New Zealand managed to thrash Bangladesh by 59 runs on Friday in the lead up to this all important game. The Kiwis, led by a record 123-run knock by Brendon McCullum, registered a convincing victory in their opening group match against Bangladesh, but it would, by no means, be an easier preposition for Ross Taylor`s boys against the former champions. The probable New Zealand squad may include: Ross Taylor (C), Doug Bracewell, James Franklin, Martin Guptill, Ronnie Hira, Brendon McCullum (WK), Nathan McCullum, Kyle Mills, Adam Milne, Rob Nicol, Jacob Oram, Tim Southee, Daniel Vettori, BJ Watling, Kane Williamson.
Pakistan are far better equipped than their Asian neighbours, and with a challenging bowling line-up that includes the likes of off-spinner Saeed Ajmal and speedster Umar Gul, they certainly have the necessary fire power to put a tab on the Kiwis.
However, Pakistan`s main worry remain their inconsistent batting. They played terribly and got all out for just 96 against England in their warm-up match and the victory against India in the first warm-up game became possible due to an extra-ordinary innings from Kamran Akmal. The Pakistani line up likely to play will include: Mohammad Hafeez (C), Abdul Razzaq, Asad Shafiq, Imran Nazir, Kamran Akmal (WK), Mohammad Sami, Nasir Jamshed, Raza Hasan, Saeed Ajmal, Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Malik, Sohail Tanvir, Umar Akmal, Umar Gul, Yasir Arafat.
