PAK vs NZ 3rd T20I Playing 11: In what promises to be a thrilling encounter, Pakistan and New Zealand are all set to clash against each other in the third T20 International of the five-match T20i series tomorrow at Dunedin’s University Oval Stadium. The hosts are currently leading the five-match series 2-0, and they would be poised to secure the five-match T20 International series by winning the third T20i game, while on the other hand, the third T20i is going to be a must-win match for the Men in Green if they want to stay alive in the series.

The Black Caps will be missing their normal skipper, Kane Williamson. This is because he hurt his hamstring while running during the second T20I and will be out for the remainder of the series, adding to his previous injury troubles. In Williamson’s absence, experienced fast bowler Tim Southee will be handling the leadership duties for the Kiwi’s.

Pakistan has already announced their playing XI for the third T20 International. The team has three changes, with Mohammad Wasim Jr, Zaman Khan, and Mohammad Nawaz replacing Aamir Jamal, Usama Mir, and Abbas Afridi.
