Pakistan vs New Zealand will be a high-octane match like the Pak vs Ind match last night. No doubt a flying start for the Green shirts but still they have to make sure to beat New Zealand to raise its chances for the Semi-Final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Here in this passage will present predictions of the match based on the past experiences of both teams and their recent forms in the shorter format and on-paper strength of team Pakistan and New Zealand
Pak vs NZ predictions on the basis of past performances in the ICC T20 World Cups.
The first thing that we need to consider is past performances in the T20 mega-events. Till now Pakistan and New Zealand have met each other on 5 occasions in the ICC T20 World Cup history. Pakistan has won 3 matches and New Zealand has beaten Pakistan twice in the history of the T20 World Cup. So, they quite neck to neck regarding winning in the mega-events of the ICC.
Now the question is, which team Looks Strong On Paper?
Both New Zealand and Pakistan look quite strong on paper. Both have legendary players and inform players like Babar Azam and Kane Williamson.
Pakistan as well as New Zealand have a good fast bowling attack. The Quickies of the teams look threatening. Pakistan has Shaheen, Hassan, and Haris who can ball fast and have the ability to destroy any team on their day.
On the other hand, New Zealand also has a powerful fast balling attack. Trent Boult will lead the fast bowling attack of the Blackcaps. Lockie Ferguson is another quickie for team New Zealand. Tim Southee is the most experienced pro on the team. Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi are the two experienced and world-class spinners are available for New Zealand for tomorrow’s match against Pakistan in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
The wicket in Sharjah will definitely help the spinner and this is the point where you can say that Pakistan has a plus point by having some outstanding spinners in the final XI.
But on the other hand, New Zealand also has some quality spinners like Sodhi and Santner.
Overall both teams look quite balanced.
The prediction for the match between Pakistan and New Zealand is 55% Pakistan and 45% New Zealand. Who will win only time will tell. Good luck team Pakistan and New Zealand.
