  • Pakistan vs New Zealand Dream11 Prediction

    PAK vs NZ Dream11 Prediction : The first test match between New Zealand and Pakistan at the National stadium in Karachi ended up in a draw. The pitch was not an ideal one for test cricket to say the least. Having won the toss, Pakistan scored 438 courtesy of a gutsy knock of 161 runs by the skipper Babar Azam. Making a return to the Pakistan team, Sarfaraz Ahmed also chipped in with a brisk knock of 86 runs. In reply, New Zealand also made sure to make the most of the run fest as Kane Williamson and Tom Latham smashed 200 and 113 runs respectively. Despite a gutsy declaration by the Pakistan skipper in the second innings, the game ended in a draw. The same venue is going to host the second test match  and we hope for better playing conditions suitable to produce a result.

    PAK vs NZ Pitch Report

    The National Stadium in Karachi did not really live up to the expectations with the pitch on offer. It was a batting paradise, the kind where bowlers do not really enjoy bowling. People would be expecting the curators to make a more sporting wicket to get the best of test cricket. The weather is expected to remain the same throughout with no chance of rainfall.
