For the New Zealand- Pakistan match to be held today, two of the three ‘predictors’ have bet their vote on Pakistan. Having said that, the three were unanimous in their vote for Pakistani skipper Shahid Afridi.
New Zealand vs Pakistan
The unpredictability of the Pakistan team, is a given. Pakistan may have a 100% record halfway into the group stage, their batting came under pressure against Canada, and it was Afridi’s magic that saw them through. This is the first ODI ever to be played on this ground. NZ are coming here on the back of a solid performance. This could be anyone’s match, but my money is on NZ.
It's time for Pakistan to start firing on more than the Afridi cylinder. Pakistan will come good in the batting department; will win.
Shahid Afridi's bowling form has made him irresistible in the World Cup so far and I think he'll carry on with the good work in a victory over New Zealand.
