NZ vs PAK Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match
Dubai, November 02 at 09:30 PM IST
It seems Pakistan have cracked the T20 code. On Wednesday, they registered 7th straight win in T20Is and it is the third time they have won seven games on the bounce in the format. Where does it leave the touring New Zealand side?
In the 1st T20I, the Kiwis had the game in their grasp for the most part. It were the last 10 overs where Pakistan put them under pressure and the visitors succumbed to it.
The hosts come into the fixture as favourites but can’t get carried away, with New Zealand demonstrating their capabilities despite playing International cricket after seven months. Having shown determination in the first T20I, New Zealand can be expected to come out strong to draw the series level.
Dubai International Cricket Stadium is a lot like Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, and can be expected to play like that. However, it is relatively smaller and score in excess of 150 for the side batting first can be expected.
Last T20I result at the venue: Pakistan 150 defeat Australia 117 all-out, October 28, 3rd T20I, Australia tour of United Arab Emirates 2018
Hasan Ali was seen holding his hamstring in the 15th over in the last game, but there is no report confirming the injury.
Fakhar Zaman, who missed the last two T20Is, will undergo a fitness test ahead of the game.

Pakistan captain and wicket-keeper Sarfaraz Ahmed scored a fluent 34 on Wednesday and can be considered for wicket-keeping duties. Kiwi keeper Tim Siefert is not favoured for his lack of experience in UAE
Colin Munro was at his best in the first T20, recording the only 50+ score in the game.
Asif Ali, Mohammad Hafeez and Ross Taylor are among others who played good hands.
Babar Azam and Kane Williamson could not get going but players of their quality can be backed to come good with the bat.
Since it’s a spin-friendly surface, you can choose from Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Ajaz Patel and Ish Sodhi, although Hasan Ali, Tim Southee and Adam Milne are safe bets.
