PAK vs NZ Dream11 prediction: Fantasy Suggestions, Predicted Playing 11, Head-to-Head record

Pakistan and New Zealand locked horns in a 3-match ODI series earlier this year in January. Visitors New Zealand won the series 2-1. However, with the key New Zealand players unavailable due to their IPL 2023 commitments, Pakistan have a great chance of avenging themselves.

The same was expected in the T20I series as well, but New Zealand did a tremendous job by winning the fifth T20I and levelling the series 2-2. The pressure will be on the full-strength Pakistan squad to beat the second-string Kiwi side. The matches also hold importance considering the upcoming ODI World Cup in India.
