Cricket match prediction today: Pakistan seeks ODI spark after fruitless home testing season

Big picture: Pakistan, NZ build for ODI World Cup

A triple win is a chance for both the host nation and New Zealand to rethink their plans for the ODI World Cup

Very little seems to be progressing in his recent ODI series, especially in this three-way battle of his between Pakistan and New Zealand. Both teams would go to the World Cup later that year, and staging their limited overgames as desserts rather than hors d’oeuvres makes it seem like it doesn’t matter.

This is especially true for Pakistan, who will end a difficult home season dominated by red ball problems in his last three games. Most recently played his ODI cricket for Rotterdam. This is his 3-game series against Holland in August. It’s been the most consistently performing format in the last 12 months, winning 8 out of 9 games, but with a patchwork of games thrown in every few months, we’re seeing patterns is difficult to do. However, as this year is the year of the World Cup, the format is expected to gain momentum in the next nine months or so.

His ODI record for New Zealand is equally impregnable, although matches are scheduled at irregular intervals. The weakening of the opposition during this period undoubtedly contributed to this record, with nine of her ten wins for New Zealand coming against Holland, Ireland, Scotland and the West Indies. Her runaway 3–0 win streak against Australia provided a reality check, but they fought back with a win over India and without the rain he most likely would have won two.

They travel to India for his series of White Balls, which follows this series. This is especially true in years when the World Cup is held in India.

In the spotlight: Haris Sohail and Henry Shipley

Haris Sohail last played his ODI in October 2020, but at first glance his recall was not an obvious choice. Pakistan has gotten most of his ODIs over the past year, with Sohail not providing the firepower he needs in the middle order late innings. Khushdil Shah and Mohammad Nawaz have recently taken on the role, as Babar Azam and his Imam-ul-Haq tend to deepen the game. It is not a clear sign of appeal that he scored a total of 129 runs in four matches against Pakistan in his Cup which recently ended. But Sohail has international experience and pedigree, and if he can add some spice to a middle position that can sometimes seem hollow compared to the top three, he’ll do something that Pakistan actually needs on the ODI side. You may be able to bring it to the table.

Henry Shipley is tall and can move the ball. This isn’t the beginning of a nursery rhyme, it’s an open invitation to compare Kyle Jamison to New Zealand’s fast bowler Canterbury.His bowling all-rounder has been named to his team for white balling his ODIs in Pakistan and India. it was done. The six-foot-tall fast bowler should be relied on to extract bounce off Karachi’s flat surface, but don’t expect it to be used solely as an enforcer for the middle overs. He took Canterbury’s new ball from time to time and managed to gain momentum and seams. Even if there are probably fewer in southern Pakistan than in New Zealand’s South Island.

Team news: Masood is Pakistan’s new vice-captain

Pakistan has a new vice-captain in Shan Massood. This could put him in his 11th place as a center hitter. Harris should be part of the team too.

Pakistan (probable): 1 Imam-ul-Haq, 2 Fakhar Zaman, 3 Babar Azam (capt), 4 Shan Masood/Mohammad Nawaz, 5 Haris Sohail, 6 Mohammad Rizwan (wk), 7 Salman Ali Agha, 8 Usama Mir, 9 Mohammad Wasim, 10 Haris Rauf, 11 Naseem Shah.

Doug Bracewell has been named to replace Matt Henry in the ODIs of Pakistan and India, but will be unavailable for Monday’s game. New Zealand head coach Gary Stead has confirmed that Bracewell will arrive in Karachi on Wednesday.

New Zealand: (probable): 1 Finn Allen, 2 Devon Conway, 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Daryl Mitchell, 5 Tom Latham (wk), 6 Glenn Phillips, 8 Michael Bracewell, 8 Ish Sodhi 9 Tim Southee, 10 Lockie Ferguson 11 Henry Shipley
