NZ vs PAK Dream11 Predictions
Pakistan vs New Zealand in the UAE, 2018
Pakistan vs New Zealand, 2nd ODI | NZ vs PAK WHO WILL WIN
After succumbing to a 47-run loss at the hands of the Kiwis, Pakistan will aim to keep the series alive when they lock horns with New Zealand in the second ODI on Friday.
Abject Pakistan look to address their ODI woes; Kiwis aim for their 5th successive series win over the hosts
Unlike the T20Is, Pakistan fortunes in the 50-over format have been dwindling for quite some time now. Wednesday’s loss was their 12th successive defeat to the Kiwis following a 0-5 whitewash at the start of this year. What should concern the Pakistani think-tank is the fact that this was their ninth loss in 16 games this year (six of seven wins came against Zimbabwe and Hong Kong).
The loss followed a similar template with the top-order failing to provide a good start (this time courtesy a Trent Boult hattrick), a flurry of wickets in the middle and a futile attempt to take the game close, eventually ending in a defeat.
New Zealand, on the other hand, will be buoyed by the way they recovered after losing a flurry of wickets in the middle-order to get past 250. The opening combination still remains a concern in the absence of Martin Guptill with George Worker failing to grab his opportunity.
With various sub-plots playing out as teams’ try to get their combination right ahead of next year’s World Cup, the second game will be very crucial especially for the Pakistanis as they aim to turn around their abject ODI form before they travel to South Africa and England next year
