  • New Zealand vs Pakistan Dream11

    NZ vs PAK Dream11 Prediction : The tournament has entered its knockout stages and the teams who keep their nerves shall sustain till the end. New Zealand have played some magnificent brand of cricket throughout the tournament. They managed to beat some top teams in their group to get through to the semis. In their last encounter of Super 12 they beat a competitive Irish team by a healthy margin of 35 runs. Pakistan, on the other hand, have just been lucky to say the least as not many would have expected Netherlands to upset South Africa on the final day of the group stage. That upset gave Pakistan the window to book a semi final berth and they latched upon it by beating Bangladesh by 5 wickets. Now, the fate is in their hands and would look to forget about the past and move forward in the tournament.
