PAK vs NZ Team Previews


There is every chance that the home team will make a change to their line-up for the 4th game of the series. The team management may consider bringing in Usama Mir instead of Mohammad Nawaz for this game. Mohammad Nawaz sustained an injury over his hands when he tried to stop a ball in the 3rd game of the series. As far as the Pakistan batting is considered the team will rely on the likes of Fakhar Zaman, skipper Babar Azam, Agha Salman, Abdullah Shafique, and the wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan to score the majority of runs.

In their last game against the same opposition, the Pakistani opener Imam Ul-Haq was the top performer with the bat. He was the leading run-getter for Pakistan scoring 90 runs from 107 balls. Apart from this top contribution to his team we also saw the skipper Babar Azam being in excellent touch with the bat scoring yet another half-century. He scored 54 runs from 62 balls. As far as the Pakistani bowling attack is concerned the team will depend on their top fast bowlers Muhammad Waseem Jr, Shaheen Afridi, and Naseem Shah for getting breakthroughs with the new ball.

In their last game of the series, this fast-bowling attack bowled exceptionally well for their country and picked a couple of wickets each. Unfortunately, Shadab Khan went wicketless and also conceded 45 runs from his quota of 10 overs. Mohammad Rizwan is another key batter for Pakistan. He scored 32 runs in the last game from 34 balls with a six. The young speedster Naseem Shah was again both economical and picked up vital wickets. He picked up 2 scalps for 41 runs in a spell of 8.1 overs.

He was supported in this progress by Cole McConchie who scored a quick 65 from 45 balls with 2 sixes and 6 fours. As far as the New Zealand bowling attack is concerned, the team will rely on players such as Matt Henry, Rachin Ravindra, Cole McConchie, Ish Sodhi, James Neesham, and Adam Milne to pick up crucial breakthroughs.
