McLean Park, like any other ground in New Zealand, is a high scoring ground. With smaller ground dimensions in place, a high scoring encounter is predicted. And rightly so it is better to have a score in mind. So chasing is preferred on this batsmen’s paradise. A light shower is forecasted and hence we may not get the full 40 overs of play.
If New Zealand bats first: 170-180
If Pakistan bats first: 150-160
