NZ vs PAK Semifinal 1, T20 World Cup 2022: New Zealand vs Pakistan Live Score

NZ vs PAK Semifinal 1, T20 World Cup 2022: New Zealand is all set to lock horns with Pakistan in the first semi-final of the T20 World Cup 2022 today ad the grounds of SCG. A few days ago no one has ever thought that Pakistan would march into the semi-finals & would set up a clash with Group 1 table toppers on November 9 at the grounds of SCG. However, the last fixture of the Super 12 stage has turned impossible into possible.

With Netherlands defeating South Africa in the first clash of Sunday’s double-header followed by Pakistan defeating Bangladesh has resulted in Pakistan qualifying for the first semi-final. On the other hand, New Zealand has been firing right from the beginning of the tournament. With three wins in five matches, Black Caps ends Group 1 at the top position. Whether table toppers Black Caps would defeat fragile Pakistan or the Men in Green will make the most of this opportunity granted to them by Proteas? All the questions will be answered today at the grounds of SCG.

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand has registered glorious defeats at the grounds of SCG against Sri Lanka & Australia & has a strong record on this pitch. Their batters & bowlers both look in great form & would aim to continue the spree at SCG. New Zealand’s bowling attack comprising Trent Boult & Tim Southee is their strength & they would aim to get early wickets in powerplay overs. In batting order, Finn Allen, Glenn Phillips & Kane Williamson are their biggest bets. While in the middle & lower order, Mitchell & Neesham would hope to provide them with a good finish. They would hope to stitch match-winning stands & help Black Caps post a competitive total on board.

Pakistan Preview

Destiny seems to be with Pakistan who held their nerves & delivered a spectacular performance against Bangladesh to book a berth in the semi-finals. Not to forget the lifeline they got with South Africa getting knocked out of the tournament after facing a defeat at the hands of the Netherlands. Pakistan would try their best to make use of this opportunity & win the semi-finals against New Zealand.

Pakistan’s top-order failed to deliver so far in the tournament. And thus their middle & lower order has come to their rescue. Mohammad Harris, Shan Masood & Shadab Khan has returned with runs in the middle & lower order. While Mohammad Nawaz & Iftikhar too showed their power-hitting capabilities & continue to be their vital cog in the lower order. However, their bowling attack comprising Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah & Mohammad Wasim Jr is their biggest strength. They would aim to provide Pakistan with early breakthroughs by scalping early wickets.
