New Zealand, meanwhile, were unchanged as they look to wrap up the series 3-0
Shadab Khan continued to dominate the tosses in this series, winning a third one in a row, and this time, he decided Pakistan needed a change. There were three in terms of personnel and one in terms of tactics. After batting first and losing the first two T20Is, Pakistan will be chasing tonight.
New Zealand were unchanged, meaning legspinner Ish Sodhi gets his 50th T20I cap and is on the cusp of becoming New Zealand’s second-highest wicket-taker in the format.
Pakistan’s efforts to secure a first win on tour now falls on the shoulders of batsman Hussain Talat, allrounder Iftikhar Ahmed and fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain as they come in to replace the misfiring Abdullah Shafique, Imad Wasim and Wahab Riaz.
New Zealand: 1 Martin Guptill, 2 Tim Seifert (wk), 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Devon Conway, 5 Glenn Phillips, 6 James Neesham, 7 Kyle Jamieson, 8 Ish Sodhi, 9 Scott Kuggeleijn, 10 Tim Southee, 11 Trent Boult
Pakistan: 1 Mohammad Rizwan, 2 Haider Ali, 3 Mohammad Hafeez, 4 Shadab Khan (capt), 5 Hussain Talat, 6 Iftikhar Ahmed, 7 Khushdil Shah, 8 Faheem Ashraf, 9 Haris Rauf, 9 Shaheen Afridi, 11 Mohammad Hasnain
