NZ vs PAK Dream11 Team Prediction | 3rd T20I | Pakistan Tour Of New Zealand | 22nd Dec 2020


Pakistan will take on the hosts New Zealand for the 3rd and final T20I on 22nd December, Tuesday. Despite a good batting display, Pakistan couldn’t defend totals as New Zealand have won both the matches to take an unassailable lead of 2-0. In the 2nd T20I, New Zealand just got better with the team’s experienced players Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Kane Williamson coming back. 

Pakistan skipper Babar Azam surely would’ve impacted the result but it is just unfortunate that he is yet to recover from his thumb injury. In his absence, Mohammad Hafeez is taking up the responsibility to score runs. In the last match, he had a brilliant 99*. A lot depends on him in this match as well.

The hosts are looking for a clean sweep as they will take on Pakistan. The New Zealand team has shaped up nicely, especially, in recent times. Even if their big stars fail, the team has managed to win matches consistently.

In the last match, the team’s batting was led by Tim Seifert who scored a brilliant half-century. He had the support from the captain himself who switched gears from his 251 in Tests a few days ago.
