NZ vs PAK Fantasy Tips

  • Kane Williamson might feature in this match after a long layoff and the Kiwi has a stellar record in this format.
  • Babar Azam scored 150 runs in the opening match against Nepal but has failed in rest of the matches in Asia Cup. However he has an average of more than 50 in ODIs this year.
  • Salman Ali Agha has failed to make much of an impact in this format. Hence avoid him for this match.
  • Daryl Mitchell has three hundreds in his previous 6 ODI matches and he will be a key pick for htis match.
  • Sodhi was simply phenomenal in the recent series with Bangladesh where he picked up a five wicket haul in the second match. He would be keen on performing on the helping Indian soil
  • Imam ul Haq has scored 2 half centuries in his previous six matches. He will be a key pick for this match.
  • Chapman has failed to impress with his performances and can be left out for this match.
  • Devon Conway scored a century in the last ODI he played in India and will be a good pick against this opposition.
  • The surface here has aided the bowlers quite a bit hence try to cover all the main all-rounders and bowlers.
  • All the memebers from both the squads can be called upon during any time of the match as this is a warm up fixture.
