Now that they are here, it’s suddenly a different ball game. Sydney has a decent Pakistani population and there will be more flying down from all corners of Australia. The lights will be on, there’s no rain in the air, and most importantly, the SCG pitch has something in it for the spinners, which should bring experienced leggie Shadab Khan into the equation. It’s going to have a feel of home away from home for Pakistan, something that can prove crucial in a game like this.
Pakistan can also carry a slight psychological advantage going into this winner takes all affair. They recently won a T20 tri-series in New Zealand hammering the hosts in the final. They know what to expect from this New Zealand side. Williamson rightly pointed out that there couldn’t have been a more dangerous opponent than Pakistan.
The respect, though, is mutual. Pakistan team mentor Matthew Hayden said: “I even played against (Tim) Southee. That goes to show you how much experience that team has got… Ferguson has great pace, lots of experience in T20 cricket as well, so poses good threats. And they’ve got good off-pace bowling as well,” Hayden said.
The Aussie great is also mindful of New Zealand’s “ability to constantly punch above their weight”, something that makes every big side uncomfortable. But then, Pakistan, too, aren’t quite the whipping boys — they know a thing or two about winning from impossible situations.
