Kiwis are in/safe as far as the knockouts go. Markhors need to keep on winning. The game is at Edgbaston, where NZ beat SA in a low scoring game. Weather is expected to be good. 

 

For Kiwis, Guptill and Munro are scheduled to fire. Taylor is shaping up well, while Williamson is in great form. Boult and Ferguson will look forward to bowling on a surface that could suit them. For Markhors, Amir has stood out as a consistent performer with the ball. Wahab has had a few good performances but mainly vs. weaker sides. Babar Azam has been relatively good with the bat but rest of the batting has functioned like a revolving chair, therefore, it is difficult to predict who will have a good game. 

 

Since it is a morning game, the toss-winning captain might opt to bowl first to leverage on the potentially overcast conditions. If NZ finishes 2nd-3rd, it will play SF at this ground, which suits its style. Therefore, it should look to own performances at this ground. While Pak will bank on its unpredictability.

Pakistan has best chance of semis given England has tough matches. They win this and then they will feel confident of beating Ban and Afg

why do you guys over rate Pakistanis I fail to understand? :hmmmm2:  Pakistan also has tough games including this one vs NZ and they have a pretty ordinary NRR to boot

+1. The forum used to be so different about a decade ago. If anything, Pak has regressed further during this period!!

Why are people overrating this mediocre Pakistan team ? :no:

 

They will lose to both kiwis and Toygers. Even Afghans will fancy their chances. 

 

One game against a pathetic uninterested South African side and suddenly they're invincibles. :stupid:

Pakistan's 6th Match of 2019 WC: Beat SA by 49 Runs & Player of the Match is Haris Sohail.

 

 

Uncanny Resemblance! #CWC19

If the same thing continues, Sarfaraz will become Pakistan's PM.

I think its going to be brilliant match. Pakistan will be a bit conservative if they bat first as they will look to keep wickets to get to a good total again. Its a bigger game for them than it is for NZ. But then NZ haven't qualified yet either. 

 

Making of a great game.

Arguably the biggest game so far of this world cup. 

 

 

Fully expect Poyzz to royally bottle it. :cantstop:

I think they may do well. Amir seems to be back in form. As we saw in BD and SA game, NZ made a simple job hard. Had mushfiqur made the runout instead of screwing it up, it would have been the end for NZ's innings. PAK has the bowlers to defend WTV total. However, if chasing, I expect them to bottle it up aswell.

Man to man, NZ is a much better team than Pak. It should be a thumping.

that does not matter. this is Pak ur talking about.  its notthing rational about  them. they pick up their game to an exponential level at the big stage.

 

if ur an Indian like I am, u shud be scared and hope that Pak dont make semi. bcos once Pak make semi, they are gona win it all
