ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Preview of the Pakistan Team:
The Pakistan team is not very confident but is looking for vengeance. After getting technically knocked out of the tournament at the hands of Zimbabwe, the team wants to make a statement before they return. They will be playing with a “Nothing to lose” attitude. They are going to go all-guns-blazing. Expect a small change in the batting order. There is also a chance that Fakhar Zaman opens the innings and Babr comes a bit down the order. Haris Rauf has been their best bowler so far!
Expected Playing XI:
Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Babar Azam (C), Shan Masood, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Haider Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Naseem Shah
ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Preview of the Netherlands Team:
The Netherlands is missing their most experienced player Roelf Van De Merwe. But Paul Van Meekeren and Bas De Leede are filling his shoes. The Netherlands is bowling very well.

He has had an elite tournament so far. His all-around prowess has been displayed in full bloom.
Expected Playing XI:
Vikramjit Singh, Max O’Dowd, Bas de Leede, Colin Ackermann, Tom Cooper, Scott Edwards (C & wk), Tim Pringle, Logan van Beek, Shariz Ahmad, Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeren
Pakistan will win the contents comprehensively. The top performer with the bat is Mohammad Rizwan. However, Paul Van Meekeren will be the star with the ball for Netherlands.
