 NZ vs PAK Key Players


Babar Azam and Mohammad Hafeez did the bulk of scoring for Pakistan in the recent T20I series.
Babar Azam has a 50+ score in all matches.
The spin duo of Shadab Khan and Imad Wasim is a cherry on top.Shadan Khan has takenwickets in all matches.

Babar Azam smashed two half-centuries in the recent three-match T20I series against Australia to leapfrog Aaron Finch at the top of the ICC rankings. His opening partner Fakhar Zaman is ranked second and these two hold the key to Pakistan’s batting. Mohammad Hafeez scored 111 runs in the series and the hosts will want him to continue his good form. Sarfraz Ahmed seems low on confidence at the moment and this puts more responsibility on the shoulders of Shoaib Malik to anchor the innings in the middle order. Shadab Khan is the world’s second-best T20I bowler and he will pose the biggest threat to the visiting side. The leg-spinner topped the wickets charts against Australia and he will look to choke the Kiwis as well. Imad Wasim is another bowler who is expected to get plenty of support from this pitch while Hasan Ali is going to be Pakistan’s best bet when it comes to pace bowling.

New Zealand

Colin Munro, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor are the big guns for New Zealand at the top while Colin de Grandhomme is their key man in the middle order.
