Pakistan vs New Zealand Dream 11 T20 World Cup 2021

Babar Azam led Pakistan will surely be high headed as they not only clinched an emphatic 10 wicket win against India but also washed off their win-drought against the men in blue in the world cup. As the charged up 'men in green' head further in the tournament, they take on New Zealand in their second Super 12 fixture on October 26, Tuesday. The match will be played at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium at 7:30 PM (IST). India will have a close eye on Pakistan vs New Zealand clash as the men in blue aim for a comeback when they take on the Kiwis in their second match of the tournament. 

New Zealand, on the other hand, have a lot to address as they lost both of their warm-up matches. While Pakistan have already played their first match of the tournament, for the Kiwis, it will be their campaign opener.

Wicketkeeper (Mohammad Rizwan, Devon Conway)

Rizwan's fiery knock against India is still fresh in fans' minds and that's why is a guaranteed pick for the match. Devon Conway too merits a spot given his tremendous form since international debut back in June while his T20 stats are impressive as well.

Batter (Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Kane Williamson)

Similar to Rizwan, Babar Azam is a certain name given his form since the warm-up matches. Also, Fakhar Zaman is hard to miss from the XI as he piled up runs in the warm-up phases. Among the Kiwis, captain Kane Williamson finds his place in our XI given he is a big match player and has been among runs recently.

All-rounder (James Neesham, Shadab Khan)

James Neesham has been picking wickets since turning up for Mumbai Indians late in the IPL 2021 and found rhythm with the bat as well in the last practice match against neighbours Australia. Shadab Khan has been a key wicket-taking bowler for Pakistan being the only wrist spinner in the line-up.

Bowler (Shaheen Afridi, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult)

Shaheen Afridi is among the favourite pick for the match given how heavily he came down on the batting might of India star-studded line-up with the new ball. Lockie Ferguson and Trent Boult, on the other hand, are seasoned campaigners of the IPL and are the right ingredients for the Sharjah pitch to exploit in.

Dream 11 prediction: Devon Conway, Babar Azam (c), Fakhar Zaman, Kane Williamson (vc), Shadab Khan, James Neesham, Shaheen Afridi, Lockie Ferguson and Trent Boult.

WEATHER REPORT

It's going to be a warm night with the temperature fluctuating in the region of 30-25 degrees Celsius. There will be no respite from humidity for the players as it will be as high as 51 per cent with no warning of rain or sandstorm during the match.
