ABOUT THE MATCH

Pakistan have started the series against the New Zealand the way they ended the Australia series: with a win. They will now look to seal the 3 match T20I series with victory in the second match in Dubai.

Match Preview

The first match makes it 19 matches between the two sides, with Pakistan winning 11. They are now on a 11 match winning streak in the 20 over format.

iconPakistan Team News

Mohammad Hafeez and Sarfraz Ahmed piled on the runs for Pakistan. But it was the bowling that won them the match. Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi and Imad Wasim did well to increasing the pressure on the Kiwi batsmen by stifling them. 18-year-old Shaheen did especially well as he defended 17 runs in the final over.

There's no reason they should change the team for the next match though they could get Shoaib Malik to bowl a few overs.

iconNew Zealand Team News

Bowling first, the New Zealand bowlers had done well to limit Pakistan to under 150. Colin Munro had given them a fantastic start to the run chase and Ross Taylor had chipped in too but it was ultimately not enough.

They will want to put on a better show in Dubai, having finished just 2 runs shy of a victory in the first match.

Pitch Conditions

 

Considering the amount of cricket that has been played in Dubai in the last 2 months, the pitch would've suffered a lot of wear and tear. Dew will also play a factor in the later stages, making it difficult to bat.

Toss Prediction

 

The team winning the toss will elect to bat first.

Our Match Prediction

New Zealand might just win the second match and level the series.
