Analysis: New Zealand Vs Pakistan 2023

The reason to be at such a weak place is that most of the Kiwi Players have gone to India for IPL. So it’s a sort of B team that is playing against Pakistan. If main players like Latham, injured Williamson and others would have been there, it was difficult for Pakistan to get those easy wins.

Pakistan is taking full advantage of that. The batters as well as bowlers are doing good in the game. In tomorrow’s match, Haris Rauf would again shine like before but also the chance of Shaheen to get wickets is not faded. In batting, Babar is looking great but yes in the next match, his hunger for runs of Rizwan is also prominent. He can score good in the 3rd match.
