A Pakistan win here would be brilliant
Think you'll get that wish.

Pakistan match-up well against New Zealand, although NZ have a higher ceiling if things go their way from the start.

NZ slight favourites across the main betting agencies at $1.80 to Pakistan's $2.00, so decent value for the latter.


U19 Debutant
My forecast on Team NZ's performance broken out by player

1) Finn Allen - will fall cheaply as the occassion will be too much for his experience level
2) Conway - Seems to have been found out by the opposition video analysts (wide outside off stump) Look for 20 off 20 balls and then out.
3) Kane - has the old girl come into form? He will top score for New Zealand and has nerves or steel and always up for a big occassion. 60 off 42 balls.
4) GP - His habit of getting dropped can't continue. Out for a bright and breezy 18 off 10 balls.
5) Mitchell - it will be up to play the T20 game of his life for NZ to win as someone will need to give Kane a stand while scoring quickly themselves.
6) Neesham - Out cross batting one of the Pakistani quicks and caught at deep mid wicket for 6 off 4 balls.
7) Santner - will do everything asked of him at number 7

New Zealand all out for 155 and what will follow will be a low scoring thriller which could go either way.
The above prediction I am most sure of is Finn Allen to not come off. Finals and playoffs are next level cricket of a higher standard than regular round T20 world cup matches.
