PAKISTAN are in a strong position to put themselves in the semi-final mix, having restricted New Zealand’s impressive batting line-up during their innings.
But middle order duo Jimmy Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme have led a Black Caps middle-order fightback to leave Sarafaraz Ahmed’s men with work to do.
A win today is crucial for the Pakistanis if they want to make the semi-final, with Australia doing them a big favour against England yesterday.
New Zealand however, are virtually assured of a top four spot and looking to remain one of only two unbeaten sides in the tournament.
