The 3rd T20 match between New Zealand and Pakistan will be played at McLean Park in Napier. This match will commence at 7:00 PM local time (11:30 AM IST). It’s going to be streamed to FanCode.
The third and final T20I of the three-game series between Pakistan and New Zealand will be played in Napier on Tuesday. The hosts have already sealed the series that won the first two matches, and the Shadab Khan-led side is going to play proudly in this contest. In the absence of Babar Azam, the Pakistan War has definitely failed, and the management will expect that they will do well in the last game.
New Zealand, on the other hand, is boosted by the return of Trent Boult, Tim Southee and Kane Williamson. Southee and Williamson played a vital role in the team’s win in the second game, though Tim Seifert also battled superbly. The hosts, however, will be worried about the form of Martin Guptill who hasn’t clicked in the home season yet.

NZ vs PAK Top 11 Choices for Today’s Match:
Tim Seifert’s scored 141 runs in two innings so far in the series at a superb strike rate of 133.02. His undefeated 84* in the previous game showed that he was in excellent shape and that he could become captain in this series.
Kane Williamson made a recovery in the last game and scored an undefeated fifty. Once again, the Kiwi skipper is expected to shine with the bat.
Also read: Babar Azam and Imam were omitted from the 1st examination.
Mohammad Hafeez came up with a superb 99* shot of 57 balls in the second T20I. The veteran will have to play another close knock in this encounter if Pakistan wishes to defeat New Zealand somehow.
Tim Southee scalped four wickets in the previous game, and if the ball swings again, it might be a deadly prospect.
Martin Guptill didn’t do much in the last outing, but managed 21 out of 11 balls. He looks in a good touch and is expected to score a lot in this match.
