In NZ vs PAK today match prediction, lets take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides

Strengths

New Zealand (NZ)

What has been the biggest highlight of India's tour of Australia 2020-21?

  • They are in red hot form at the moment and are looking unbeatable.
  • Their bowling and batting are clicking unanimously and takes some effort for any team in the world to beat them at the moment.

Pakistan (PAK)

  • The professor is in ominous form and will finish the year 2020 as one of the best batsmen in the shortest format of the game.
  • Faheem Ashraf has been impressive throughout the series and has given another option to Pakistan in the longer run.

Weaknesses

New Zealand (NZ)

  • The form of Martin Guptill and Ish Sodhi is their only problem at the moment and they have all bases covered for a team that plays with only half of their first choice players.

Pakistan (PAK)

  • Their top order has been a massive letdown in the absence of Babar Azam. Though, it was an expected one, the way these batsmen gave up without putting up a fight will be a worrying sign for PAK in the longer run.
  • The impact of Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan is reduced because of the scores with which they have to defend.

NZ vs PAK dream11 team prediction tips

Since this is a dead rubber, NZ might rest some of their players and its important to choose right players for this game in NZ vs PAK dream11 prediction

Tim Seifert: The destructive right hand batsman is in red hot form and has been giving some hard times to the Pakistani bowlers. He scored an unbeaten 84 off 63 balls in the 2nd T20I. He is the leading run scorer with 141 runs in this series so far.

Tim Southee: He wreck-havocked Pakistan top order in the 2nd game when the ball swung and Pakistan batsmen had no clue to his impeccable line and length. He is always a reliable pick in T20s in New Zealand.

Mohammad Hafeez: He missed out on a well deserved century by just a run in the 2nd T20I. He was timing the ball like a dream and the onus will be once again on him to guide the team in the batting department.

Kane Williamson: He needs no introduction and walks straight into any fantasy team in any format of the game. He scored a crafty 57 off 42 deliveries in the 2nd game.

Other picks: Scott Kuggeleijn, Haider Ali, Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf can all be quality picks.

Today NZ vs PAK match score: Anything above 200 will be a winning score on this ground

Today match pitch report: There hasn’t been much matches played at this venue but all in all a batting paradise is expected for the game

Who won last game: NZ won the game by 9 wickets.
