NZ vs PAK – ICC T20 World Cup – Team Preview

New Zealand

Nobody could have ever guessed that New Zealand will be leading the Group 1 table and will be the first team to qualify for the semi-finals. This is the 3rd consecutive time Kiwis have qualified for the semi-finals and this team they won’t be willing to lose their semi-final game at any cost. The Blackcaps will be returning to Sydney for their third game of the World Cup.

Kane Williamson and his men have shown a very dominant performance throughout the tournament. The batters have done their job well and the bowlers have won the matches. The good news for the team management is the return of the form of Kane Williamson as he scored 61 runs in 35 balls against Ireland. This will boost his confidence for the Wednesday game.

Tim Southee and Trent Boult will be leading the bowling attack. This will be the third game for the Kiwis and in both games, they scored a win against Australia and Sri Lanka. They will definitely get the benefit of knowing the ground.


Pakistan started their World Cup journey with two consecutive failures against India and Zimbabwe. They struggled to leave their mark and once India lost the game against South Africa, hopes to qualify for the semi-finals were completely dead for Pakistan. South Africa’s loss to the Netherlands was the main reason for Pakistan’s qualification in the semi-finals.

Overall, the team’s middle order is not in good form and has come out as inconsistent. They have not performed well enough and the team doesn’t have a finisher. Babar Azam’s inconsistency has also affected the overall morale of the team and team management will be concerned about the same.

The only effective tool Pakistan has to win in the semi-finals is their bowling attack. After his return from injury, Shaheen Afridi has found his form and is picking up wickets. Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf have also come out as the wicket-takers.
