NZ vs PAK Fantasy Tips and Prediction
New Zealand:They haven’t been defeated in this world cup, just like India and are at the top of the table with 11 points. Last game was arguably the best game of this world cup. The game was moving like a pendulum but in the end, Kiwis hold their nerve and win those crucial situations in the match. Earlier in the match, they lost their openers for a duck. But then we saw Taylor- Williamson show, the stitched more than 100 runs partnership with quite ease, Although Taylor got out on well made 69 but Williamson continued and scored back to back 100. His 148 got NZ to a respectable total of 291. Then Boult showed his class with the new ball and got Shai and Nicholas cheaply. In the end, Braithwaite was standing between their win and loss. His legendary hundred got Windies almost win but Boult sensational catch turned the game for New Zealand. They might bring Ish Sodhi for one of the allrounders.
Probable XI: Ross Taylor, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson (c), Colin de Grandhomme, Colin Munro, Trent Boult, Tom Latham (wk), James Neesham/Ish Sodhi, Matt Henry, Mitchell Santner, Lockie Ferguson
Pakistan:Pakistan have 5 points now. Three more games, three more wins and they can make it 11. This win against Proteas means a lot to Pakistan as they have been cornered by all and sundry in the build for the game, a win by 49 runs will be a big shot in their arm. A big chunk of the credit goes to Haris Sohail. His 59-ball run rampage which yielded 89 runs meant Pakistan had the cushion of that extra 20 runs. That gave them the momentum. With the ball, Pakistan had all their aces up their sleeves. Their leggie (Shadab) spun a web and scalped 3 crucial wickets. Mohammad Amir becomes the leading wicket-taker of the tournament and Wahab Showed his potent with the old ball reverse. Although the fielding is something that they need to work on but other than that, it was a complete performance from them. Your Dream11 X-Factor for this match can be Shadab Khan.
Probable XI: Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Haris Sohail, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c & wk), Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, Shaheen Afridi
