The home team will be coming in this much full of confidence after clinching the series with a thumping nine-wicket win in the second T20I which was played in Hamilton on Sunday.

The team management will be extremely pleased in seeing the performances of some of the youngsters against a formidable team in the shortest format of the game.

New Zealand Form and Team News

After wrapping up the series, the Black Caps would’ve ideally liked to test the team’s bench strength but with only 13 players squad announced for the second and third T20I, there is very little room to maneuver.

In the batting department, the home team will be relying once again on Captain Kane Williamson, veteran opener Martin Guptill and in-form wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Seifert to score bulk of the runs and put the opposition on the back foot.

On the bowling front, Kiwis will be hoping to see their pace attack consisting of Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Kyle Jamieson and Scott Kuggeleijn to dismantle the opposition’s fragile batting unit and put the home team in a commanding position once again.

Pakistan Team Form and News:

With the series already lost, the Men in Green’s team management is likely to give chances to players sitting on the bench for the final game.

The most concerning aspect for the coaching staff will be the performances of highly-rated youngsters like Haider Ali, Khushdil Shah and Abdullah Shafique who looked completely out of sorts in slightly difficult batting conditions.

Top-order batsman Shafique, wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan and one of the pacers are likely to make way for veteran all-rounder Iftikhar Ahmed, former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and leg-spinner Usman Qadir.

In the batting department, the onus will be once again on the likes of in-form Mohammad Hafeez and captain Shadab Khan to score bulk of the runs whereas on the bowling front, the team management will be banking on pacers Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Rauf to do bulk of the damage with the ball in hand.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Pakistan have performed under-par in the first two matches where at no stage they looked like a team capable of winning any crucial moments.

People might point out that is largely because of the absence of their regular captain and star batsman Babar Azam but in reality, the difference in class between the teams is very evident.

Therefore, the prediction is for New Zealand to continue their winning momentum and complete the series sweep on Tuesday.

Tip 1 – Tim Seifert’s run-scoring spree in the T20 format.

With back-to-back half-centuries against Pakistan, wicket-keeper Tim Seifert has been standout performer for the side in this T20I series. With Ross Taylor dropped from the T20I squad and Martin Guptill’s lean run, Tim Seifert has certainly raised his game for New Zealand and produced notable scores on a regular basis. So we are backing Tim Seifert to score 40 or more runs @ 2.00.

Tip 2 – Kane Williamson to continue his merry ways with the bat

New Zealand Skipper Kane Williamson has scored three half-centuries in his last four T20I matches. Due to splendid half-century, Williamson helped New Zealand cruise to a comprehensive win in the 2nd game and clinch the T20I series

With 217 runs in previous four matches at an average of 72.33, we are backing Kane Williamson to score more than 35 or more runs @1.80.


Expect New Zealand to complete a clean sweep over Pakistan in the T20I series.

  1. Tim Seifert to score 40 more runs – New Zealand @2.00.
  2. Kane Williamson to score 35 runs or more – New [email protected].
