NZ vs PAK Dream11 Prediction: Preview
New Zealand clinched the three-match T20I series against Pakistan. However, the visitors avoided a total washout in T20I after bagging a consolation win in the third match. Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam, who missed the T20I series, will also be out of the first Test. Mohammad Rizwan will lead the Pakistan side in the absence of Azam. Pakistan will majorly rely on their bowlers to come up with the goods against the mighty Kiwis. Mohammad Abbas, Naseem Shah, and Shaheen Afridi will carry Pakistan’s bowling attack.
As for the hosts, they will enter the clash with an abundance of momentum on their side. The Kiwis wiped the floor with the West Indians in their latest conducted two-match Test series. The Kane Williamson-led side will enter the clash against Pakistan as clear favorites.
