Pakistan vs New Zealand 2016 Series SchedulePakistan truly needs a good assistance in this tour, as black caps are ready to face the music because of their gained strength after defeating Lankan in ODIs. It will a limited over series in which Pakistan has to show off its ultimate performance. The squad of Pakistan in T20 is really a great combination of brilliant players and spinners. Skipper Shahid Afridi is considered to be the golden key to give success to the match, his presence always pleased the crowd. But he did not always proved to be as good as expected. Now in order to prepare for the ICC T20 2016, green shirts must look upon their current abilities and should try to increase them by their performances. One thing which is actually needed is the bating order, green shirts must change the bating order and the skipper should come as early as possible. Secondly, there is a bit misconception between the players as they play T20 matches just like an ODI, which is absolutely a wrong perception. In T20s every dot ball is a serious loss for the playing team therefore Pakistan must assure themselves that they are going to play massively in the upcoming tour to New Zealand.

Come Back Of Muhammad Amir:

Earlier Amir was not permitted to get the visa of New Zealand’s tour because of his suspected role in 2002, but after a legal process he has been given a visa and now almost everyone is happy on the revival of the fast bowler Muhammad Amir in the national team. Recently he has been assured to go to the coming tour to New Zealand which would be a limited overs tour. The assurance of his company in that tour goes viral and it has been expected that he would try to compensate what he has dine in the past. The coach of Pakistan is very much excited on the return of Muhammad Amir as he is expecting a lot from him. He must try to engage himself in the team coordination and try to avoid the mess. The main focus is to target the batsmen of New Zealand, he has the potential to show his extraordinary bowling capability.

  Already Charged Kiwis:

After winning the ODI series and one T20 from Sri Lankan, New Zealand got the confidence in playing. They are now in an amazing form therefore it would be difficult for Pakistan to face the music if they did not show superb performance in bowling, bating and fielding as well. Pakistan has recently lost the ODI and T20 series against England and now it could be a bit hard for them to crake a nut if they did not perform well. Pakistan has lost its second rank in T20 according to ICC ranking, therefore a lot of pressure could stay but it needs to avoid it by playing massively on the crease. The players who are going to play the ODI series are: Ahmed Shahzad, Azhar Ali, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Asad Shafiq, Babar Azam, Sohaib Maqsood, Zafar Gohar, Emad Wasim, Anwar Ali, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Wahab Riaz, Rahat Ali, Mohammad Irfan, Mohammad Rizwan and Mohammad Amir.

   A Chance to Attain  Former T20 Ranking:

After pathetically loosing a status of second team in ICC T20 ranking, Pakistan has fallen to fourth number which was quite shameful for the country. But now when they are going to face New Zealand before the arrival of T20 world cup 2016, they should try to get the previous status by winning the series. It is indeed a perfect chance for Pakistan to get back their status if they performed well, massively and consistantly. T20 world cup 2016 is going to be played in India which is a biggest rival of Pakistan therefore Pakiatan should assure its former status in the game. And for this purpose they need to increase the level of stamina in the players, they must know to play in the T20. Here are the sqaud of Pakistan in T20 vs Nz: Ahmed Shahzad, Mohammad Hafeez, Sohaib Maqsood, Shahid Afridi the skipper of Pakistan, Emad Wasim, Anwar Ali, Amir Yamin, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Wahab Riaz, Umar Gul, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Amir, and Saad Nasim are going to play the game on 15th january 2016. Umar Gul is playing after a shorter time, therefore a lot of expectations have been to him as he is the key bowler of T20 in Pakistan’s squad. His comeback in the national team is pleasing every cricket lover, his blinder spells always remained the key factors behind Pakistan’s win in T20s.
