The 13th match of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 between New Zealand Women and Bangladesh Women would be an important one for both sides.
New Zealand Women have to win this game to move up on the points table ahead of Australia to qualify for the semi-finals. For Bangladesh Women which has lost both their games so far this is a must-win match for them.
Bangladesh Women haven’t been in the best of form for more than a year now. They haven’t won a game against a major side which is likely to bring down their confidence levels ahead of this contest. New Zealand would feel confident as the conditions at Melbourne are likely to be in their favour and their fast bowlers would look to exploit the weakness that Bangladesh Women have with their batting at the moment.

It was a heartbreak for Sophie Devine’s side in the last game against India Women where they went down by 3 runs. With two points from their two games, the side needs to win this one to keep their hopes of reaching the semi-finals alive. They have a good side and shall look to exploit the weakness that Bangladesh Women have.
Openers Rachel Priest and Devine have failed to convert their starts. They have been getting out to poor shots in the tournament. In the middle order, the side has good players in Maddy Green, Suzie Bates and Katey Martin. The latter two have done well so far. Amelia Kerr and Hayley Jensen down the order bring the hitting abilities to the table.
Their bowlers have looked good in the two games they have played so far. Rosemary Mair and Lea Tahuhu will look to grab early wickets with the new ball. Devine is bowling tight lines which is a big advantage for the side. Kerr, Leigh Kasperek, Anna Peterson and Jensen complete a good bowling attack for the side.

Salma Khatun’s side is under pressure after the disastrous outing they had against Australia Women in the last game where they lost by 86 runs. With two losses this is a must-win game for the side and they will be up against a very strong outfit.
Their bowlers had a miserable day in the last game and skipper would want them to come up with a better performance in the next one. Murshida Khatun and Shamima Sultana must play well at the top as these players haven’t been able to offer good opening stands in previous games.
Sanjida Islam looks out for form at the moment but Nigar Sultana and Fargana Hoque have done well. Rumana Ahmed and Fahima Khatun will look to do well down the order for the side. It was a poor show in the last game from their bowlers where they conceded 189 runs and managed to pick only one wicket. Salma Khatun and Jahanara Alam must eye early wickets and halt the scoring rate of the Kiwi girls. Nahida Akter, Khadija Tul Kurba and Rumana Ahmed would be expected to offer good support during the middle overs.

It will be slightly overcast skies over Melbourne on February 28 and this might offer some assistance to the bowlers with the new ball. The track will however be one for the batters as they can play their strokes easily. The outfield is very first here and we expect a high scoring game.
The pitch at Junction Oval, Melbourne has been a favorite with batters as the ball comes on to the bat nicely allowing them to play on the up. The average first innings score is 143 runs here. Fast bowlers do well at this venue with the new ball but spinners have a tough time given the smaller size of the boundaries.
The venue is known for big scores and most teams in the past have preferred to bat here and put up big scores on the board. Hence we expect the side winning the toss to bat first which will be against the convention that we have so far seen in the tournament.
In the tournament so far Bangladesh Women have looked completely out of form. Their batting was poor in the first game and bowling was miserable in the last one. They are in a very tough position at the moment.
New Zealand Women, on the other hand, has looked good in most parts and it was a sad loss for them in the last game which they could have won easily. Based on form and pitch conditions New Zealand Women would start favorites in the next game.
