NZ vs PAK Preview

  • Pakistan defeated Bangladesh to begin the tri-series.

  • A struggling Pakistan middle-order will face a formidable challenge from Tim Southee, Trent Boult, and Lockie Ferguson.


On Saturday night at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch, the second game of the New Zealand Men’s T20I Tri-Nation Series pits New Zealand against Pakistan. At the same venue, Pakistan defeated Bangladesh by a score of 21 runs on Friday to start the series. At 19:00 local time, the game begins.

New Zealand competed in the T20 World Cup final in 2021 and is a powerhouse at home. The majority of analysts predict that they will win this game.

On Friday, Pakistan was simply too strong for Bangladesh, despite their continued reliance on Mohammad Rizwan’s runs. In this configuration, they are capable of defeating any team.

NZ vs PAK Match Toss Prediction

At this location, whether it be for international or domestic T20s, teams batting first and second have won nearly equal numbers of games. Pakistan would prefer to chase down a total if they win the toss in this match, despite the fact that they were able to defend 168 in the first T20I of this tri-series.

NZ vs PAK Pitch Report

In Christchurch, there is a great surface that has everything to offer both bowlers and batsmen. On Saturday, it will be challenging to overtake any total of 160.

New Zealand Team News & Probable Playing XIs

The hosts suffered a setback when it was revealed that batting all-rounder Daryl Mitchell had broken a finger on the eve of the first game. He is currently in a battle against time to be healthy enough for the T20 World Cup, hence he won’t take part in this series.
