New Zealand vs Pakistan 3rd T20 preview

The Pakistan team is known to have several T20 superstars in their ranks. The side has been consistent with their performances in the shortest format in the recent past. However, in the absence of skipper Babar Azam, the visitors have looked lackluster in the first two T20Is of the series. New Zealand have already clinched the series with two comprehensive victories. The hosts will be eyeing for a clean sweep, to gather momentum for the upcoming Test matches, whereas Pakistan will play to salvage their pride.

Tim Seifert and Kane Williamson scored terrific half-centuries and orchestrated a stellar match-winning partnership of 129.
