Cricbuzz predicted that the pitch in Dubai will once again favour the spinners. Even though in the previous game spinners didn't bowl exceptionally well, and it was the medium pacers who did a better job.

Another warm and dry evening is expected in Dubai with little or no breeze flowing around the ground.

New Zealand feeling the heat in UAE

Pakistan secured their 11th consecutive T20 series in the previous game. It seems like Pakistan will be holding on to the no.1 position on the ICC T20I rankings for some time now. With the series already in the bag, Pakistan is unlikely to make any changes to their line-up. The balance of their side has been key to their success so far. According to Cricbuzz, Pakistan will be playing New Zealand in a three-match ODI series after this game, so there might be a possibility of Pakistan trying some players off the bench.

New Zealand has played some sensible cricket so far in the series, but they have failed to get over the line twice.

Cricbuzz reported that New Zealand captain Kane Williamson might promote himself to open the innings in this game. This would mean that Glenn Philips will have to step aside after failing to make a score in two innings. Mark Chapman may have a look in too before the ODI series. Other than this, New Zealand may not make any more changes in their XI.

In another international match today, India host West Indies for the 1st T20.
