  • New Zealand reached a third consecutive T20 World Cup semi-final after dominating their ‘Super 12’ group right from the beginning, thrashing Australia on the way to topping the group, gaining seven points from a possible ten.
  • The expectation is that the Black Caps will not make any changes for this semi-final with all bases covered within their side and nobody significantly out of form.


  • After a nightmare start to the ‘Super 12’s’ stage of the T20 World Cup, Pakistan have snuck into the semi-finals through the proverbial back door after beating Bangladesh in a winner-take-all clash following Netherlands’ shock victory over South Africa which eliminated the Proteas.
  • Pakistan fans will be hoping that this semi-final will see captain Babar Azam come to the fore with the bat following a below-par tournament so far by his exceptionally high standards, which saw him end the 2021 T20 World Cup as the competition’s highest run-scorer.


New Zealand are likely to come into this semi-final as narrow favourites, but the last time these two nations met in a competitive T20i, it was Pakistan who emerged victorious, beating the Black Caps in the final of a recent Tri-Nation series in Christchurch which included Bangladesh. Whilst Pakistan have been at far from their best over the course of the T20 World Cup, but most importantly appear to have firmly rediscovered their winning touch having triumphed in their last three ‘Super 12’ fixtures. New Zealand may be the stronger all-round side on paper, but Pakistan boasts that mercurial streak that so often in the past has seen them sneak into the latter stages of major tournaments before peaking at just the right time. With that in mind, the shrewd play here is to back Pakistan to win and reach the final, going one step further than last year.
