In the only game of the day at the Twenty20 World Cup New Zealand will face off with Pakistan in Mohali. New Zealand has impressed in their first two games that with India and Australia. They have assessed spot on the conditions of the pitch in those games and they have options for wickets that favor spin and for wickets that favor fast bowling (as should happen today). Alongside a potent bowling attack they have a very well balanced batting lineup even without their icon, Brendon McCullum. Pakistan seems unable to deliver when it matters the most, they have quality in their ranks but they cannot fire as a team. They will probably miss one of their most important and experienced players, Mohammad Hafeez, also Wahab Riaz's condition will be assessed before the game. For me there is no doubt that the better team and the team that played better in their first two games is New Zealand; they really look strong and unless someone in the Pakistan lineup provides a scintillating performance.
