New Zealand will be looking to clinch the series as they take on Bangladesh in the 2nd T20I at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui on Friday. Kiwis won the opening T20I comprehensively by six wickets and lead the series 1-0. There is bad news though for fans looking to catch the action in India. No Indian channel will telecast the match live, and there will be no live streaming available as well. However, for Bangladesh viewers, Channel 9 will telecast the NZ vs. BAN 2nd T20 live. You can find the official live streaming provided by Channel 9 here. Global users can access the live streaming from here. However, it is a third party website, not the official one, claiming to provide streaming which is ‘freely available all over the internet’. The link also works for Indian users.

Unlike the first T20I, the second T20I won’t be a day-night encounter. It will be the second-ever T20I at the venue. The match starts at 3:00 PM local time and 07:30 AM as per IST. While Kiwis will be eyeing to take the unbeaten lead, Tigers will be looking to stay alive in the series.
It was Kane Williamson’s superb batting that helped New Zealand win the opening T20I. The Kiwi skipper scored unbeaten 73 as New Zealand reached the target of 142 with two overs to spare. All-rounder Colin de Grandhomme played a crucial part in Kiwis’ win as he scored quickfire 41. The Williamson and Grandhomme unbeaten and the match-winning stand was worth 81.

Despite the win, New Zealand could make couple of changes to the playing XI that last featured. Neil Broom is out due to injury as Geroge Worker takes his place. Another change on the cards is Trent Boult. The pacer after being rested for third One-Day International and first T20I is back in the squad.
