New Zealand vs Pakistan, 3rd T20I: Match Prediction – Who will win today’s match between NZ vs PAK?

New Zealand vs Pakistan will play the 3rd T20I match on 17 January 2023 at University Oval, Dunedin. For Indian sports lovers who wish to watch the game, the 5:30 am start time is early.

Because they have been playing their routines, New Zealand has won their last game against Pakistan by a margin of 21 runs. Finn Allen was named player of the match after smashing five sixes and scoring 74 runs in just 41 balls. The bad news for New Zealand, though, is that Williamson had to leave the game early with a hamstring injury, meaning he will miss every remaining game.After recovering from a knee injury sustained at the World Cup, he elected to head back to the dressing room during the most recent game due to discomfort in his right leg.

Pakistan lost by 21 runs after Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman gave the middle order a fantastic platform to end the match, but they were unable to do justice and could not chase down the total. Since they were unable to secure the series in the previous game, this will be their last opportunity to do so by winning the following one. They haven’t scored in the last two games, so the middle order needs to step up.
