NZ vs PAK 1st T20I Dream11 Match Preview: Pakistan is all set to travel to New Zealand for its tour and will be playing their first T20I game. New Zealand will be hosting the game at their own prestigious Eden Park. This tour will be very much vital for them as the victors might be given a new position on the T20I World rankings.
Pakistan recently dominated over West Indies, when they had come to tour in Pakistan and we got to see some intense cricket from them. They are currently at the 4th position of the worldwide T20I ranking. In this series, Pakistan might bring up their young talents on the field and we cant expect some good moments to be seen from them. Though they will enter this match with a major concern of Babar Azam ruling out of the series but have plans for Haider Ali and Mohammad Rizwan, who might boost their game against New Zealand. Wahab Riaz, Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf will be boosting the side’s bowling assault.
New Zealand to come into this with a brilliant win against West Indies in world champions. Glenn Phillips and Mitchell Santner were seen to be in great form. The team does have quality on their side and the batting department is just top-notch. Blair Tickner and Jacob Duffy are going to play in this game which will boost their bowling department. Overall, they will come with confidence while hosting this series.
