Pakistan vs New Zealand 2nd T20 Match at National Stadium, Karachi is starting from today on 2 January 2023 and this is the final test match of this Kiwi visit on Pak soil. Babar Azam and co. will look to start their 2023 year on a winning note but it seems that former Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson is back in form and he might prove very deadly in this match yet again.

Pakistan vs New Zealand 2nd Test Match Jan 2023 Karachi Pitch Report :

Pitch at National Stadium, Karachi for the second test match between PAK vs NZ on 2 January 2023 has been prepared by a curator named Mohammad Ashraf from Chakwal. PCB selector Shahid Afridi has earlier instructed the curator to leave grass on the track and we will see some early help for the seam bowlers.
