The bilateral series will be played from December 4 to December 18, starting with three T20Is and then followed by as many ODIs. This will be the White Ferns’ first home series under the new coach Ben Sawyer, who was previously associated with the Australian women’s cricket team as their fast-bowling coach.

The six matches will be played across six different venues, namely, Hagley Oval in Christchurch, the University of Otago Oval in Dunedin, John Davies Oval in Queenstown, Cello Basin Reserve in Wellington, McLean Park in Napier and Seddon Park in Hamilton.

The two teams have just played a solitary ODI against each other. The match was played as a part of the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 in New Zealand. Similarly, they have played just the one T20I against each other which was during the 2020 ICC Women’s World T20 in Australia.

This series will be the first bilateral series between New Zealand and Bangladesh.
