New Zealand vs Pakistan 4th T20I Match Preview: New Zealand already won the series by 3-0, and now they will look to extend it to 4-0 in the next match against Pakistan on January 19, 2024, at Hagley Oval, Christchurch.

New Zealand clinched the T20 series in their favor after defeating Pakistan by 45 runs. Finn Allen played an explosive inning of 137 and single-handedly gave his team a win because, other than him, the team batter failed to perform. Allen hits 16 sixes in the innings, which equals the record for most sixes in T20I set by the Afghanistan batter Hazratullah Zazai, who also hit 16 sixes against Ireland in 2019, in which he scored 162 runs.

New Zealand’s other batters failed to support Finn Allen, but still, they posted 224 runs total, which was enough to stop the underconfident Pakistan team, who failed to chase the total and just made 179 runs in 20 overs. Pakistan’s middle order once again showed a disappointing performance, and only Babar Azam scored 58 runs in just 37 balls. They gave Azam Khan a chance, who has been performing really well in the PSL but failed to keep up that intent in the international matches, which clearly shows the difference in bowling quality.

Hagley Oval, Christchurch pitch will favor the batter with short boundaries and flat wicket, which will have some movement for the pace bowlers, but for the spinners, it will be hard for them to be economical. Pakistan and New Zealand have already played two matches on the same pitch in the past, winning 1-1 match each.

Team Preview Of New Zealand

New Zealand will look to give chances to new players who have not played, and it is possible that Will Young will get a chance in place of Finn Allen, who has been in fine form, in the next match. However, New Zealand batters need to improve their performance because, other than Allen, no batter has scored a total of 90 runs in three matches, which is concerning.

Important players for the New Zealand Team in the match against Pakistan

1- Tim Southee has been amazing in the T20I, and in the two matches, he picked up 8 wickets and will captain the side for the last three matches. He will again go to captain his side in the absence of Williamson, and in the last match, he took two wickets.

2- Finn Allen became the highest scorer in the New Zealand team after scoring 137 against Pakistan in the last match with the help of record 16 sixes in his innings. He will once again be the main batter for the team.

3- Devon Conway has been a flop since the ODI World Cup, and in the last 3 matches, he only scored 27 runs, which is a concerning thing for him, too. However, he does have a good record on this venue, scoring 70 points against Bangladesh in 2022.

Team Preview Of Pakistan

Pakistan will look to find at least a win in their next match against New Zealand after losing the last three matches, and now it is a good chance for them to win the next match because New Zealand might give chances to new players after winning the series.

Important players for the Pakistan Team in the match against New Zealand

1- Babar Azam is back in form, scoring three consecutive half-centuries. This clearly tells that Bobz the King is back, but he needs to keep performing in the next two matches. He is the 2nd leading run scorer in the series with 181 runs in 3 matches.

2- Fakhar Zaman should be given a chance in the opening in place of Saim Ayub as he has a great T20I record and is one of the best strikers of the ball in the Pakistan team.

3- Haris Rauf took 18 wickets in the last 8 matches, and even in the last match, he took 2 wickets, but then Finn Allen scored 27 runs in his over. He went for 60 runs in the last match.
