T20 World Cup 2022 New Zealand vs Pakistan: Date, Time, Venue, Pitch Report, Weather Forecast, Head-To-Head, Squads, Predicted Playing 11, And Dream11 Winning Prediction. New Zealand will take on Pakistan in the first semi-final of the T20 World Cup 2022 on 9th November at the Sydney Cricket Ground from 1:30 PM IST. New Zealand has been phenomenal in the tournament so far and they are one of the favourites to lift the trophy.
Pakistan, on the other hand, dramatically qualified for the Semi-finals on the very last matchday and although they have not had a great campaign so far, their squad is one of the strongest in the tournament. It will thus be a battle worth witnessing.

New Zealand vs Pakistan: Pitch Report
Sydney Cricket ground has been historically known for favouring the batsmen. Spinners often tend to get some help and turn and that could help the Pakistani spinners. The team that wins the toss would look to bat first. The outfield is pretty big and that is something to think about as well.
New Zealand vs Pakistan: Weather Report
Sydney is expected to have partly cloudy weather on Wednesday during the time when the match between New Zealand and Pakistan is scheduled to take place. However, there is no prediction of rain at all so the weather is not supposed to affect the match in any way whatsoever. The expected temperature is 21 degree-Celcius.

New Zealand vs Pakistan: Dream 11 Winning Prediction
New Zealand are in a far superior form as compared to Pakistan currently as far as T20 cricket is concerned. Pakistan were predicted to be one of the favourites to lift the World Cup before the tournament started but after a series of unforeseen defeats, they are no longer deemed to be in that position. We thus predict that New Zealand will register an easy win over Pakistan and thus qualify for the Finals.
