PAK vs NZ: New Zealand Playing 11 for Pakistan, 2nd Test. New Zealand will face Pakistan in the second Test in Karachi starting on January 2. The first Test ended in a draw with both teams sharing four points each. The Test series is a part of the ongoing World Test Championship. Both teams play a three-match ODI series after the second Test. The matches will be played on January 9. 11 and 13 in Karachi.

New Zealand were intelligent enough to avoid a defeat. They were asked to chase 138 in the remaining 14-15 overs of the final day’s play. Kiwi skipper Tim Southee said they were happy with the draw and lauded his teammates for the way they played in the Test match.

After two back-to-back Test series defeats, the pressure is on Pakistan to not succumb to one more series defeat. This is something that they can use to their advantage. The Kiwis have more experience than the Pakistan side and that is something that might work in favor of the decider.

The likes of Kane Williamson, Tom Latham, and Devon Conway are in good form. Southee with his experience is a key figure in the XI as well. The side might look to make one or two changes to their playing XI. In this article, we take a look at New Zealand’s predicted playing XI for the second Test against Pakistan.
