Pakistan vs New Zealand Match Preview
Pakistan are going to start their T20 World Cup campaign against New Zealand. The match will be played at Pallekele on 23 September 2012 at 3 pm local time. Pakistan team came in this tournament with very high hopes and with a good confident beating Australia 2-1 in T20 series in Dubai.
They also won their 1st warm-up match against India. But the loss against England shake them a little. They are the strong contenders of this ICC T20 World Cup as they already won it once and they are the most successful team in this event. Pakistan have played two finals and once Semi-Final of T20 World Cup out of total 3 mega events.
New Zealand won their 1st match of this tournament beating Bangladesh easily. B Macullum scored a world record century and their fast bowlers use the conditions well. The last time they played each other at same venue is in the World Cup 2011 where New Zealand won easily and that was the last match for Pakistani speed legend Shoab Akhtar.
Pakistan and New Zealand are the only teams to play each other in all T20 World Cups. They played each other 3 times before this and Pakistan leading the tally with 2-1. They played 8 matches over all and Pakistan won 5 out of 8.
Pakistan side is very unpredictable. They can defeat any side on their day and can loss by the huge margin on their bad day. They have many match winners in their side. Especially their spin bowlers Saeed Ajamal and Shahid Afridi can take the match away from opposition. Afridi is going through the bad form but he will be back to his best very soon. They have some good impact players in their side who can win the game single handed like Razzaq and Akmal brothers.
New Zealand hopes to get the seaming conditions in Pallekele as pitch and weather will suit them. They will definitely hoping to play better against the Magician Ajmal. Ross Taylor will once again hoping to perform well as he did in the 2011 World Cup. New Zealand has a better fast bowling attack than the Pakistan.

Saeed Ajmal will be impact player for the Pakistan side as he already shown in the past 3 years. He is the most successful bowler in the World Cricket and the top wicket taker in T20 cricket. Pakistan need Shahid Afridi to fire early in the tournament which make them more strong.
New Zealand once again hoping a great Inning by Brendon McCullum because when ever he performs New Zealand won that match easily. Fast bowler Tim Southee will make hard for Pakistan batsman’s as he did in the past.
