New Zealand V/s Pakistan Team Prediction- Fantasy Cricket Tips

After a long haul, a team is touring Pakistan. The uncertainty around the schedule is overwhelming owing to the recent developments in Afghanistan. Although the independent security consultant of New Zealand has given the green light to the series, the pressure on the visiting team will remain constant. New Zealand last played Pakistan at their home and dominated the visitors in both formats. In T20Is, New Zealand took an unassailable lead of 2-1 In tests, the home side had complete domination and had a clean sweep. However, the times have changed; now, you have ready access to cricket odds live.

With New Zealand missing out on their key performers such as Kane Williamson, Kylie Jamieson, Trent Boult, and Lockie Ferguson. The series will be a challenging one to win. Pakistan’s Babar Azam has been riding in his purple patch. On the other hand, Mohammad Rizwan has shown sheer class in the last T20I series. The host side looks strong on paper, but New Zealand is known for its capability to cause setbacks. And the cricket odds live will help you win big if the placed bets go according to the said prediction.

Pitches in Pakistan

Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium is set to host the three match ODI series. The history offers a mix of conditions for the visitors to be aware of. For one, the original pitch used during the earlier stint of Pakistan home matches favored pacers, and the pitch was usually lush green. But, in the last encounter with South Africa, the pitch was being kept clean without a trace of grass. Cricket odds live provided a fantastic earning opportunity to the contestants.

Thereby, Pakistan wishes to make its pitches spin friendly.

The five-match T20Is will take place at Lahore, Gaddafi Stadium. The average first inning score at this arena is 167+. Hence, the pitch will offer a good bounce and looks batsman friendly. Accordingly, teams should look to go all-in during the first six overs and capitalize their innings total. One can earn big by using cricket odds live.
