Weather and Pitch Report
Bengaluru will be mainly sunny on 4 November, with the daytime temperature at 28 degrees Celsius. The night will be much cooler at 19 degrees. While the weather is expected to be dry, there is a 20 percent possibility of rain.
A small ground with a fast outfield provides the ideal conditions for batting. We witnessed this in the Australia versus Pakistan match here. However, bowlers, especially the pacemen, can expect some assistance, as we saw in the England vs Sri Lanka match.
New Zealand vs Pakistan Today Prediction: New Zealand to Win
NZ have made a mark at this World Cup, thanks to their dominant batting. Everyone has contributed right down to Santner and Neesham. Most importantly, the batters have shown positive intent, not afraid to go for their shots even when wickets have fallen.
Their bowlers led by Boult have done more than expected. Henry and Ferguson have given Boult reliable support with the new ball. Santner has arguably been the most consistent spin bowler of the competition. Glen Philips has emerged as an additional spin bowler that NZ can rely on. Approaching the business end of the tournament, the Kiwis are peaking at the right time.
New Zealand nearly pulled off an improbable win against Australia in their previous match. Chasing 388 to win, they fell 5 runs short. On a batting track at Bengaluru, Pakistan face the daunting task of containing the Kiwi batting powerhouse. The toss could prove crucial. The team winning the toss might want to bat first and put the runs on the board.
Pakistan could find this easier said than done against the pace trio of Boult, Henry and Ferguson. Pakistan’s traditional strength is bowling. However, their bowling has let them down. In the circumstances, their top order batters needed to compensate adequately, which they have failed to do. For instance, Babar Azam has scored fifties that he could have converted to hundreds. Shafique and Imam-ul-Haq could have capitalised on good starts. Their failure in crunch situations has made Pakistan’s task much tougher.
I believe that New Zealand will romp home and grab a spot in the semi-finals.
