Bangladesh National Cricket team will face New Zealand National Cricket team in the 2nd Twenty20 International match at Mount Maunganui in New Zealand today. The match begins at 8.00 am BST (Bangladesh Standard Time).
Earlier, the touring Bangladesh lost to New Zealand by six wickets in the first Twenty20  International match at Napier in New Zealand on January 3.
