Watch BD v NZ 3rd T20 highlights today, from Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui (New Zealand) Friday 6th January 2017. From three twenty/20 series first match already won by New Zealand six wickets and 12 balls remaining. Second t20 will be played today, if New Zealand won today’s match then they will win the series so Bangladesh desperately wan today’s win to secure the series and they have not got any victory yet from this tour. In previous match Bangladesh won the toss and batted first. BD scored 141 runs in 20 overs with eight wickets down. Only Mahmudullah batted good from BD team because he scored 52 runs and second number runs scorer was Mosaddek Hossain with 20 runs.
NZ first wicket down at 22, second down at 28 and third down at 46 it means BD bowlers had done good job in first ten overs but after that KS Williamson captain himself took charge and blast his innings with scoring 73 runs off 55 balls and he played till end of the match goes not out. He smashed five 4s and two maximums in his innings. C de Grandhomme helped his team with putting 41 runs on the board with facing 22 balls, three 4s and three 6s were included in his innings.
LH Ferguson took three wickets in first match, BM Wheeler took two and remaining three bowlers took three wickets. NT Broom opener of the NZ team scored only six runs and out then it was 2.3 Oh my! Terrific catch from Shakib. Excellent awareness at the edge of the boundary. Hip-high short ball outside off, Broom clatters a pull in the air off the middle of the bat. Shakib runs to his left from deep square leg, gets into a side-on position, the momentum carries him over the rope. He knows it and thus tosses the ball back into the field of play. He himself then springs back into the field of play and dives forward; sprawling dive to grasp the ball with both hands. That was the only part of the boundary with the rope as opposed to the ad board, and it worked in the favour of Shakib. Great reflexes from him, though 22/1.
Video availability timeout.

In the three Super Smash T20s played at the Bay Oval last month, teams batting first (averaging 142 runs) lost on all three occasions. Traditionally, the pitch here is slow and keeps low. The weather forecast is of a bright sunny day in Mount Maunganui. Bangladesh might similarly be tempted to pick left-arm spinner Taijul Islam or offspinner Shuvagata Hom. Taskin Ahmed could be picked too if they want to rest Mustafizur Rahman or drop Rubel Hossain.
George Worker has been called up and is a like-for-like replacement for the injured Neil Broom. New Zealand could bring back Trent Boult from rest to ensure they have enough in their bowling attack to ensure a series win. Ish Sodhi may also be included in the XI due to the slow nature of the Bay Oval pitch.
