New Zealand vs Pakistan 3rd T20I – Pakistan is gearing up for a tough challenge as they try to avoid a series clean sweep against New Zealand in the third T20I at the University Oval, Dunedin, on January 17. Despite past successes in global T20 competitions, the team has struggled in bilateral series, winning just one-third of their 18 matches – a stat they share with Sri Lanka among Test-playing nations.

Since 2022, Pakistan hasn’t managed to win a T20I series, facing defeats against Australia, England, and even Afghanistan with a second-string team. Their last T20I series ended in a draw against New Zealand at home in 2023. Now, under new leadership, with a new captain and vice-captain, Pakistan aims to tap into their full potential in the T20I format. However, they currently find themselves trailing New Zealand 2-0 after consecutive losses.

New Zealand vs Pakistan 3rd T20I – Pitch Report:

Pitch Report – University Oval, Dunedin

The University Oval in Dunedin has witnessed only two T20Is to date, and both ended in victories for New Zealand. In 2021, Australia made a spirited chase of 220 runs, providing a close contest. Sri Lanka, in the following year, posted 141 runs, but it fell short as the hosts secured a win with 5.2 overs to spare.

Anticipate batting-friendly conditions at this venue, where the pitch historically favored the batsmen. The relatively high-scoring encounters suggest that the surface tends to assist stroke-making, encouraging run-scoring. Bowlers might face a challenge as the batsmen look to exploit the favorable conditions. The weather forecast predicts temperatures around 17 degrees Celsius, ensuring a pleasant playing environment for the teams.

New Zealand vs Pakistan 3rd T20I – Probable Playing XI:

New Zealand vs Pakistan 3rd T20I Team Updates:

*New Zealand’s Kane Williamson was initially scheduled for rest during the third T20I. However, a right hamstring injury compelled him to retire hurt midway through the second T20I, leading to his exclusion from the remaining series matches. Will Young will continue to be part of the squad, and it is anticipated that Tim Seifert will step in for Williamson, also taking on wicketkeeping duties. Mitchell Santner, who previously captained the T20I side against Bangladesh, is poised to assume leadership responsibilities once again.

*Pakistan’s Aamer Jamal has been on the expensive side in his recent two performances, and there’s a possibility that Pakistan might consider giving him a break, especially considering the 27-year-old’s recent involvement in the Australia Tests. Mohammad Nawaz emerges as a viable option, given the effectiveness of spinners in Dunedin.
