nz vs pak Match Prediction & Analysis

The Unconquerable World refers to place which can be breached easily and it is almost impossible to defeat the kingdom there. New Zealand in cricket is slowly becoming an unconquerable force in their home conditions in all three formats of the game. They are unperturbed by the missing players with every incoming player taking up the responsibility and giving superb performances. Pakistan on the other hand are caught up in the twirls of the Kiwi Storm and they need to get their best performances to get out of it with a victory. Both teams will look to give their best performance in this match despite the series being sealed in the last match itself.

Tim Southee exploited the swing on offer in the early and took 3 wickets inside the power play overs. James Neesham and Ish Sodhi chipped in with a wicket each in the match. We expect Todd Astle and Daryl Mitchell to get a chance in this playing XI in this match to prove their credentials going ahead.

Pakistan Preview

Pakistan top order suffered a collapse for the second time in two matches. Mohammed Hafeez waged a lone battle with the bat finishing with 99 runs off 57 balls in the match. Rest of the batting unit scored 61 runs off 63 balls to end up with just 163 runs on board. Iftikhar Ahmed might replace Shafique who was dismissed for duck twice in two matches.

Pakistan bowlers took only one wicket while the Kiwi duo finishing the match with unbeaten 130-run partnership to win by 9 wickets. Fahreen Ashraf picked up the lone wicket. Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf were taken for a runs at nearly 10 RPO. Shadab Khan and Imad Wasim are yet to pick a wicket in this series so far.

Top players to bet on:

Mohammed Hafeez – Hafeez has been the best batsmen for their team this year in T20Is and he lit up the Pakistan innings with 99 runs off just 57 balls. He smashed 10 boundaries and 5 sixes in his innings.

Fahreem Ashraf – Ashraf has decent figures of 3-0-18-0 & 3.2-0-19-1 in the two matches and we expect him to continue his good form with the ball.

Pakistan Predicted Playing XI:

Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Ifthikar Ahmed, Haider Ali, Mohammad Hafeez, Shadab Khan (c), Khushdil Shah, Usman Qadir, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammed Hasnain, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf

Weather Conditions

Napier has a bright and sunny weather with clear skies and no rain forecast. We expect a full match with no external weather interruptions.

Venue Details

McLean Park is one the flattest wickets in New Zealand and batsmen are expected to take full toll on the bowlers at this venue. We can expect scores around 180-200 runs at this venue.  England scored 241 runs in the last T20I match played here.  

Toss: To Bat

The pitch is expected to slow down as the math progresses and batsmen will find it little difficult to time the ball in the second innings. We expect both captains to bat first if they win the toss.

NZ vs PAK Winning Prediction

New Zealand has been a dominant force in their home conditions and visiting teams have found it tough to beat them at their backyard. They look invincible at the moment and will look to continue the unbeaten streak at the home soil. Pakistan like every other sub-continental team has found it tough to play against the swinging ball in New Zealand. We expect Kiwis to take full toll of the Pakistani players and win this match to clinch the series 3-0.

New Zealand will win the match & whitewash Pakistan 3-0
