Winning skipper Babar Azam said:

“When we came to the dressing room, just passed message we need good partnerships. Said to Fakhar if he plays 15 overs we'll be ahead. Back of the mind we knew rain was coming. Full credit to Fakhar. We knew there was a short boundary and utilised it. We're just trying to give 100 percent. You never know. We're just going match by match,” Babar said.

Losing skipper Kane Williamson said:

“Obviously a nice first half. Weather played its part but can't take away from Pakistan. Zaman - the ground wasn't big enough for him. They played exceptionally well and gave themselves every chance. Match getting shortened brings both teams closer together. Would've been nice to have the full 50. Was tricky to protect the shorter side. Full credit, they deserved the result today. I thought the contributions throughout were great. Clearly a very good surface. Can be tough on the bowlers sometimes. Rachin is batting absolutely beautifully. There's always small margins with the ball. If you get a wicket or two, you can take the short side out of it with the left-right combo. But we couldn't do that,” Williamson said.

Fakhar Zaman adjudged POTM:

“We were chasing 400 and that was our plan, just to see off the first 4 overs and thankfully it was my day. To be honest, I was lucky a few times but really enjoyed this innings. We know every game is a do or die for us and we have decided to play aggressively and we are playing with that mind so everybody is just trying to score runs. This is one of the best (knocks in ODI cricket) but I will always rank my 193 in South Africa highly, but I really enjoyed this game and New Zealand are a great side, so definitely one of the best. We were also praying that we don't want any more game to happen (while waiting anxiously in the dressing room during the rain break) because it was already 9 and half hours and we knew that DLS would come into the equation. We wanted to play with that aggressive mindset and we will play aggressively in the next game also,” Zaman said.

In the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, New Zealand (NZ) is set to face off against Pakistan (PAK) in the 35th match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on November 4. Pakistan, after a string of four consecutive losses, managed to secure a crucial victory against Bangladesh in Kolkata. This win has breathed fresh life into their World Cup semi-final aspirations, as they currently stand in fifth place on the points table with six points and a net run rate of -0.024.

For Pakistan's potential semi-final berth, a clear path involves securing convincing wins in their upcoming two matches. Their immediate opponents are the New Zealand team, who have recently faced a downturn, suffering three consecutive losses. Notably, Pakistan has a strong historical record against New Zealand in the ODI World Cup. Hence, the Men in Green will carry a high level of confidence into this crucial encounter.

New Zealand's recent form had them positioned as a formidable side to contend with mere weeks ago. They had clinched victory in four consecutive matches, displaying impeccable coordination. Nonetheless, their momentum was interrupted by a narrow defeat to India, followed by a gut-wrenching 5-run loss to Australia. Their last outing saw them utterly dominated by South Africa, casting a shadow of uncertainty over their semi-final aspirations.

The perfect contest between bat-ball awaits at Chinnaswamy Stadium

Rachin Ravindra has emerged as a standout performer for the New Zealand side in this World Cup. He ranks among the tournament's leading run-scorers, amassing 415 runs in 7 innings at an impressive average of 69.16. As a left-handed No.3 batter, he's expected to thrive on the pitch's conditions. With Devon Conway's recent struggles and Tom Latham's disappointing tournament, the responsibility now falls on Daryl Mitchell and Ravindra to deliver substantial runs for the team.

Pakistan's bowling unit has hit its stride, showcasing impressive performances. Shaheen Afridi now leads the bowling charts with 16 wickets at an average of 19.93. The addition of Mohammad Wasim Jr. has proven to be a lethal asset, with his skills improving with each outing. While Haris Rauf has conceded runs, his knack for taking crucial wickets remains evident, amassing 12 dismissals at an economy rate of 6.50.
