PAK vs NZ: After a scintillating 10 wicket win against India, Pakistan will lock horns against the Kiwis for their second match of the Super 12 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
Pakistan played the all iconic rivalry match against India at Dubai International Stadium. Deciding to bowl first, they did a fantastic job. Shaheen Afridi’s 3/31 restricted India to a mere 151/7. The response was a staggering won, as Mohammad Rizwan’s unbeaten 79 off 55 and Babar Azam’s unbeaten 52-ball 68 helped Pakistan clinch a ten-wicket win.

In the upcoming encounter, Pakistan have the edge over the Kiwis with the kind of red hot form they’re in.

This wicket has always been difficult to bat on and it’ll take a lot out of the batsmen to get the value for their shots. Pacers on the other hand will be provided with a lot of assistance.
The temperatures are expected to marginally decrease from 32 to 31 degrees, with mild humidity throughout the match. There are no signs of precipitation whatsoever.
