Pakistan vs New Zealand Preview, World Cup 2019 Match 33, Weather Report, Playing 11, Dream 11

An uphill task yet to be achieved by the green shirts is to strike a victory against Kiwis in the coming match, and win the games against Afghanistan as well as Bangladesh in order to remain in contention for the semi-final qualifications.

Match details

Match 33: New Zealand v Pakistan

Venue: Edgbaston, Brimingham

Date: Wednesday, 26 June

Time: 02:30pm PST, 09:30am GMT

Even the success in the coming three matches does not guarantee the Pakistani team a ticket to the semi-final, as it also heavily depends on the results of other matches.

A victory against South Africa, their second in the mega event in England, has pumped up confidence in the Pak team and they seem ready to take on Kiwis challenge in a decent manner and to go all out for a success by showcasing collective efforts, but lax fielding still remains a worry for them.

Because of its superb run, New Zealanders are at the top of the points table with eleven points. After playing six matches, Pakistan are at the seventh place on the points table in the 10-team event, which portrays their dismal performance in the world tournament.

Display of aggressive cricket with precision and responsibility can lead Pak team to success against New Zealand in a challenging encounter.

Weather report

There is rain expected on match eve, but by the time Wednesday comes around, the weather should have eased out considerably.
