Pakistan Team News:

  • Pakistan is expected to move with the same playing 11 which they played against South Africa.
  • Shaheen Afridi comes in place of Hasan Ali after the defeat to India. He picked wickets against Africa and proved himself.
  • Another change was Haris Sohail who came in place of Shoaib Malik and played fearlessly against South Africa.

X-Factors:

Kane Williamson: No other batsmen in New Zealand has an ability to absorb pressure better than Kane Williamson. Kane Willamson is stuffed with class and amazing temperament. He could really make things worse for Pakistanis.
