Rain is forecast for Tuesday, though the weather is expected to clear in the evening. This will be the first T20 played at McLean Park and the first international match after three years. Usually, pace bowlers have had an advantage with the extra bounce and, on occasion, the wind. With Trent Boult rested for the first match, New Zealand could play both Lockie Ferguson and Matt Henry. Henry hasn’t played in the format since January last year.
Like New Zealand, Bangladesh last played a T20 at the World T20 in March and are missing a few players from that squad. Mohammad Mithun and Al-Amin Hossain are not in the touring party while Mushfiqur Rahim is recovering from a hamstring injury. Taskin Ahmed and Imrul Kayes could take the place of Al-Amin and Mithun, while Mosaddek Hossain is likely to play ahead of Shuvagata Hom in the XI.
