I hope Pakistan will not repeat the mistake again which they did against India. Both teams are completely in-form players in both formats it will be a good match. New Zealand team performance in the last two matches was unbelievable and also two great victories. If today’s match New Zealand loss (which is approx impossible) then they have not big worry but if Pakistan loss today! they might be out from this t20 world cup 2016.
Pakistan got a little bit of worry about Mohammad Hafeez’s injury and also Wahab Riaz, Pitch conditions are looking good for New Zealand but not the accurate predictive, Dew may interfere during the game with some little rain.
New Zealand have won the toss and choose to bat first
Pakistan Playing XI: Ahmed Shehzad, Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Umar Akmal, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed†, Shahid Afridi*, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Sami, Mohammad Irfan.
New Zealand Team: MJ Guptill, KS Williamson*, C Munro, CJ Anderson, LRPL Taylor, GD Elliott, MJ Santner, L Ronchi†, AF Milne, MJ McClenaghan, IS Sodhi.
Pakistan could be forced to make changes due to their injury concerns. Perhaps that may make room for left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz or Imad Wasim. Khalid Latif could come in for Hafeez. New Zealand kept their cards to their chest about their team combinations. “We will look up that pitch tomorrow, the pitch will be covered overnight and will dry up a bit,” Hesson said. “We will pick a side that suits the conditions and the opposition, but won’t be thinking too far ahead.”
