PAK vs NZ Cricket Betting Tips and Tricks, 3rd T20I Match Prediction- Who Will Win Today T20 Match? The third game of the five-match T20I series between Pakistan and New Zealand will be played at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore on 17th April, Monday.
PAK vs NZ 3rd T20I, Match Preview:
Game number three of the five-match T20I series between the home team Pakistan and New Zealand will take place on Monday at the Gaddafi Stadium.
The home team Pakistan has taken a 2-0 lead in the series as they won by 38 runs in the second T20I.
After winning the toss and opting to bat first, the home team got off to a flying start as both their openers looked in good control and they scored 59 runs in the powerplay. Their 99-run partnership was broken by Matt Henry as Rizwan fell soon after his fifty. Matt Henry then picked up Fakhar Zaman for a duck in the very next ball.
New Zealand took 4 wickets in quick succession to put pressure back on the Pakistan batting, from 99/0 quickly became 105/4. Pakistan badly needed a comeback at that stage of the innings to post a formidable total. They found an ideal partnership in the form of Babar and Iftikhar Ahmed, who stitched an 87-run partnership to put up a good score of 192 on the board. Skipper Babar Azam was exceptional as he registered his 3rd T20I ton.
The Pakistan bowlers were tight in their defense of 192, they were good with the new ball and the visitors found it very hard to get going in the powerplay. After losing the openers, Mark Chapman came into bat and got going from the very first ball, and kept scoring runs at a brisk rate.
It was all a one-man show in the middle overs – Haris Rauf, who dented New Zealand big time by striking regularly. He eventually finished with a four-fer. For the visitors, it was Chapman who starred with the bat and stayed unbeaten at 65.
The visitors would look to put up a better performance in the next game and stay alive in the series. Meanwhile, the home team would look to seal the series with 2 games to go.
Key Players for Pakistan in PAK vs NZ:
Haris Rauf: The right-arm pacer has been highly impressive for his side in the shorter format for the last few years. He has picked 76 wickets in just 56 innings at an economy rate of 8.1 in his T20I career so far. In the first game, he was adjudged player of the match for his excellent spell of 3-0-17-4. He followed it with another 4-wicket haul in the second T20I as well.
Babar Azam: The skipper of Pakistan, the run machine, is back to his very best. In the last game, he played one of the finest knocks in the T20Is as he recorded his 3rd T20I ton. He was at his fluent best, scoring an unbeaten 101 off just 58 balls.
Key Players for New Zealand in PAK vs NZ:
Matt Henry: The right-arm pacer has been impressive so far in the series, for the visitors with the ball picking up 5 wickets in 2 games at an economy rate of 7.9 which includes a hat-trick in the first T20I.
Daryl Mitchell: The hard-hitting All rounder looks to be in prime touch. In the Test series against Sri Lanka, he scored 200 runs in just 3 Innings at an average of 66.7. He is a good bowler as well picking up key wickets in the middle overs. In the ODI series, he picked up 5 wickets in just 2 games. In the first T20I, he was the top scorer for his side with 66 runs off just 44 balls. He would look to carry on his good run of form into this series as well.
