PAK vs NZ – TRI SERIES – Team Previews
On Thursday Pakistan played their class game against Bangladesh after losing the toss to the opposition. The bowlers made full use of the opportunity to bowl first and dominated the opening pair of the opposition. Mohammed Wasim and Nasim Shah partnered to pick the early wickets but failed to break the partnership of the Bangladeshi middle-order. It was later in the game that both bowlers broke the partnership and stopped Bangladesh at a score of 173 in 20 overs.
Before the beginning of the match, every cricket pundit had their own doubts regarding the opening pair of the Pakistani squad, Mohammed Rizwan and Babar Azam. However, both batsmen looked calm and composed and gave good momentum to the team by scoring 101 between them. Babar Azam scored another half-century in 40 balls at a strike rate of 137.50. Mohammed Rizwan continued his master strokes and reached a score of 69 at a strike rate of 123.21.
The final game will be an important fixture for Pakistan because they will enter the ICC T20 World Cup after Friday.
New Zealand has a sudden improvement in their T20 cricket. They are coming for the final game after scoring a huge win against Bangladesh. It was an overall performance by the team where batsmen played some crucial knocks and the bowlers picked up wickets and broke some crucial partnerships.
New Zealand’s batting lineup looks in form. Devon Conway, Finn Allen, and Glenn Philips gave a good space to the team to score a big number. The major concern for the Kiwi squad will be their middle order. Team management will have to do some necessary changes in the lineup to make sure the team wins the final game.
New Zealand’s bowling also looks disciplined and there is no major worry. Team Management is expected to bring back Kane Williamson and Mitchell Santner for the final while Martin Guptill and James Neesham could miss out. The Kiwis might not make any changes to top performers Finn Allen and Devon Conway because of their superb performance.
