Venue – Pallekele International Cricket Stadium
Today in the 5th match of T20 World Cup 2012, Bangladesh will take on New Zealand at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium. Both these teams are known for creating upsets in ICC events and today if Bangladesh stuns New Zealand it won’t be surprising.
New Zealand will be missing Daniel Vettori and pacer Tim Southee due to gastroenteritis, this will be a perfect opportunity for Bangladesh to create some pressure on them. But they need to be careful as New Zealand still have Ross Taylor, Brendon McCullum and Jacob Oram.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, is the team which on its day can do wonders. Every member of the team can stand up for the occasion but fans will be hoping to see Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan and skipper Mushfiqur Rahim to perform today.
