New Zealand vs Pakistan head to head have been locking horns against each other in ODI cricket since 1973. Pakistan have dominated New Zealand in the rivalry thus far in the 50-over format.
The two teams have faced each other a staggering 115 times so far with New Zealand winning 51 matches while Pakistan have won on 60 occasions. One match ended in a tie while three others ended in no result too.
Even in World Cup encounters, New Zealand have been poor against Pakistan winning only two matches out of nine. Pakistan have thumped the Kiwis in the mega event too winning as many as seven matches.
|New Zealand won||51|
The 35th match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup will take place between New Zealand and Pakistan at the M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bengaluru on November 4 (Saturday).
New Zealand have lost their way a bit after winning four matches on the bounce. They still have their semifinal qualification in their own hands but a loss to Pakistan will certainly shake things up a little bit.
They are coming off into this match with losses at the hands of India, Australia and South Africa and will have to put their best foot forward soon before things go out of their hands.
Pakistan, on the other hand, are suddenly hoping for a miracle after their win against Bangladesh. Things did look grim for them before New Zealand’s 190-run loss to South Africa kept them alive in the tournament. Now, they will have to beat New Zealand and England in their last two matches and then hope for NRR to take care of their qualification.
