THE TEAM NEWS
- Pakistan stunned T20 World Cup favourites India as they got the better of their bitter rivals in an outstanding display in which they were able to run out ten-wicket winners, largely thanks to the brilliance of opening pair Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan.
- That duo notched an unbeaten 152 as they surpassed their target with relative ease and the highly-rated duo will be keen to build on their start to the tournament as they look to help their nation to back-to-back victories.
- New Zealand will get their campaign underway but will not be relishing this clash against Pakistan having lost both warm-up games ahead of the tournament which means they have lost five of their last seven T20i matches.
- The Black Caps have the quality to go deep into the tournament but there is a worry about the depth of batting in their side and if their key men such as Kane Williamson and Martin Guptill fail to perform, they may not be able to live with their opponents.
Pakistan produced a magnificent performance to thrash India in their
opening game of the T20 World Cup as they propelled themselves into the
spotlight with that success. They will be desperate to make it
back-to-back wins as they take on New Zealand in what is the Black Caps’
first game of the tournament. Having won just two of their last seven
T20i matches, New Zealand have it all to do here, especially with
opening Pakistan duo Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan in such good form
this year. That pair were the difference between the teams in Pakistan’s
opening win and they can prove to be pivotal once again with the
Pakistanis able to record another victory.
