NZ VS PAK ICC World Cup Match Prediction Today – Match 33, 2019
ICC World Cup 2019, London: Kiwis all set to lock horns against former champions Pakistan to book a semi-final spot in semi-finals of ICC world cup 2019.
After nail-biting thriller against Windies, New Zealand looks to continue their dominance against Pakistan in a match 33 of World cup in 2019 here at Edgbaston.
Apart from team India, New Zealand is the only team which remains unbeaten in the World cup. On the other hand, Pakistan needs another win to stay alive in the tournament.
New Zealand Team Updates :
New Zealand has won five matches out of six with one game being washed out due to rain. In their last game, they have pulled a thriller against Windies who lost the match with a narrow of six runs margin. Another win will guarantee them a place in semi-finals today!
New Zealand, led by captain Williamson looks super strong in all departments. Especially, Ross Taylor has been fantastic with his performance in this world cup.
Speaking of New Zealand’s pace, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult, and Matt Henry made them one of the best bowling line-up in this tournament.
Pakistan Team Updates :
Meanwhile, Pakistan scored a thumping victory against South Africa by 49 runs in their previous match.
In the last match, elected to bat first, Pakistan made a mammoth total of 308/7 in 50 overs. With 309 runs to chase, they were bundled out for 259 runs in 50 overs.
Wahab Riaz and Shadab Khan were exceptional in this match by picking three wickets each. Credit also goes to Mohammad Amir who produced a fantastic spell by conceding only 49 runs.
Meanwhile, Pakistan team replaced Shoaib Malik with Haris Sohail who turned out boon for them. He made a quickfire 89 runs with 59 balls which changed the course of the match.
But Pakistan team is in a critical situation as they need to win all three matches in upcoming days. Even the three wins don’t guarantee them a semi-final spot as it heavily depends on the results of other teams games.
Venue: Edgbaston, Birmingham
We can expect some rain for tomorrow’s match in Edgbaston. Cloud cover will be there throughout the match. So we cannot expect a full game tomorrow as there will be a decline in temperature as the game progresses.
This pitch usually favors the bowlers a little swing and pace. As there was a rain threat for this match, the conditions might mostly favor fast bowlers. So we can expect 200-250 + scores in this match which might go well with the bowlers.
New Zealand vs Pakistan toss prediction:
According to weather and pitch reports, the captain who wins the toss might choose to bowl to gain the early advantage of overcast conditions.
New Zealand Team news:
After a poor show in all matches, Kiwis wicket-keeper Tom Latham might be replaced by debutant Tom Blundell in this match to provide some quick runs in the middle order.
Like Tom Latham, Colin Munro might be replaced by another opener Henry Nicholls after his flop show in the last match.
New Zealand possible XI :
Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tom Blundell (wk), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Trent Boult, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson
Pakistan Team News:
No changes were expected from the Pakistan team. They will go with the same team who shocked the Proteas in the last match.
Middle-order batsman Shoaib Malik may not get another chance due to Haris Sohail factor. In the last match, Haris Sohail made 89 runs in just 59 balls and took two wickets to hand Pakistan a comfortable victory.
Pakistan possible XI:
Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed (C & W), Haris Sohail, Imad Wasim, Wahab Riaz, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, and Mohammad Amir
