New Zealand has been the most consistent team in this tournament and ICC mega-events. The Kiwis reached the finals of last year's T20 WC and the fifty-overs world cup in 2015 and 2019.
They are also the winners of the World Test Championship (WTC) in 2021. Despite being so consistent and an experienced unit, The Black Caps have only one ICC title to their name.
The Kiwis came very close to winning their maiden ICC fifty overs world cup in 2019. But the boundary count rule didn't allow them to do so.
Now Williamson and his men will eye for a spot in the final of the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. Apart from their loss to England in the league stage, The Kiwis have performed exceptionally well.
New Zealand also won the match against the former defending champs of the T20 World Cup 2022 by a huge margin. That loss had rocked Australia early, so the Aussies are not there in the semi-final encounters of this T20 International event.
Kane Williamson and his side have the bowlers and batters who can fix a final date at the MCG on Sunday.
Kane Williamson is himself so experienced and calm under pressure situations. With the support of his fellow fast bowlers like Boult, Southee and Fergusson, the pace battery of the Kiwis looks lethal.
The Black Caps side also has two spin bowlers, Sodhi and Santner, who are quality spinners compared to the Pakistani spin bowlers.
Skipper Williamson still holds the key in the middle order, and they will need a good start from Finn Allen and Devon Conway in this first semi-final.
Glenn Philips and all-rounders like Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham and Mitch Santner will have to bat well and take New Zealand to a decent score.
The Kiwis have previously played two games at the SCG and won both matches quite comfortably in the end.
Mohammed Rizwan, Mohammad Haris, Babar Azam, Shan Masood, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Mohammed Wasim Jr and Haris Rauf.
The men in green team have done well to reach the semi-final spot despite losing the first two matches of the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.
Pakistan had a shocking one-run defeat to Zimbabwe, which will go down as the greatest upset in the T20 World Cup tournament history. Their first defeat was against India at the MCG.
Now in the semi-final match of the T20 World Cup 2022, The men in green will look to solve their opening woes. Babar and Rizwan did get a steady start against Bangladesh in their previous match.
But both the openers didn't look in rhythm, so they should change the batting order for the semis clash against the Kiwis.
Mohammad Haris should be promoted as the opener, and the skipper, Babar Azam, should bat down the order at the number three batting position.
Azam hasn't looked in control as the run machine of the Pakistani team looked before the tournament started. Rizwan also lost momentum, and still, he needs to come good.
Shan Masood at the number four spot and Iftikhar in the number five batting position will also be key batters for the men on green side. New Zealand has a deadly pace and spin attack, so the top four batters of the Pakistani side will have to fire in this semis clash. Last year also, Pakistan reached the semi-finals. But they lost to the Aussies, and Australia went on to win their maiden T20I Title.
But now, Pakistan should eye to win this match and book the final date at MCG on Sunday. Shaheen Afridi played well against Bangladesh, which should boost his confidence ahead of this match, and the men in green will rely mostly on Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf with the new ball and backend overs.
Shadab and Nawaz will be the two spinners in their XI. Pakistan has played one game at SCG and won that match against South Africa.
The pitch at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) is balanced for the batters and bowlers. The fast bowlers will get more help from this wicket at the start, and the experts also feel that the spinners might come good on this wicket.
The match will be played in overcast conditions. But the good news is that the skies are clear ahead of this semi-final match.
