  6. Player Analysis:

    Batsmen Analytics

    Kane Williamson of NZ has an AVG 32.64 and SR 125.18. Another batsman of NZ Colin Munro has an AVG 29.17 and SR 144.16.

    On the other hand, Mohammad Rizwan of Pakistan has an AVG 28.31 and SR 115.57. Another top batsman Fakhar Zaman – has an AVG 26.52 and SR 134.98.

    Bowlers Analytics

    Shaheen Afridi of Pakistan has an AVG 22.96 and his Econ 7.72. Another top bowler Wahab Riaz’s AVG 21.66 and his Econ 7.18.

    NZ has a powerful batting unit and a very strong middle-order. Pakistan has good bowlers but could face challenge in the home ground of NZ. Moreover, the absence of Babar Azam could be vital.

  7. Pitch Support:

    Eden Park Oval is a graveyard for the bowlers owing to its shorter boundaries and a placid track. Almost 360 runs were scored in just 32 overs in the last game played here. We expect a run feast of 200+ runs in this match.

However, things could be change in some terms like weather condition, or injury cases, mental health of players in a team, etc. But, these are exceptional cases at all.
