New Zealand and Pakistan will be up against each other in the T20 World Cup 2022 on Wednesday, 9th November (Today). The venue for Today’s game is Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney. The SCG fans are ready to witness one of the big rivalries on the pitch today between New Zealand and Pakistan which will be starting at 1:30 PM (IST).
However, before the game, there are some facts and records that you need to have a look at. Pakistan and New Zealand are not playing in the semifinals of the T20 World Cup for the first time. So, they have experienced pressure before, but New Zealand has never coped with it as they have never won a trophy (ICC Men’s T20 World Cup). Meanwhile, Pakistan won the trophy once and that was also in the second season of the tournament.
Pakistan cricket team lifted the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup trophy in the year 2009 after they faced a humiliating defeat to India in the previous edition (2008). Pakistan has won 17 of the 28 T20Is between the teams, including four of their six clashes in previous editions of this tournament.
On the other hand, New Zealand has won 3 and lost 8 of the semis they have reached in either World Cup. This will be one of the exciting encounters to watch today at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). It will be interesting to see which team gets into finals and which team will have to book their return tickets.
