Team news & latest updates.
Kane Williamson led the Kiwis to an unbeaten run so far this with his leadership and batting skills. But still, they lack a strong batting partnership between wickets. Ross Taylor is another strong contender in batting. Colin de Grandhomme in the middle order will be crucial if the team is chasing. Pace attack seems deadly with Boult and Lockie Ferguson, they have to put a great show to stop Pakistan’s top order early in the innings.
Opening batsmen have to deliver a quality knock, it’s high time. Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq have not yet made an impact in this world cup as Babar Azam and Hafeez is doing well in scoring which is taking team into victory. Mohammed Amir is leading the pace attack with support from Wahab Riaz. Replacing Shoaib Malik is been the best decision so far for Pakistan.

Our Match Prediction.
Our pick is New Zealand, they seem a more balanced team with unbeaten run in this world cup. Pakistan should pull out a miracle this Wednesday to have a win against Kiwis. Pitch seems to support pacers a lot so will be a low scoring chase.
