Pitch report

In recent years, the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium pitch has proven to be a batting paradise. The average total recorded at this Karachi venue is 259 runs while batting first.

Weather Report

The weather conditions during this game are likely to be hot but things might cool off a little in the later portion of the evening.


The target set by New Zealand of 337 runs for the Pakistan batters was a pretty daunting one even by the standards of the modern ODI games. But this does not apply when you are playing a one-day game at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.

When Fakhar Zaman bats like that, there are no real opportunities for the bowlers. The premium opening batter from Pakistan has slammed 3 hundreds in a row in one-day games. The innings he played in the second match made the New Zealand bowling appear listless. Fakhar Zaman was involved in a 135-run stand with the skipper Babar Azam.

Pakistan Playing XI

Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Abdullah Shafique, Mohammad Rizwan, Shadab Khan, Agha Salman, Mohammad Nawaz, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Naseem Shah

New Zealand  

Despite the loss in the last game against Pakistan, New Zealand has done several things right in the second one-day international than they did in the first one. However, after a heroic effort from the batters, the wicket did not offer anything to the bowlers and they had to end up on the losing side again.

Daryl Mitchell was the top run-getter for New Zealand scoring a hundred. He hit 129 runs from 119 balls. He received a lot of good support from the Kiwi captain Tom Latham who scored 98 runs from 85 balls. The New Zealand opener Chad Bowes also looked impressive for a while and hit a run-a-ball fifty in this game. The Kiwi players will be happy with the fact that their batters were in-from and did well in this game.

New Zealand Playing XI

Will Young, Tom Blundell, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham, Mark Chapman, Henry Nicholls, Cole McConchie, Adam Milne, Henry Shipley, Ish Sodhi, Matt Henry

Pakistan vs New Zealand Match Prediction

Pakistan have established an upper hand over the New Zealanders in their batting department. They are looking good in this one-day international series. This trend is also likely to continue in this game. The Kiwi bowling attack lacks sufficient experience and does not have enough penetration to trouble the home side too much on these tracks. They are pretty likely to leak a lot of runs even in the 3rd game of the series.
