PAK vs NZ Match Prediction, Pitch Report, Key Players and Fantasy Cricket Tips

 

Pakistan will play against New Zealand in the 19th match of the T20 World Cup, which will take place at Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah. Pakistan concluded their match with India in the best way possible when they defeated them by ten wickets on Sunday. Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Shaheen Afridi starred as Pakistan won over India. That win broke Pakistan's losing streak against India in T20 World Cup history and won their first game in the tournament's history. Pakistan was outstanding in all three departments of the game.

The Pakistanis dismissed India for only six runs in the first three overs of the match due to a scintillating opening bowling performance from Shaheen Shah Afridi. Imad Wasim's performance in the powerplay was also good, with his length allowing pressure from the other end.

Shadab Khan's guile and turn in the middle overs kept India from changing gears. Shadab Khan took 1 for 22 in 4 overs, and Imad gave ten runs in his two overs. Hasan Ali was the only bowler who proved expensive. Haris Rauf's superb bowling in the death overs ensured that India achieved a total of 151 runs. In his four overs, Haris Rauf gave away 25 runs. Shaheen Afridi got three wickets for 31 runs.

Pakistan needed a good start from Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan to chase down their target successfully. The duo took a gamble and went with the flow. After a while, the strikes were rotated consistently, and the ball was sent to the boundary ropes. The team achieved a victory in just 17.5 overs. Babar Azam scored 68 runs off 52 balls, while Rizwan accumulated 79 runs off 55 deliveries.

Pakistan will be facing New Zealand, which will be playing its first game in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. New Zealand is the only team that can outclass Pakistan in Group 2.

They've already won one ICC title this year, and they'd like to win another one. Their top four comprise T20 specialists in the form of Martin Guptill, Devon Conway, and Glenn Phillips. Kane Williamson is arguably one of the best T20 cricket players to anchor innings. The lower-middle order's inconsistency, however, is an issue. Jimmy Neesham and Tim Seifert aren't known for consistently performing well.

New Zealand's bowling attack is one of the most formidable. Their pace attack is so versatile that it can put them in a good position at any time. Tim Southee, Trent Boult, and Lockie Ferguson will share the fast bowling duties. Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi would be the team's main spinners.

The Black Caps have been playing a little bit shaky lately. Kane Williamson's team lost to Australia and England in the warm-ups a few days ago.
