New Zealand’s undefeated streak in the ICC ODI World Cup was brought to a screeching halt by India. Ever since that loss, their campaign has gone off the rails with back-to-back losses to Australia and South Africa. With three consecutive defeats, New Zealand will be keen to make a comeback when they take on Pakistan in the upcoming World Cup encounter.

This high-profile game will take place at Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium on 4 November. New Zealand now occupies the fourth position with 8 points in 7 matches.

On the other hand, Pakistan ended their four-match losing streak in their previous fixture by defeating Bangladesh in Kolkata. Babar Azam and his team finally found their bearings by first restricting Bangladesh to a subpar total of 204 runs with their strong bowling performance and then chasing it down with ease by losing just 3 wickets.

However, there will also be assistance for the spinners as the match progresses. Dew might not be a huge factor and hence, the captain winning the toss could opt to bat first.
