New Zealand vs Pakistan scorecard

Pakistan, on the other hand, is still struggling in the tournament and will require to win all of their remaining games. New Zealand are unbeaten in the tournament so far and they have played like real champions. "This isn't something new, but we need to overcome this problem", he added.

New Zealand will square off against Pakistan in match no 33 of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

First innings: Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi rattled the top and middle order in a fiery spell but combative half-centuries from James Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme helped New Zealand post 237/6.

With Haris Sohail starring with the bat at Lord's and the Amir sitting atop the list of ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019 wicket-takers, a tight encounter could well ensue against Williamson's in-form side.

Pakistan are making a late surge in the direction of the World Cup's semi-final spots, with the winds of their victorious 1992 campaign possibly behind them once more if the form book is anything to go by.

But no team is unbeatable and New Zealand looked vulnerable against South Africa and the West Indies but it was skipper Williamson's twin hundreds which helped them seal the wins.

She assisted Alex Morgan for USA's first goal of the tournament and has kept 2 clean sheets in the process. The shot was deflected by Swedish defender Jonna Andersson, who was credited with an own goal.

It was New Zealand's biggest sixth-wicket stand in World Cup history - breaking the record set at the same ground a week ago, and 85 runs came off the final 10 overs to give New Zealand a marginally defendable total to bowl at.

They raised a 126-run stand for the fourth wicket after Mohammed Hafeez's dismissal off a part-time spinner, yet again, raised eyebrows and Mitchell Santner looked nearly unplayable.

When asked if Pakistan - who bounced back on Sunday after a demoralising defeat from India and kicked South Africa out of the tournament - could make it to the World Cup semifinals, Ahmed said: "Pakistan can do anything". While for Pakistan, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Shadab Khan are the top picks. The standout member of the Men in Green's pace attack so far, Amir's form after a hard start to 2019 has been held up as a reference point for others within the squad - particularly fellow paceman Hasan Ali. The Edgbaston pitch was two-paced for the New Zealand-South Africa game and the trapped moisture could render similar qualities to the surface for tomorrow. Guptill made just five, chopping Mohammad Amir's first delivery into his stumps, while Munro got through to 12, before slashing Shaheen Afridi to slip.

In between, New Zealand did manage to generate brief pressure.

Bowlers: For New Zealand, Mitchell Santner, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Trent Boult are the right picks for Dream11. We knew 240 wasn't an easy target so our message to the batsmen was to bat for 50 overs. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but it was a bad misread of a previously covered pitch, a safe option for an unbeaten team.
