Toss Prediction for PAK vs NZ Match

The team winning the toss might opt to bowl first. Bowling first is a safe option in T20Is as the team batting second already knows the target to chase. Moreover, the dew might also help the team batting second and hence, the team might opt to bowl first after winning the toss.
