NZ vs PAK Preview: 

  • Daryl Mitchell has become one of the top batters in international cricket over the last couple of years and hits the ball with excellent timing and out of the middle of the bat. He averages over 50 in ODIs and we are backing him to be New Zealand’s highest run scorer against Pakistan. Trent Boult has 10 wickets so far in the tournament and is a supremely talented bowler with both the new and old ball. The 34 year old has taken 2+ wickets in three of the last five games and Boult is our pick for New Zealand’s top wicket taker in Match 35.
  • Babar Azam averages over 40 across all three international formats but it is in ODIs where he has an average of 56.25. The 29 year old has hit half-centuries in the 2023 Cricket World Cup against India, Afghanistan and South Africa. The skipper is our tip for Pakistan’s highest run scorer against New Zealand. Shaheen Shah Afridi continues to be one of the top bowlers in the tournament and he has already taken 16 wickets in the campaign. He took 3/23 in the last game and he is a strong choice for Pakistan’s top wicket taker on Saturday.
  • Runs will be crucial for New Zealand in this game and we are backing Daryl Mitchell to hit over 31.5 runs in this fixture.

Weather & Pitch Report


The weather forecast is for very humid conditions throughout this match in Bengaluru. Partly cloudy conditions are expected for the opening couple of hours with a strong threat of rain across the rest of the game. 

Pitch Report:

We have seen assistance for the medium pacers and spinners at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium so far although quick bowlers will also enjoy bowling here. A par score will be no higher than 295.

Toss Prediction: 

We have seen a win for Australia batting first and Sri Lanka fielding first at this venue so far in the competition. Both Pakistan and New Zealand like to chase and we expect both skippers to choose to field first if they win the toss.

NZ vs PAK Team NEWS: 

NZ Team News: 

With injuries hitting New Zealand hard over recent games, Kyle Jamieson has been called into the squad and could well come straight into the team for this crucial game against Pakistan in Bengaluru. Captain Kane Williamson remains a week or so away from full fitness.

PAK Team News: 

There were three changes to the Pakistan side ahead of their match with Bangladesh with Fakhar Zaman, Salman Agha and Usama Mir coming in with Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Nawaz and Shadab Khan missing out. Shadab is expected to return from his head injury in this game.

Winning Chances: 

This looks set to be a brilliant contest between two teams who have had poor runs of form in the tournament but still have good chances of finishing in the top four and qualifying for the semi-finals. On a pitch which will give assistance to the bowlers, it could well come down to which of the top batters on show is able to produce a match-winning innings. We are predicting a very close game but think that New Zealand have the better side and are backing them to win this match.

NZ vs PAK Key Players: 

New Zealand 

Daryl Mitchell 

The batting all-rounder hit four fours before being dismissed by South Africa in Match 32. The celebrations by South Africa when he was dismissed show how much of a key player he is for New Zealand.

Glenn Phillips 

The 26 year old has developed into a consistent batter in this format and has hit half-centuries in two of the last four matches against South Africa and Afghanistan.

Trent Boult 

The left-arm pacer will open the bowling in this game and will look to take a big early wicket again as he did when he dismissed Temba Bavuma in the ninth over in the last match.

Mitchell Santner 

The bowling all-rounder went wicketless for the first time in this campaign in the defeat to South Africa. However, he is still averaging a wicket every 29 balls in this tournament.


Fakhar Zaman 

The left-handed 33 year old opener came back into the team and made his presence felt against Bangladesh with 81 runs from 74 balls, an innings which saw him given the Player of the Match Award.

Babar Azam 

The skipper came to the crease with his team on 128 and with the game pretty much won. However, he will need to be back to his best for this critical match with the Black Caps.

Shaheen Shah Afridi 

The left arm pace bowler took his 100th ODI wicket in the win against Bangladesh and also returned a brilliant economy rate of 2.55. He will be key to Pakistan’s success in this game.

Mohammad Wasim 

The 22 year old right-arm fast medium bowler has impressed since coming into the team two games ago. So far he has a strike-rate of 21.80 from 18.1 overs.

NZ vs PAK Team Forms: 

NZ Team Form: 

With injuries combining with a downturn in form, it was no surprise to see New Zealand thrashed by 190 runs in their last game.

PAK Team Form: 

Pakistan were on a four game losing streak in the tournament before their convincing victory over Bangladesh in Kolkata earlier this week.
