Due to a shoulder injury

Josh Clarkson will not be playing for New Zealand in the Twenty20 Internationals. Until the third Twenty20 International match against Pakistan. In place of him for the Wednesday night contest in Dunedin will be Will Young. Kane Williamson was to be replaced by Clarkson for the third game as the captain of New Zealand continues to assess his knee issue.

Young joins the team after scoring 50 runs and 100 runs for Central Districts in the Napier Super Smash. Before blazing his way to an undefeated 63-ball 101 against Otago in the following game. He hammered a 33-ball 50 against Wellington.

Williamson will return for the last two Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is), which are scheduled for January 19 and 21, in Christchurch. The teams will travel for Dunedin on Monday. Against Pakistan, New Zealand’s five-game Twenty20 International series got off to a great start. Daryl Mitchell and Williamson both scored strong fifties, which allowed the hosts to score 226 for 8. Although Babar Azam scored fifty runs in reply, Tim Southee’s economical 4 for 25 enabled New Zealand to knock Pakistan out for 180 and win the first game by 46 runs.

Due to Covid-19, Mitchell Santner, who was set to captain New Zealand for the third Twenty20 International in Williamson’s absence. Was unable to play in the opening match in Auckland. If Santner is unable to recuperate in time for the third game. It will be intriguing to see who captains the team. After testing positive on Friday, he was kept apart at the team’s hotel in Auckland.

Toss: Pakistan chose to field.

Shaheen Afridi: Abbas debut was a positive sign, hope he continues in that manner. We have to improve more in fielding, this wicket looks fine, ground measurement is decent and this match will be good, going with unchanged team.
Kane Williamson: I thought first half was good, bowlers executed their plans well. We start again and go back to what’s in front of us, different venue and different conditions. Mitchell Santner comes in for Matt Henry.
