After handing four losses to Bangladesh, New Zealand and Pakistan gear up for the Finals. This will be their last encounter before heading into the World Cup, and both sides are likely to turn up with the eleven that should be seen during their first games at the mega event. With a lot of anxiety and tension around the tournament, given the competition on offer, the upcoming game will be a wonderful dress rehearsal for the real one.

NZ vs PAK Key Players
Mohammad Rizwan is in really good form with consecutive scores above fifty. He is looking really consistent and should enjoy the flatter and smaller grounds in New Zealand. He is off to a good start this series and continues to look unstoppable with the bat.
Devon Conway is enjoying a good run of form, and is consistently providing runs at the top. He is sweeping the ball pretty well too, and will have a huge role to play in the Finals and upcoming T20 World Cup.

NZ vs PAK Match Tips
Both the encounters between Pakistan and New Zealand left a lot to be wondered. There are some holes for both sides but with Devon Conway in a rich vein of form, his influence will be huge and this should give New Zealand an advantage despite Pakistan’s openers doing just as well.
