The 19th match of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021 will take place between Pakistan and New Zealand at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Tuesday, October 26.
Pakistan will enter the match with supreme confidence after a spectacular 10-wicket defeat over their arch-rivals India in Dubai on Sunday. On the other hand, the Black Caps will be playing their first game of the multi-team tournament.
Played: 24 | PAK won: 14 | NZ won: 10 | No result: 0
The Sri Lanka-Bangladesh and Afghanistan-Scotland matches have given enough evidence that the new pitches in Sharjah are batting paradise, and something similar can be expected in Tuesday’s fixture. Dew will be a major factor so team winning the toss will feel more comfortable in chasing.
