[box type=”shadow” align=”alignleft” class=”” width=””] Cricket Prediction : Despite being better equipped and playing at home, New Zealand will face problems. Wouldn’t be easy to win this match at all. Pakistan definitely has a chance if while batting its wickets don’t fall quickly. We are only slightly in favour of NZ.

Pakistan, New Zealand, 3rd ODI, Auckland
New Zealand will hope for nothing short of a series win against a patchy Pakistan side, while the visitors will want to avoid back-to-back series losses during their New Zealand tour.

 Preview – New Zealand vs Pakistan, 3rd ODI at Auckland

After losing the 1st ODI & the 2nd ODI being washed away, Pakistan are faced with a do-or-die situation in the 3rd & final ODI of their series against New Zealand.

A very evident lack of inspiration in the Pakistani camp could be seen throughout their tour of New Zealand. The visitors have let matches slip from comfortable positions & have come under huge criticism from media & fans back home. Rumours are afloat about coach Waqar Younis’ resignation.

New Zealand have themselves not been at their best, but have manged to get themselves out of difficult situations, thanks to Pakistan’s inconsistency.
