PAK vs NZ Dream11 Team Prediction | Playing 11 | T20 World Cup 2021

Pakistan and New Zealand will play in the 19th match of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. We will cover PAK vs NZ Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

Pakistan:

Pakistan made a brilliant start to the tournament by winning the first match against India by ten wickets. They are currently at the top of Group 2 in the ICC World Cup points table.

The opening pair, Rizwan and Babar, are in exceptional form as they scored 79* and 68* runs, respectively, and finished the match for the team. They have good middle-order batsmen like Fakhar Zaman, Mohammed Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, and Asif Ali, tested in the upcoming matches.

The bowling unit just rattled the opposition with their performance. Shaheen Afridi’s performance was top-notch as he picked up three wickets, and Hasan Ali got two. Shadab and Haris Rauf picked up one wicket each.

Pakistan has the momentum they wanted and would be looking forward to winning their next match against New Zealand.

New Zealand:

New Zealand is a brilliant team but has been unlucky in the shorter format as they have reached the semi-finals twice but failed to qualify for the Finals. They are currently at the 4th position on the ICC T20I rankings.

Martin Guptill and Tim Seifert are likely to open the innings for NZ in the ICC T20 World Cup. At No.3, Devon Conway will handle the proceeding. Skipper Williamson, Glenn Phillips, and Jimmy Neesham will play a crucial role in the middle-order, and Daryl Mitchell also has a chance.

The bowling department consists of great bowlers like Tim Southee, Trent Boult, and Lockie Ferguson with spinners like Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi. New Zealand has a strong team and would want to achieve something big in the T20I format.

PAK vs NZ Pitch Report

Average first innings score: 124

Average total score: 122

(The average score is based on 5 matches played here at this venue)

The pitch behaved slowly in many matches, but the batsmen batted comfortably in the game against SL vs BAN, and each side scored over 170 runs. So the batsmen need to have some patience and play big shots once they get comfortable on the crease.

(The chasing team has won three out of the four matches played so far at this venue in ICC T20 WC 2021)
