In this article, we will be analyzing the NZ-W vs PAK-W Match Prediction for the 2nd T20I. Following an emphatic win over New Zealand in the first T20I, the Nida Dar-led side would be confident of repeating the same, when they face the home side once again on December 5 at University Oval, Dunedin. The likes of Fatima Sana, Shawaal Zulfiqar and Aliya Riaz stepped up to the occasion to get the job done.
New Zealand would be disappointed with their performance. Playing at home, the Sophie Devine-led side failed to live up to the expectations following a poor performance with the bat. Suzie Bates and Maddy Green tried to take it to a defendable total but 127 runs were never enough for them to get over the line. Hence, the team needs to up their game to make a comeback in the series.
