2nd T20I, New Zealand VS Pakistan: Match Details
- Date – 20th December 2020
- Time – 11:30 AM IST
- Venue – Seddon Park, Hamilton
New Zealand VS Pakistan Match Preview:
Tim Seifert led New Zealand's batting in the last game. Now that Kane Williamson will be back, the batting looks more solid. It will be interesting to see if Darryl Mitchell will get a place in an already set batting line up.
Tim Southee will also be back and is likely to replace Scott Kuggeleijn. Debutant Jacob Duffy was the man of the match in the last game. With Trent Boult also available for the game, management will have to take a hard call to include him in the playing XI.
Pakistan had a batting order collapse in the last game. However, it is unlikely they will replace any batsman. Shadab Khan played a fighting knock while Faheem Ashraf played a powerful cameo. Shaheen Afridi will be crucial for Pakistan with the new ball.
New Zealand has welcomed its four specialist players back and is looking stronger than ever.
