Predicted Lineup for Pakistan in the Second T20I Against New Zealand

The first T20I match between Pakistan and New Zealand in Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium couldn’t happen because of rain. Only two balls were played before the game had to be stopped.

Shaheen Shah Afridi only bowled two deliveries in the first over and took a wicket. But then the rain came, and the match had to be called off. This disappointed fans who were eager to watch the exciting game.

The fans are getting ready for an intense match tonight, hoping for a great performance from both teams.

However, there’s speculation about Pakistan’s team selection. Imad Wasim was left out in the last match, leading to criticism from former cricketers. Questions are being raised about why he was included in the squad if he wasn’t going to play.

In the last match, Usman Khan, Irfan Khan Niazi, and Abrar Ahmed made their debuts, while Mohammad Amir returned to the team after four years.

Possible Lineups: Pakistan:

Babar Azam (c) Saim Ayub Mohammad Rizwan
Usman Khan Iftikhar Ahmed Muhammad Irfan Khan
Shadab Khan Shaheen Shah Afridi Naseem Shah
Mohammad Amir Abrar Ahmed  

New Zealand:

Michael Bracewell (c) Mark Chapman Josh Clarkson
Jacob Duffy Dean Foxcroft Ben Lister
James Neesham Tim Robinson Ben Sears
Tim Seifert (wk) Ish Sodhi  

Pakistan’s top order is a concern. It’s unclear who will open the batting, as Babar Azam has often batted at number three. Saim Ayub and Mohammad Rizwan have been considered for the opening pair.

Besides Shadab Khan, Abrar Ahmed is another spin option, especially in rainy conditions in Rawalpindi. Pakistan might go with two spinners in the team.
