Bangladesh's T20I series' against Australia and New Zealand have witnessed low totals on slow and low Mirpur pitches

New Zealand pacer Mitchell McClenaghan has raised questions whether Bangladesh cricket can benefit long term playing on slow and low wickets at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium where the Kiwis were all out for 93 runs in the fourth T20I against the Tigers Wednesday.

Bangladesh won the fourth match by six wickets with five balls to spare to take a 3-1 lead in the five-T20I series.

McClenaghan tweeted, "I understand home advantage but trying to figure out how conditions like these make @BCBtigers a better side long term?"

Left arm fast bowler McClenaghan has played 48 ODIs and 29 T20Is so far.

New Zealand were also dismissed for just 60 (joint lowest in their T20I history) in the first match of the series.

Bangladesh scored 141 in the second game, which the Kiwis failed to chase down, falling just four short.

The third game saw the home team collapse as Bangladesh were bundled out for 76 while chasing 129.

Prior to this series, Bangladesh-Australia series also witnessed low-scoring encounters in every match of the five-T20I series in Mirpur where Australia were skittled out for 62 (their lowest total) in the fifth game.

The highest team total in that series was 131, scored by Bangladesh in the first match of that series.
