New Delhi: Pakistan are in a must-win situation as they take on a high-flying New Zealand in a crucial Super 10 Group 2 encounter of the World Twenty20 at the Punjab Cricket Association in Mohali.
Despite winning their first encounter against Bangladesh, Pakistan bowed down to arch-rivals India and therefore face a task of beating New Zealand. The Kiwis are in stupendous form after winning two high-profile clashes already.
A win for the Black Caps will guarantee them progression into the semi-final round, something that skipper Kane Williamson will be eager to get.
Pakistan will have to up their performance and go for the kill as they have a squad which is capable of stopping the Kiwi flight.
It could be a battle of bowlers in Mohali, with both sides boasting of a good bowling unit.
