.

New Zealand suffered a defeat in their previous game against India and are currently on the third position in their group. It is an important game from the White Ferns’ perspective in order to keep their hopes alive to qualify into the semi-finals. They have struggled a bit due to lack of consistency in the batting line up that they will have to rectify ahead of the match against Bangladesh. If they manage to do so then their chances of winning the crucial game will be quite high.

Weather Condition/Report

The weather forecast says that the chances of rain are slim and the players are expected to get a cool atmosphere on the match day. The wind will be blowing at a rate of 11 to 22 km/hr whereas the temperature will deviate between 14 and 23 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.


Pitch Condition/Report

The track at Junction Oval is expected to offer a tough fight between bat and ball. The bowlers will get some help during the early phase of the game. But, later on, the batters will have their say, who can easily smack the bowlers all across the park. There is no doubt that the wrist spinners will certainly play a major role in the outcome of the match. The side winning the toss will look to field to be on the safer side.

Average first innings score: 143 [In the last 5 women’s T20Is played at the venue]
