The host are playing with an unchanged team once again.

“I think we have a good combination, but it is important to read the pitches on the day and adapting your game according to the surface,” Ashwell Prince, Bangladesh’s batting coach, told newspersons Tuesday after a training session at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.

“There were good run chases against Zimbabwe and Australia. You need to have a combination of batsmen in the team. You have guys who can rotate the strike, can hit boundaries, and then you have a group of guys at the end of the innings, who can chase 9-10 runs in an over when necessary and pitches are conducive,” Prince added.

Bangladesh won the first two matches by seven wickets and four runs respectively, while New Zealand secured a 52-run win in the third game.

The hosts will be looking to seal the series while the visitors will be playing to level the series in a bid to turn the last match a series decider.
