Pakistan Team Preview
Pakitan had a dream start of the World Cup 2021 when they beat their biggest rivals in the cricket world i.e India by 10 wickets. Their openers Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam smashed Indian bowlers all over and gave them no chance to take even a single wickets. These two batsmen are going through a purple patch of their career in all format of cricket. Before the match against India, their were some concerns in the batting and bowling of Pakistan but it seems they sorted out these issues at the right time.
Pakistan will be high on confidence and would like to keep up the winning momentum against New Zealand also.
Shaheen Shah Afridi took the wickets of Indian openers early on which set up the base for Pakistan, not allowing Indians to score freely as the wickets kept falling at regular intervals. Shaheen Shah Afridi is expected to show his brilliance with ball again in the match against New Zealand.
New Zealand Team Preview
New Zealand have not played much T20 cricket in the recent times, but there is no doubt how how this team is when it comes to shorter version of the cricket. They can dominate any team with the top class batsmen, bowlers and allrounders. The kind of performance that Pakistan shown in the first match against India, it will not be easy for New Zealand to clash with them. As most of the other teams in T20 World Cup have players who have recently played in IPL, New Zealand players have not much players who played in IPL so they must be fresh to take part this big cricket event. Martin Guptil has returned into the team and he along with super talent Kane Williamson will look to completely utilize their experience.
In the bowling department name of Trent Boult and Kyle Jamieson will always be on top.
