Most consistent team against its most unpredictable

The two sides are as alike as cheese and chalk.

On the one hand, we have the Kiwis who have been consistently performing well in all its matches and have not lost a single game. On the other hand, Pakistan is one of the most inconsistent performing team frittering away their chances and has landed them in the most challenging situation.

They have performed brilliantly against England before losing continuously against both Australia and India.

However, the championship has evolved into an exciting possibility, and every team except Afghanistan and South Africa have an excellent chance to make into the top four slots.

New Zealand a well-balanced performance

New Zealand is placed comfortably in the top spot, and a win or loss will not make a lot of difference.

The Kiwis have excelled in all the departments of the game. Their skipper has led from the front while Ross Taylor has been in a supporting role. Colin de Grandhomme has contributed both by the bat and the ball and has amply complemented the pace attack.

The Kiwi bowlers are looking as menacing as ever, and it will require a lot of efforts by the Pakistani batsmen to tackle them. Trent Boult can penetrate any defence with his swing while Lockie Ferguson’s pace can draw jitters in the most seasoned batsmen.

The only chink in the Kiwi armour is their vulnerability against spin.
