    Pakistan vs New Zealand Pitch Report

    The wicket and the conditions at the National Stadium will provide a competitive track that will have enough for both the batsmen and bowlers. However, the surface is expected to be little dry which will assist the spinners to a great extent but the batsmen from both Pakistan and New Zealand will enjoy batting on this pitch. The pace bowlers will have some help during the first few overs and a lot under the lights during the second innings. It will be a good option to pick more of batsmen and spinners in your fantasy cricket teams.
