THE LOWDOWN

PAKISTAN

Many expected Pakistan to win this series comfortably going into it, but now the hosts are fighting to rescue the series after having lost the last two games, meaning their now trail by two matches to one as it stands. After being in a good position chasing 179 to win, the top order were taken down during the powerplay and despite rallying in the second half of their chase, Pakistan were left with too much to do, eventually losing by four runs.

NEW ZEALAND

New Zealand just being in a position to win this series is a testament to their strength-in-depth and team spirit. The top three got the Black Caps off to an ideal start, Tim Robinson leading way with a half-century. After scoring 178/7, the bowlers ripped open the heart of Pakistan’s top order in the powerplay, laying the foundations for victory.

THE PREDICTION

Pakistan are really struggling to find a ‘complete’ performance that sees them maintain a high level throughout the entirety of the fixture. Much better is expected from them and to lose a series at home against an virtual second strong doesn’t bare thinking about from the hosts’ perspective, With that in mind, back Pakistan to finally get back on the board and level the series.

TIP: PAKISTAN TO WIN
