Odds, picks & predictions

New Zealand: -135
Pakistan: +105

Moneyline pick: New Zealand -135

New Zealand has been knocking at the door for several years now, and this could be their best chance to actually get the job done. This team has made the final in the last three ICC events and surprisingly, each has been in a different format of the game. Pakistan might have the best player on the pitch in Babar Azam, but New Zealand is the more complete and versatile unit. Back the Kiwis to make it to another final.
