Form of skipper Babar Azam is major concern for Pakistan. He will try to get back in the knockout stage. Rizwan, Shan Masood and Iftikar played some good innings. Shadab Khan will again play a major role. Shaheen Afridi has got his form back, will surely cause trouble to the opponents.


Glenn Philips has been a game changer for New Zealand. They would be expecting another fine knock from him in the semifinal. Kane Williamson has returned back to form is major relief to the team. Santner, Southee, Ish Sodhi, Ferguson and Boult have looked like a solid unit and will look to restrict Pakistan to a low total.
