Pakistan vs New Zealand – ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022: Background

Pakistan and New Zealand have faced each other a total of 6 times in the T20 world cups and Pakistan has won 4 times out of those while New Zealand took victory in 2 matches. Certainly, Pakistan has always had an upper hand against New Zealand in the world cup and they might take the win here. Considering how they barely made past the group stage their spirits will be high. New Zealand has a history of bad luck in the finals, and semi-finals, which Pakistan will need to grab an advantage of. However, only looking at past records will not help us in determining who has the better chance to win.

Pakistan

Batting:

Pakistan has had an average batting display throughout. However, their match against South Africa did show some potential in the team. They have qualified through a miracle and they will also be looking to place Babar Azam down as his form is not up to the mark. However, we did see some positives from Iftikhar, Shadab, and Muhammad Haris. Pakistan can upset any big team on their day. Babar Azam should come to one down so that Haris can keep up the average in power play. 

Bowling:

As far as bowling is concerned, Pakistan has got the best pacers as quoted by many legends. For example, Haris Rauf, Shaheen, Wasim, and Naseem are the perfect pacers Pakistan could have right now on Australian soil and each of them is performing well. Shaheen Shah also came back to his best and took the vital wickets and kept the run rate in check as well. Rauf’s first overs are one to forget but nonetheless his last over was amazing. 

New Zealand

Batting:

New Zealand has been batting well in the world cup. Moreover, their top order has been amazing and has posed a threat to all the teams out there. New Zealand is the biggest threat in this tournament. Further, Allen and Conway’s performance in this world cup has been amazing and they did threaten the entire bowling lineup of teams. The only thing they need to keep in check is to score more than 160 and that will keep Pakistan at bay. 

Bowling:

As far as bowling is concerned, we have seen variable performances by players. Boult, Southee, and Sodhi are the main experienced bowlers in the line-up. Sodhi sometimes is unable to execute the ball well and proves to be quite expensive thus if the opponent teams target him, he must work on his delivery. However, they do swing the ball as well.
