PAK vs NZ, 3rd T20I: Pakistan Playing 11 (expected) for the 3rd T20I against New Zealand | Pakistan vs New Zealand 3rd T20I

PAK vs NZ, 4th T20I: The fourth T20 International of the ongoing five-match series between hosts New Zealand and visitors Pakistan will take place tomorrow on Friday, January 19th, at Christchurch’s Hagley Oval stadium. The visitors have already lost the series after getting defeated in the first three T20 internationals. The Kiwi’s defeated the Shaheen Shah Afridi-led team by 46 runs, 21 runs, and 45 runs in the first, second, and third T20 Internationals.

The Black Caps will be looking to continue their winning run and win their fourth match in a row in the five-match T20i series, while Pakistan, on the other hand, are going to play for pride and would be hoping to win the remaining two matches of the series and avoid a series whitewash. For the Men in Green, batsman Babar Azam has managed to score three consecutive half-centurys in the first three T20 Internationals played so far, but the Pakistani bowlers have failed to keep Kiwi opener Finn Allen quiet, and he has hammered the Men in Green bowlers in all parts of the stadium. Allen is currently the leading run scorer in the ongoing five-match T20i series between New Zealand and Pakistan, with 245 runs in three matches at an average of 81.66, which includes one century and one half century.

With the ball, Kiwi seamer Tim Southee is the highest wicket taker in this series with 8 scalps, followed by Haris Rauf with 7 wickets and Adam Milne with 6 wickets. In the previous encounter between both teams, the Kiwi’s were put in to bat first once again by Shaheen Shah Afridi, and the hosts took full advantage of the batting conditions on offer as they managed to score 224 runs from their 20 overs and posted a mammoth total of 225 runs on the board for the visitors. Opener Finn Allen once again led the batting unit from the front with his 137 runs knocked from just 62 balls at a brilliant strike rate of 222.97, which included 16 maximums and five fours.

In reply, the visitors were able to score just 179 runs in their quota of 20 overs as Babar Azam (58 runs from 37 balls) was the top scorer for the Men in Green, but to no avail as Pakistan eventually lost the game by 45 runs. Fast bowler Tim Southee picked up two wickets, while Ish Sodhi, Matt Henry, Mitchell Santner, and Lockie Ferguson picked up one wicket each.
