PAK vs NZ: The teams of Pakistan and New Zealand will face each other in the first semi-final match of the T20 World Cup. Both the teams will win this match and find their place in the final of the World Cup. This match will be played on Wednesday 09 November. Both the teams are fully preparing for this match. Before the match, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has said a big thing about the bowlers of the team.
Ahead of the crucial semi-final of the ICC T20 World Cup against Pakistan, Kane Williamson on Tuesday heaped praise on his bowling attack, saying he has done exceptionally well throughout the tournament. The Kiwis team gave an excellent performance in the Super 12 and were the toppers of Group 1. There were also some good batting performances throughout the tournament. The captain feels that the consistency of his bowlers has also played an important role so far.
What did Williamson say?
Williamson said, “Our bowlers are experienced players. They have played for us for a long time, whether it is taking wickets or especially, adjusting to the conditions that we definitely need when it comes to tournaments, world events. “It’s a big deal for the game. So they have been excellent throughout this tournament and tomorrow we are going to play against another opposition in second place. We need to do the same thing again that we have been doing.” “
Of the five bowlers New Zealand have used in this tournament, three have an economy rate of less than seven. Tim Southee (6.35), Mitchell Santner (6.43) and Ish Sodhi (6.78) have done well. Only Lockie Ferguson (8.13) and Trent Boult (7.18) have been a bit expensive, but they have worked for the Kiwis as well, as they are the real wicket-takers.
Williamson also spoke about the circumstances. They have played twice in this tournament in Sydney, but they don’t think going into tomorrow’s match will help them. “Whether it’s a loss or an advantage, it’s hard to know. Both the teams have played here. So we really need to focus on our cricket and the plans we want to achieve,” he said.
