New Zealand is the same team that rejected to play in opposition to Pakistan at the eleventh hour quoting ‘security reasons’, putting up and going about an hour ahead of their first one-dayer last month. After that England too had canceled its tour to Pakistan.
Pakistani captain Babar Azam and coach Saqlain Mushtaq also highlighted in post-match talks with the team to celebrate victory versus arch-rival India but remain engaged on the next match.
Specialists said that Pakistan will need to rapidly adapt from the area of high pressure of their historic win.
For the Pakistan cricket team, beating India was like going the monkey around off their back, and now is the time to aim at the next game next to New Zealand.
Kiwis captain Kane Williamson remembering the postponement of the Pakistan tour just prior to the T20 World Cup said,” “There are a lot of good relationships in the two teams. Over the years they’ve been a lot compared to each other, and a total of players have played with each other, as well.”

“After noticing Pakistan’s performing against India, the Pakistanis are now favorite to win,” he said and add up, “I am sure the game will be played in the right spirit.”
Important to note that recently voted chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ramiz Raja before now said that New Zealand will be one of the targets in the T20 World Cup.
“We had one team in our target, our neighbors (India), now add two more teams, New Zealand and England,” Raja said last month.
These two teams have played 24 T20I matches so much. Knocked out of which 14 have been won by the Pakistan side and the Kiwis have won the other 10 games. As far as T20 World Cups are affected, these two teams have come together five times and the head-to-head record is 3-2 in Pakistan’s favorite.
