Pakistan vs New Zealand 

2nd ODI Match Prediction & Tips 

Time: 11 Jan, 03:00 PM (IST)
Series: 2nd ODI Match
Venue: National Stadium – Karachi, Pakistan    

PAK vs NZ Dream11 Prediction:

  • Babar Azam was in excellent form yet again in the first ODI and we are backing the captain to be Pakistan’s highest run scorer against New Zealand. Naseem Shah took his second ODI five-wicket haul on Monday and the pace bowler is a strong choice for Pakistan’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • Tom Latham looked the most comfortable of all of New Zealand’s batters on Monday. He is a strong choice for New Zealand’s highest run scorer in the second ODI. Tim Southee has 692 international wickets to his name and the quick bowler is our tip for New Zealand’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • Naseem Shah was the standout performer on this pitch in the first ODI and we recommend backing him to take over 1.5 wickets in this clash.

Pitch Report:
With both teams having more knowledge of the pitch, we expect any total of 280+ to be hard to chase down in this match. There is slow turn on this wicket for the spinners.

Toss Prediction:
With similar conditions as in the first ODI, we predict that Babar Azam and Kane Williamson will both choose to field first in this match.

Winning Chances:

Although New Zealand has been very competitive and fully deserved to draw the Test series, their lack of experience batting and bowling with a white ball in Pakistan showed in the first game. We expect the Black Caps to put in a stronger display on this ODI but can not see them producing enough with bat or ball to beat the hosts. Our prediction is for Pakistan to win again.

Pakistan are favorites to beat New Zealand

PAK Key Players:

Babar Azam – 

The skipper hit five fours and a six in his 66 runs from 82 balls in the first ODI, his 40th score of 50+ from 91 ODI innings.

Mohammad Rizwan – 

The keeper-batter top scored for the hosts on Monday with a perfectly paced 77 runs from 86 balls. He will be looking forward to batting on the same pitch in this ODI.

Naseem Shah – 

The pace bowler very rarely lets his country down and has taken 14 wickets across his last three internationals (two Tests and one ODI).

NZ Key Players:

Tom Latham – 

The 30 year old keeper-batter hit 42 runs from 52 balls for the Black Caps in the opening game. He hit three fours and continues to be one of their most consistent batters.

Michael Bracewell – 

The all-rounder was the pick of New Zealand’s players on Monday and will relish the opportunity to go again on the same pitch. He hit 43 runs from 42 balls before taking 2-44.

Tim Southee – 

The experienced pace bowler dismissed Haris Sohail in the 45th over of the first game and continues to be a threat across all formats.

PAK vs NZ Team Forms:
PAK Team Form:

New Zealand have won only one of their last five ODIs and the result of Monday’s game was not in doubt long before the finish.

NZ Team Form:
Pakistan have now won nine ODIs in a row and a tenth victory on the bounce will see them confirm the series.
