New Zealand Reviews
New Zealand had played a recent T20 series against West Indies where they had a clean sweep with 2-0. New Zealand tested some young players in that series like Devon Conway and Glenn Phillips who gave their best performance in that series. The batting order of New Zealand is strong at least on papers. Tim Seifert and Martin Guptill are going to open the batting inning against Pakistan. Ross Taylor had been dropped for this series from the team.
We think that Mark Chapman will be replacing Ross Taylor in this series against Pakistan. The all-rounding squad of the New Zealand team is also strong as compared to the team Pakistan. Mitchell Santner, Scott Kuggeleijn, Ish Sodhi, Blair Tickner, Jacob Duffy, and James Neesham. New Zealand is not stronger as compared to Pakistan when it comes to the bowling department.
Pakistan team is facing some troubles right before the start of this series against New Zealand. The Captain and the key batsman of the Pakistan side, Babar Azam is injured and some other batsman had to step up but it looks almost impossible. We know how the class Babar Azam has in batting. The opening batting pair is still not finalized as Fakhar Zaman is also not the part of the squad of this team and Babar Azam is absent. In our opinion, Abdullah Shafique will be opening the batting with Haidar Ali for Pakistan. Mohammad Hafeez is also part of the squad which is a good sign for team Pakistan.
Mohammad Rizwan and Khushdil Shah are the other batsmen which can play well in the condition like in New Zealand. Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan will be the last who can bat. Wahab Riaz, Haris Rauf, and Shaheen Shah Afridi are three key fast bowlers in the Pakistan team. Muhammad Musa and Mohammad Hasnain also have a chance to play a match during this series. Usman Qadir is part of the squad for this series but we don’t think that he will be part of the playing XI as Shadab Khan is back into the side. Faheem Ashraf can also have a chance to play a game during this series.
