The weather is good today at Birmingham. Very less clouds will be there but no chances of rain. The atmosphere will be cool with the temperature in between 17 and 19 degrees Celsius. The humidity will be 80s to 90s but will come down as the game progresses.
The pitch will be helpful for the bowlers to a large extent. The conditions are expected to be gloomy and the pacers will have favourable conditions. Runs may not be easy to come by. Toss winning team may choose to field first. Make early breakthroughs and push the opposition on the back foot from the outset.
New Zealand team almost already secures their position in semi-final, they stand in number 2nd. The Kiwis may want to give Henry Nicholls an opportunity as Colin Munro is not looking in his form. Martin Guptill has shown his batting but is yet to improve his confidence in this tournament. Captain Kane and Ross Taylor are the most reliable player, they are continue producing the runs. Tom Latham needs to show his talent. Colin de Grandhomme scoring 60 versus the South Africa will keep him in good stead. James Neesham’s role is vital, being their premier all-rounder. In the bowling lineup, Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson have been amongst the wickets as well. Matt Henry would also need some attention.

Pakistan team stand in number 7 and to enter in semi-final, they need to win all their next matches.. Pakistan do not want to change their winning combination from the last game. As far as their openers- Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq- are concerned, it’s high time they convert the starts into something substantial. Babar Azam, their leading run-scorer in the tournament, needs to be at his best. Mohammad Hafeez isn’t in the worst of form either with the bat in hand.
Haris Sohail replacing Shoaib Malik turned out to be a masterstroke as the southpaw scored 89, looks in very good form. In the bowling department, Mohammad Amir undoubtedly terror for the opponent, taken 15 wickets so far. Wahab Riaz has cranked up the pace and ruffled feathers. Imad Wasim is yet to pick up a wicket in the tournament. The most important, Pakistani fielding is worst in this tournament so all the team need to improve their fielding.
