AUCKLAND – New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has said he expects a tough game against Pakistan and Bangladesh as the three squads are set to lock horns in the tri-nation series later this week.

Ahead of the series, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson said “It's great to have that tournament against two very good sides and that of Pakistan and Bangladesh…It's nice to get some sort of volume of T20 cricket and before that tournament and obviously, we'll play that and then go over to Australia and there's some warm-up games and things, so that will be helpful as well”.

The host’s skipper mentioned that getting an opportunity to face two good T20 teams, Pakistan and Bangladesh, will be beneficial to play competitive cricket before the World Cup.
