Match Preview

PAK vs BAN: The sixth match of the New Zealand T20I Tri-Series 2022 will take place between Pakistan and Bangladesh. The final group game will be played at Hagley Oval in Christchurch on 13th October 2022.

Pakistan started out great as they defeated New Zealand and Bangladesh in two consecutive games. However, their age-old problem resurfaced as the middle order was dismantled and they received a thrashing defeat against New Zealand. However, owing to the 2 wins, they have qualified for the finals of the Tri-Series. 

Bangladesh, on the other hand, has displayed a disappointing performance in the tournament. They have lost all the games so far and are out of the finals race. Things are tough out there for the team as they are failing to set up as a unit and the T20 World Cup is just days away. The last game is vital for the team as their pride is at stake.

Pitch Report for PAK vs BAN

The last game played was a high-scoring match. Over 200 runs were scored on the pitch. Hence, the surface is most likely to play out the same. However, bowlers, especially the pacers, will also gain some movement on the surface. Chasing would be the preferred choice for the captains. 

Probable Playing XI


Mohammad Rizwan (wicket-keeper), Babar Azam (captain), Shan Masood, Haider Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf


Najmul Hossain Shanto, Soumya Sarkar, Litton Das, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Shakib Al Hasan (captain), Yasir Ali, Nurul Hasan (wicket-keeper), Mohammad Saifuddin, Shoriful Islam, Ebadot Hossain

Match Predictions for PAK vs BAN

Certainly, Pakistan is the probable winner of this game. The opening duo of Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan has been impressive. However, middle-order woes stay. They need to figure that out before the finals. Meanwhile, Bangladesh will be playing for their pride as the finals berth has already sailed off for them. Overall, a good contest is likely to play out at Christchurch.
