Pakistan tour to New Zealand - Preview

Pakistan down under after a span of an epoch. Last time, It was partly held in UAE where they played One-Day Internationals. Pakistan will play a series of 3 T20s, 2 Tests and 6 ODIs with New Zealand. It is an important series for either teams, as, preparations are in full-swing for the World Cup 2011. Pakistan are already 0-1 in T20, but as a fan of unpredictable team, I still feel that there will be something more ‘unpredictable’; and that must be Pakistan’s win. Kiwis, as compared to Pakistan, have not been a good side, this year; white-washed by Bengal Tigers, and then by Indians in ODI series. So, Pakistan must not forget that they are playing with side, which is already in turmoil; any loss would be ‘fatal’ for Pakistan.

Watch out for….

Umar Akmal & Shahid Afridi are mostly regarded as ‘danger’ in Pakistan’s batting line-up, but there is another danger in their line-up; and he’s none other than Abdul Razzaq. His Innings of 109 runs from 72 balls against Protease will not be forgotten.

As far as bowlers are concerned, Pakistan will mainly rely on their fast-bowlers like Akthar and Gul. Gul has had a good performances, this year.
