NZ will square off against PAK in the 4TH match of the ongoing tri-series on the 11th of Oct as we head to its business end. The hosts plummeted Bangladesh in their previous outing to make a quick recovery following their loss against the Pakistan in their opening fixture.
Meanwhile, PAK are sitting handsomely at the summit with two wins in 2 so far in the triangular series. Babar side looks more settled in their approach with the bowling and batting coming good just at the right time for the Subcontinent side.
The Kiwis will be eyeing revenge after their earlier loss against the same opposition after thrashing Bangladesh.
Venue: Hagley Oval, Christchurch
Date & Time: October 11, 7:30 AM IST
While the shorter boundaries at the venue entice the batters, the bowlers, especially the pacers, enjoy bowling with the new ball at the surface. With a bit of movement on offer for the new ball bowlers, the team winning the toss will be inclined to bowl first after winning the toss, given the potency in their bowling ranks.
