Pakistan and New Zealand are set to lock horns at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney on Wednesday, November 9. The first semifinal of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 starts at 7:00 pm local/8:00 am GMT/1:30 pm IST.
Going with the head-to-head record in T20Is, many would pick Babar Azam’s Pakistan as favourites. They have had the better of New Zealand in previous ICC tournaments, and outplayed them in the Tri-series just before the marquee event. But the things lacking earlier this month seem to have changed in the Kane Williamson-led New Zealand. There’s a hunger for victory, and they have proved the same by registering comprehensive wins at the Super 12 stage.
Fans worldwide are excited to witness another Pakistan versus New Zealand clash this year.
Head to head record
Pakistan have won 17 of the 28 T20Is between them, including four of their six games in previous editions of T20 World Cups.
