Pakistani guns to watch out for:
• Babar Azam:
Without a doubt, One of the best current players in world cricket and the captain for Pakistan cricket team across formats is a dangerous gun that NZ should watch out for. Last time Babar played against NZ was during World Cup 19 and he really enjoyed his outing scoring his first World Cup 100 and his 10th in ODI over all. Babar is the highest scorer in T20s this year and was player of the tournament in PSL.
• Shaheen Shah Afridi
The Pakistani pace sensation is a lethal weapon for the side. In his last outing agaisnt NZ he claimed four scalps to his name and bowled an amazing spell, his personal best at that CWC stage at that time. He was been in good form following up his outstanding bowling throughout different leagues and cups. He claimed 3 back to back five-fers. He was also named bowler of the tournament in PSL after becoming the highest wicket taker of the tournament and the second highest wicket taker in T20s this year.
