Pakistan will be squaring up against New Zealand in match 19 of the T20 World Cup 2021 at the Sharjah International Cricket Stadium in Sharjah. The match will commence on Tuesday, October 26 at 07:30 PM IST. Here are our PAK vs NZ Dream11 predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
PAK vs NZ Dream11 Predictions: Preview
Can Pakistan continue their dominant show?
Pakistan put in a splendid performance against arch-rivals India. They became the first team to inflict a 10-wicket defeat on India. It was the first time that Pakistan won against India in a World Cup game. Pakistan are high on confidence. They are familiar with the conditions in the UAE. The biggest challenge that lies ahead of them is to forget the win over India and march ahead. They can beat any team on their day if they turn up well. Pakistan need to bring in their A-game against New Zealand too.
Can the Kiwis halt Pakistan’s march?
It is accepted wisdom that Pakistan are looking ahead at this game with a point to prove. New Zealand’s last-minute withdrawal from their tour to Pakistan raised fiery debates. The usually calm and collected Kiwi bunch will be up against a seething Pakistan side. Kiwis will have their task cut out against an in-form Pakistan side. It will take more than just tactical smarts for them to overcome the Pakistan challenge.
