PAK vs NZ Match Preview
Pakistan and New Zealand will once again lock horns in the 2nd T20 match today at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore. With Pakistan carrying the momentum from their massive 88-run victory in the first T20 match, they will aim to continue their winning form. On the other hand, New Zealand is determined to bounce back and level the five-match series. Earlier Pakistan emerged victorious during first T20 match between the two teams beating the visiting team by massive 88 runs.
Pakistan continues to hold an advantage, having defeated New Zealand in five of their last six encounters, including yesterday’s T20I and a decisive seven-wicket victory in the T20 World Cup semi-final in Sydney. The stadium has also been a favorable location for Pakistan, as they have now won 11 of the 19 matches held here since 2015, with an average of 8.13 runs scored per over. Their only loss in this streak occurred during a tri-series in Christchurch, which Pakistan eventually won, just prior to the World Cup.
The Gaddafi Stadium is set to host two more T20I matches on 15th, and 17th April. Following these games, the action will move to Rawalpindi, where the final two matches of the series will take place on April 20th and 24th.
