iconNew Zealand Team News

12 Kiwi wickets fell with runs scored in single digits while there were 6 ducks in the 2 innings, including 5 in the first innings. This is the major reason they surrendered the match in Dubai so cheaply. Tom Latham, Ross Taylor and Henry Nicholls scored second innings half centuries but they couldn’t handle the turn and guile of Yasir Shah.

All rounder Colin de Grandhomme has scored just 17 runs and taken 4 wickets in the 2 Tests so far and he really needs to step up for his team. His place in the Starting XI could be under threat.

iconPakistan Team News

Yasir Shah was the Man of the Match for Pakistan as he picked up 14 wickets in the second Test, which is the second best bowling figures by a Pakistan bowler. He was aided by Babar Azam and Haris Sohail scoring imposing centuries that set Pakistan up for a strong first innings total.

Mohammad Abbas is likely to miss this match due to a shoulder injury he suffered in the second Test. If he fails to pass a late fitness Test, the impressive Shaheen Afridi could be in line to make his Test debut.

Pitch Conditions

 

The Abu Dhabi pitch will continue to deteriorate as this match grows older. There will be some assistance for the bowlers but batting will become tricky with each passing day. Fielding is going to be another nightmare for both teams.

Toss Prediction

 

Expect the team winning the toss to bat first.

Our Match Prediction

This is anybody’s game but the momentum is with Pakistan right now.
