NZ vs PAK Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match
Abu Dhabi, October 31 at 09:30 PM IST
Pakistan, the best T20 side in the world, are up against New Zealand a couple of days after wrapping their tenth-successive T20 series, clean sweeping Australia 3-0.
Pakistan were calm with the bat against Australia, never trying to achieve what was beyond their ability. And, at the same time, fierce with the ball to keep the likes of Aaron Finch and Chris Lynn quiet. They would be keen on extending their juggernaut.
New Zealand, on the other hand, make return to International cricket after six months. The tourists are missing big names like Martin Guptill (calf injury) and Trent Boult (paternity leave). New Zealand have a tough series ahead of them. Can they play out of their skins to stop top ranked Pakistan side?
Australia struggled on the UAE tour and New Zealand might find it difficult to adjust to the conditions right away. The surface is likely to help the slow bowlers.
Last competitive result at the venue: Pakistan 155/8 defeat Australia 89 all-out – Oct 24, Australia vs. Pakistan in UAE, 2018
Uncapped slow-left arm bowler, Ajaz Patel is the late addition to New Zealand squad.
Pakistan have named a 12-man squad for the fixture. Fakhar Zaman will mis out.
