It is the final of the New Zealand T20I Tri-Series 2022 and hosts New Zealand would be up against Pakistan. Both sides have been on equal footing in this tournament, winning three of their four games. They shared the honors in the two games played between them. It is their last game before the World Cup, and they would like to win it and get into the tournament with their confidence high.
New Zealand comes into this game with three consecutive wins and momentum on their side. They know the conditions well, which will also work in their favor. Pakistan's bowlers have struggled in this tournament, and this would worry the side. Neither side would want to lose this game ahead of the big tournament, and we expect to see a good show here.
Kane Williamson's side comes here with three consecutive wins, and they would be confident. They defeated Bangladesh by 48 runs in their last game. Batsmen have looked in good form, and Williamson would like to carry this momentum forward. A win in this game would put the side in a positive frame of mind before they travel to Australia for the World Cup.
Finn Allen and Devon Conway have batted well at the top, and the pair shall look to provide the side with a good start. The middle order is strong for the side, and the trio of Kane Williamson, Martin Guptill, and Glenn Phillips shall aim to add quick runs during the game. They have depth in their batting, with James Neesham and Michael Bracewell to follow, and both of them can add quick runs.
Trent Boult and Tim Southee would enjoy the conditions in this game, and the pair shall look to strike blows with the new ball. Michael Bracewell has done well in the tournament, making him confident. Ish Sodhi and Adam Milne must bowl good lines as the Pakistanis have a formidable batting line-up.

Babar Azam shall be happy with the form of his players. They have done well in the tournament, winning three of their four games. Their batting line-up has done well, and the side comes here with a 7-wicket win against Pakistan, where they chased a big score. Azam shall look to use this momentum and win the tournament. It will put them in the right frame of mind ahead of the T20 World Cup.
Openers Babar and Mohammad Rizwan have made runs, and the side would expect to see a good start in this game. Mohammad Nawaz shall look to do well in the middle order and add to the score along with Haider Ali and Asif Ali. Shan Masood, Shadab Khan, and Iftikhar Ahmed are good stroke players, and they will look to use the long handle in the final overs of the innings.
Mohammad Hasnain and Naseem Shah shall aim to strike early in this game as the Kiwis have a strong batting line-up. Mohammad Wasim Jr has been slightly expensive, and he will have to bowl tight lines in the middle overs. Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, and Iftikhar Ahmed will have to be at their best, as these conditions don't support their bowling style.

The skies would over Christchurch shall be cloudy on October 14. We have seen excellent batting conditions in the tournament, and batsmen will likely enjoy a great time on this track. The ball has come onto the bat nicely, and the side batting first would need 170 runs on board to defend it.
Hagley Oval, Christchurch, is one of the best batting surfaces in New Zealand. The wicket is flat, and the outfield is fast at this venue. We have seen big scores as batsmen can play their strokes easily. Fast bowlers do get the ball to move. It is a challenging wicket for the spinners as they can't turn the ball.
Four have been won by sides chasing scores in the six games played. It is a small ground and defending totals has never been easy at this venue. The wicket has been flat and good for batting. The side winning the toss shall look to bowl first and restrict the opponents to a small total.
Pakistan has done well in the tournament, and their batsmen look in good form. However, the side would be slightly worried about the form of their bowlers as there isn’t much room for error on this wicket. New Zealand has momentum on their side and has their batsmen in good form. It will put them slightly ahead of the Pakistanis in this game.
New Zealand to win!
