Match Preview

The Kiwis come into this series on the back of an astounding series win against world champions West Indies. Despite the Kiwis resting Kane Williamson and Trent Boult, the likes of Glenn Phillips and Mitchell Santner were unstoppable.

Now, their preparations for the next T20 World Cup continue. A few new additions have been made to the Kiwi roster again with Blair Tickner and Jacob Duffy likely to feature in the bowling attack. New Zealand also boast of a solid batting unit which will give them confidence ahead of this game.

Their opponents, Pakistan, have endured a tough time in New Zealand so far, and they are yet to play a single game against the hosts. The biggest concern would be the absence of Babar Azam, who has been ruled out of the T20I series. But this opens up an opportunity for Haider Ali and Mohammad Rizwan, who could be vital against the New Zealand bowling attack.

Speaking of bowling attacks, Pakistan’s pace trio of Wahab Riaz, Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf would be key to their fortunes on pitches that should suit them throughout the series.

While both teams have a good mix of youth and experience in their ranks, New Zealand will start as favourites. However, you never know with the Pakistanis, given their ability to spring a surprise in this format. All in all, an entertaining game of cricket beckons at the Eden Park, with both teams looking to strike the first blow in this series.

NZ vs PAK Live Score Dream11 Top picks

  • Martin Guptill – Martin Guptill is the most experienced player in this New Zealand team. He’s one of most destructive batsmen in T-20s and with New Zealand missing their big guns, he’ll have a big role to play.
  • Glen Phillips – Glen Phillip is pretty inexperienced but he showed terrific skills in the recent series against West Indies. He can be backed to continue his good run.
  • Jimmy Neesham – Jimmy Neesham all round skills will be very handy for New Zealand against Pakistan.
  • Mohammed Hafeez – Mohammed Hafeez has been around for decades. His experience of playing in New Zeakand will be very useful for Pakistan. He’ll have to play a big role if Pakistan have to challenge New Zealand.
  • Mohammed Rizwan – The wicketkeeper batsmen was brilliant in their last series against Zimbabwe. He can be backed to perform well in New Zealand.
  • Shadab Khan – He’s a very handy cricketer. He can get runs with the bat and is a brilliant leg spinner. He’ll be very difficult to handle for New Zealand
