In the 19th match of the T20 World Cup, New Zealand will face Pakistan in Sharjah. Pakistan has dominated New Zealand in T20Is in the past. 

PAK v NZ: Match Details


  • Date – Tuesday, October 26, 2021
  • Time – 7:30 PM IST
  • Venue – Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah

PAK v NZ Match Preview:

Pakistan had a terrific start to the tournament when they chased down 152 with ten wickets in hand. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan played fluent innings and looked in 100% control throughout the chase. Fakhar Zaman will be the player to watch out for. 

Shaheen Afridi was unplayable in the last match, especially with the new ball. Haris Rauf bowled brilliantly in the death overs and is a potential wicket-taker. 

New Zealand didn't win any of their warmup games. The batting hasn't looked convincing. Martin Guptill will be crucial at the top order. Glenn Philips could prove to be the game-changer. 

At Sharjah, Ish Sodhi will be a threat to the opposition. He is likely to be supported by Mitchell Santner. Lockie Ferguson is the key bowler.
