The three- match ODI series between Pakistan and New Zealand is set for an instigative homestretch at the National Stadium in Karachi on Friday. New Zealand thrashed Pakistan by 79 runs in the alternate ODI after losing the first game by six lattices to the host.
The host played the same platoon in the first two ODIs but may want to bring in an redundant spin option into the eleven for the series- decider. While it doesn’t have a specialist incentive in its reserves for this series, Pakistan could bring in uncapped each- rounder Kamran Ghulam, who batons in the middle- order and is a handy left- arm spin option. Ghulam could come in place of a leader, presumably Mohammad Wasim, who has gone at nearly six runs an over while picking up one gate in two games. The pitch in Karachi has decreasingly backed the tweakers in this series.
The Kiwis replaced Henry Shipley with leg- incentive Is Sodhi in the alternate ODI and the move paid tips as Sodhi returned with numbers of two for 38 in eight overs. With the series on the line and New Zealand having struck upon a winning combination, Kane Williamson is doubtful to change his eleven.
The Kiwis bounced back in the coming game and leveled the series. Devon Conway scored a century and was supported by captain Kane Williams as New Zealand posted 261 runs in49.5 overs. Naseem Shah picked a three- gate haul, while Mohammad Nawaz dismissed four Kiwi batters. Babar Azam did score a half- century but did not get any support on the other end. Each of the six New Zealand bowlers picked at least a gate as the Pakistani fur unit whisked up for just 182 runs.
