NZ vs PAK Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for 2nd T20I Match New Zealand vs Pakistan 20 December

NZ vs PAK Dream 11 Team Prediction: The 2nd T20I of the Pakistan tour of New Zealand is scheduled for 20th December. In the last match, the hosts won the match easily due to their good bowling performance and the rusty approach of the Pakistan top-order batsmen. But, the challenge is going to get tougher for the visitors, as Williamson, Boult, Southee,and Jamieson returns back to the squad and almost all of them may feature in this game. The debutant Duffy was named as the player of the match in the T20I can be given a green signal ahead of this match due to his good form. The batting department has a good opening pair in Guptill and Siefert, with the er scoring a half-century in the last match. While Phillips and Conway would look to boost the scoring rate in the middle overs. The all-rounders Neesham and Santner are reliable players due to their experience in the T20 format.

On the other side, the Pakistan team would look to regain confidence and level the series. The batting department needs to step-up and score enough runs for the team. The pair of Haider Ali-Hafeez form the core part of the batting unit and their performances will decide the fate of the Pakistan team. The all-rounders Shadab Khan and Ashraf played good knocks to help Pakistan to post a good score on the board. The bowling department has Afridi and Rauf who have been impressive in the T20 format and would look to maintain the same form.

NZ vs PAK Dream11 Team Prediction

PAK Team News

The regular T20 team captain Babar Azam broke his thumb during a practice session and was out of the T20I series. The team is looking inexperienced in the absence of  Fakhar Zaman and Shoaib Malik. Rizwan, a usual middle-order batsman is opening up for the team and it has become a total fragile batting lineup. The team is expected to play with the same line-up in the NZ vs PAK Dream 11 Team Prediction.

NZ Team News
Kane Williamson will be back at the top of the order, after seeing the birth of his first child, so he'll most likely replace Chapman in the team. Munro hasn't been picked either and is playing in the BBL, so a man not in form Guptill could make way for Williamson too. Southee, Jamieson, Boult,and Mitchell are back and have joined the squad.

NZ vs PAK Today Match Prediction

New Zealand will win this match. Pakistan will surely feel the absence of their star batsman and captain Babar Azam in this match too. The Kiwis now look stronger against this Pakistani team. The top order looks is so strong and can easily trouble this opposition with it's fierce batting lineup. Pakistan will have to see the best of batting from the openers; Asad Shafique, who got out on a duck in the first game,and Rizwan, who didn't go well either. Haider and Hafeez are the backbone of this batting lineup, with their experience, it's a must for them to perform and to win this one.It can be close but New Zealand will clinch the series win. It will be fascinating to see which team wins the NZ vs PAK Today match prediction.
