New Zealand Xi:
Fergus Lellman and William O’Rourke might sit on the bench as Fraser Sheat and Henry Shipley are likely to take their spot. No other changes are expected. The top order must provide a good start to the side so that the middle order can avoid pressure and play naturally. Bowlers were a bit expensive in the last game and now they must improve their line and length to avoid unnecessary runs. This is the team information available from the New Zealand XI dugout for the upcoming affair. This is the team news available from New Zealand’s dugout.
Top-order batsmen gave the team a superb start with the likes of Shafique, Zeeshan, and Ali Haider in the previous game, Talat played a vital role in the middle order and added crucial 44 runs to make it easier for bowlers to defend the target. Later, bowlers performed their duties well and booked the Kiwis on just 130. No changes are expected from this combination.
