    Martin Guptill NZ vs PAK: In a crucial news development, New Zealand’s Martin Guptill is not playing this important ICC T20 World Cup 2022 semi-final encounter against Pakistan scheduled to be held at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney. Barring a disappointing loss at the hands of England, the New Zealand team have performed amazingly well in this group stage of the T20 competition right from the dominating victory over Australia. The Kiwis finished at the top of the points table in Group 1 of this ICC T20 World Cup 2022.

    After winning a crucial toss and opting to bat first, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson revealed that they are playing with an unchanged combination from the last game against Ireland. This also means that senior batsman Martin Guptill is once again not part of the playing 11 and this has been the story in this entire ICC T20 World Cup 2022. During the first game against Australia, New Zealand backed young Finn Allen to open the batting and he ripped apart the Aussie bowling attack right from the word go as he smashed an explosive knock of 42 runs. Allen also notched up an important cameo of 32 runs off only 18 balls against Ireland and this has made things really tough for Guptill who has been an important member of this New Zealand squad in the history of T20I cricket.

    “We are gonna have a bat. Used surface, not much grass on it. We’re going with the same team. Same pitch but different I reckon. It’s important we adjust to those changing conditions and assess quickly. There are a few unknowns, important we stick to our plans. Our focus is on this game, what we want to do here and really try and express ourselves with the cricket that we’ve been playing,” said New Zealand captain Kane Williamson during the toss.
