Take a look at the pitch report, weather forecast, playing 11, and injury updates are given below.
Meanwhile, the Kiwis already took a 1-0 lead by defeated Pakistan in the opening T20I of the three-match series. Pakistan's top order collapsed disastrously against an inexperienced Kiwi pace attack barring PAK skipper Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf classy knocks in the opening T20I on Friday.
The second T20I will also witness the comeback of NZ regular skipper Kane Williamson after his paternity leave and he will be a part of the squad for the second T20I along with some experienced lads in the likes of Boult, Jamieson, and Southee who missed out on the opener.
On the other hand, Pakistan are unlikely to make any major changes and would like to retain the XI despite the loss. So, the visitors will be aiming to rectify their mistakes in the second T20I and put in a much better performance to level the T20 series.
The pitch at Seddon Park will favour the batsmen largely. The average score at this venue will be around 170-180 runs and a similar total is expected on Sunday. Batting first will be the key success for the sides as the dew will play its role in the later half of the inning.
The weather during the contest will be sunny and ideal for a game of cricket. The temperature in Hamilton is expected to be around 22-25 degrees Celsius during the match and will decrease considerably during the end of the game. However, there are minimal chances of rain throughout the day.
New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Glenn Phillips, Kane Williamson (C), Tim Seifert (wk), Devon Conway, Jimmy Neesham, Kyle Jamieson, Scott Kuggeleijn, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Trent Boult
