Bangladesh Women will try to save face against New Zealand Women in the final game of the three-match series. The visitors have lost both games by large margins and come in with a 37-run deficit. Poor performances with the bat and ball have left them unable to challenge the hosts. They would aim for a better performance in the series’ final game.
Bangladesh Women have historically struggled in these conditions, and their batters are unable to cope with the extra bounce on the wickets. They have scored 150 runs in two games, highlighting their lack of batting form. The Kiwis will be confident going into the game and will be aiming for a 3-0 series win.
The 3rd T20I between New Zealand Women vs Bangladesh Women will take place on December 7th, 2022 at John Davies Oval, Queenstown.

New Zealand Women vs Bangladesh Women Pitch Report
Queenstown’s John Davies Oval is an excellent batting venue. As the pitch has flattened and the outfield has gotten faster in recent years, we’ve seen a number of high-scoring games. Fast bowlers have done well at the venue, and spinners have also had success.
On December 7, the skies over Queenstown will be cloudy. Batting conditions are expected to be favorable, with the ball landing nicely on the bat. Bowlers must pitch in the proper areas to apply pressure to batters. In these conditions, the team batting first would aim for a total of 140 runs.
