NZ vs PAK Team Previews

New Zealand

New Zealand started on an excellent note as they won their first 4 matches of the tournament. At one stage, they were also at the top of the points table. However, their campaign has sputtered over the last few days as the team has endured 3 consecutive losses as they head into this contest.

While they are still in the top 4, New Zealand will look to win this match by a good margin to avoid any jitters.

The Black Caps were blown away by a rampant South Africa in their latest fixture as the former put up its worst batting performance of the tournament. As they look to bounce back, the upcoming 10 days will be crucial for New Zealand’s future. Rachin Ravindra has by far been the top batsman in the team and the top run-getter.

He, along with Daryl Mitchell will be the key batsmen during the middle overs. Devon Conway, who played a scintillating knock in the opening fixture, has struggled to carry forward his form, and Will Young too hasn’t been at his fluent best. Glenn Phillips scored a gritty half-century in the match against South Africa and will hope to continue with the momentum.

The New Zealand camp is marred by a fresh bout of injuries. Lockie Ferguson missed the last match due to an Achilles heel, while Matt Henry had to leave mid-way due to a hamstring. Kyle Jamieson has been called as a cover for him.

Pakistan's World Cup campaign is in shambles as they have won just 3 of the 7 matches played by them so far. However, New Zealand’s big loss against South Africa has given the Men in Green a glimmer of hope as a big win on Saturday might just help them get a toehold in the top-4.

Nevertheless, a seat in the playoffs will depend on a lot of permutations and combinations.

Mohammad Rizwan and Abdullah Shafique have been the standout performers in an otherwise mediocre batting effort from Pakistan. Rizwan is the top-scorer with 359 runs, while Shafique is close behind with 332. Imam Ul-Haq has struggled to get going at the top of the order, while the form of Babar Azam, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Saud Shakeel has been patchy.

Pakistan will need to put up a much better batting performance in this match. Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Rauf have been good with the new ball, picking up 16 and 12 wickets respectively. However, they have been on the expensive side.

Mohammad Wasim Jr., who came in for Hasan Ali, has been impressive so far. However, there is a lot to be desired as far as spin bowling goes as none of the bowlers have managed to make an impact.

NZ vs PAK Toss Prediction

The toss doesn’t seem to play much of a role in Bangalore as teams batting first and second enjoy similar success rates. However, we feel that batting first will be a good option on this ground.

Pitch and Conditions

The Chinnaswamy Stadium is traditionally a high-scoring venue. The pitch is flat and offers a good amount of pace and bounce. The seamers will get some help early on but there are no alarming movements off the pitch. The team batting first will look to post a big total to put the opposition under pressure.

The pitch does slow down and help the spinners in the latter half. Since this is a day match, dew will not be a factor.

The weather however may play a spoilsport as there are high chances of rain in the afternoon. 


NZ vs PAK Betting Tips

Both teams are struggling at the moment and will be eager to bounce back. While this is one of the more difficult matches to call, we feel that New Zealand has a slight edge in this contest. The team has a better balance of players, especially in the bowling department, and that may just help them finish on top.

Bet on New Zealand to win.
