Pakistan Team News:
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.
Mohammad Amir: Amir could play an x-factor for Pakistan with light cloud and overcast conditions, the talented pace bowler would pluck some wickets with his swingers.
