The first semi-final of the ongoing T20 World Cup will bring rejuvenated Pakistan up against consistent New Zealand at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). Kane Williamson-led side has been among the consistent teams in the competition, barring their only defeat against England.
On the other hand, Pakistan entered the semi-finals on the back of a lot of luck and their players peaking just at the right time. Let’s look at the fantasy prediction for the match which will feature the clash between a side with top-notch batters and quality bowlers.
Babar Azam must thank its middle-order batters who have been performing extremely well in the last couple of games. The likes of Md. Harris, Shan Masood, and Iftikhar Ahmed have earned a lot of respect with their performance in past performances and must make the entry into the fantasy squad.
Md Rizwan can also be included as he showed positive signs against Bangladesh. Shaheen Afridi should be a mandatory pick given his recent form, while Haris Rauf, and either Naseem Shah or Haris Rauf can be included depending on the credits left. Shadab Khan is a terrific all-rounder in the squad and should be a top pick in the squad.
Probable playing XI:
Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Haris, Shan Masood, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi
Blackcaps feature top-rated batters in their squad, and batters have been performing as well. Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Glenn Phillips, and Kane Williamson are inform-batters in the squad, while Daryl Mitchell has played a couple of valuable innings for the side. Lockie Ferguson should be a mandatory pick from the squad. Tim Southee has been in good form and should be considered when making Fantasy 11. Meanwhile, any one of Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner should be in the squad as well.
Probable playing XI:
Finn Allen, Devon Conway (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Glenn Phillips, James Neesham, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult
