Bangladesh have never won a T20I contest against the Black Caps in T20I history. The Tigers have a big task to shrug off their losing streak in the shortest format of the game against the Kiwis.

New Zealand last toured Bangladesh in 2013, when they drew Tests in Chattogram and Dhaka, and lost the ODIs 0-3, before winning the one-off T20I. Since then, the Tigers have made three tours to New Zealand.

Their recent clash came during March-April in 2021, where the visitors- Bangladesh were whitewashed in the 3 ODIs and as likely T20Is by the Kiwis.
