Twenty20 Tri-series | Everything you need to know!
New Zealand, Pakistan, and Bangladesh will prepare for the Twenty20 World Cup to the ultimate test and fine-tune their skills in a week-long tri-series beginning this Friday (October 7). The series is more than just a stepping stone to the World Cup; it also marks the beginning of New Zealand’s home season, which has been dormant for the past two years. The New Zealand and Pakistan cricket teams have arrived in relatively good form since last year’s World Cup, where they respectively reached the final and the semifinal. Meanwhile, the fortunes of Bangladesh have been on the opposite end of the spectrum. All three teams play each other twice, with the top two contesting in the final.
