Highlights of Pakistan vs. New Zealand in the 1st Twenty20: Kane Williamson wins the toss, and New Zealand will bat first.
New Zealand, on the other hand, started their Super 12 campaign for the T20 World Cup 2022 with a huge win over the current world champions, Australia. Williamson’s team came in second at the T20 World Cup in 2021. Even though New Zealand lost to England, they were able to win Super 12 Group 1 and move on to the first semifinal.
Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam hasn’t been in the best shape lately, scoring only 39 runs in five games. However, batting coach and team mentor Matthew Hayden said at a pre-game press conference on Tuesday, November 8, that he and Mohammad Rizwan will continue to open the innings. Babar will try to make his team as good as the one that won the 1992 World Cup. That team beat New Zealand in the semifinals and went on to win the whole thing.
