Today cricket match prediction: Mir, Shipley’s debut. pakistan chooses bowling

New Vice-Captain Shan Massoud Couldn’t Find a Place in Pakistan’s Middle Class

Toss Pakistan to face New Zealand

Pakistan captain Babar Azam won the draw and chose to pitch in his first ODI against New Zealand in Karachi.

Legspinner Usama Mir made his debut for Pakistan and New Zealand unleashed fast bowler Henry Shipley to hand him his first cap.

Mill was rewarded with a call-up thanks to his strong showing in the Pakistan Cup, finishing as top wicket taker with a 28 scalp. Mohammad Nawaz’s left arm spin completes Pakistan’s spin attack that also saw Agha Salman’s side his spin.

Vice-captain appointed Shan Massood failed to find a place in the XI as Haris Sohail, Salman and Mohammad Rizwan filled the middle positions. Mohammad Wasim, Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf completed Pakistan’s pace attack despite Naseem being included, with Rauch questioning their workload.

Shipley, meanwhile, was slated to take over from the great Kyle Jamison, who is out through injury. New Zealand also chose to play two spinners in Michael Bracewell and Mitchell Santner, with the option to bring out part-timer Glenn Phillips and captain Kane Williamson.

Pakistan has won his eight of his last nine ODIs and is sixth in the World Cup Super League points table with New Zealand second in his list.

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

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