New Zealand v Pakistan 2nd T20I – Match Preview

New Zealand were comfortable winners in the opening T20I, but will know they should have dismissed Pakistan for a lot less, having had them four wickets down before the fifth over was finished.

Where: Seddon Park, Hamilton

When: Sunday, 20 December 2020

Start time: 11:30 IST (06:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: Seddon Park has hosted T20I cricket for over a decade. More recently, it has been a highly-competitive venue, with the last three T20Is here tied or won by a handful of runs. The captain to win the toss will likely opt to bat first.

Weather conditions: There is a small chance of rain in Hamilton on Sunday, but probably not enough to limit the game a lot, if at all. Temperatures are expected to hang around the mid-20 degrees celsius.

New Zealand v Pakistan 2nd T20I – Squad News

New Zealand will have Kane Williamson and Trent Boult available again. They were rested for the series opener. Williamson should take the captaincy back from Mitchell Santner.

Pakistan looked light on spin in Auckland and could return Usman Qadir to the XI at the expense of a seamer – perhaps Wahab Riaz.

They must insist on a lot more from their top order, which features the young and talented Haider Ali, especially without injured captain Babar Azam.

New Zealand v Pakistan 2nd T20I – Betting Tips and Predictions

Here are more free cricket betting tips and predictions for today’s match. They have been compiled by our experts and are based on generous odds.

Back Boult to Be New Zealand’s Top Bowler

Boult should come back into the XI after a bit of a rest. He might open the bowling with the experienced Tim Southee. What a great combination that is.

Boult was superb for the Delhi Capitals in the recent Indian Premier League and is a good price at 4.0 with 22Bet to be the top bowler for New Zealand in this match.

Choose Khan to Be Pakistan’s Top Batsman

Shadab Khan is captaining the team in the absence of Babar Azam. He didn’t let the added responsibility stop him from being Pakistan’s top-scorer in the first match.

1xBet have Khan priced at 5.5 to do the same again. They also have some good odds for this match’s outright markets.

Make Rauf your Player of the Match

Haris Rauf has become a household name on the world stage since featuring in the BBL for the Melbourne Stars. He’ll be back with them soon, too.

For now, though, his focus is on spearheading Pakistan’s pace attack. His role will be more important if Riaz is rested. Rauf is a longer-odds pick at 15.0 with 22Bet to be the player of the match.
