New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson opted to bat first after winning the toss against Pakistan in the first semi-final of the T20 World Cup. Pakistan faced New Zealand for the fourth time in a World Cup semi-final. The two teams have faced off against one other six times in the history of the T20 World Cup, with Pakistan winning four of those games while New Zealand won two. India and England will play the second semi-final at the Adelaide Oval stadium in Adelaide on Thursday. The Black Caps practiced in Sydney before the big game of the mega cricket event. But, the Pakistani players took a rest, except for skipper Babar Azam, who practiced alone for one and a half hours. The Men in Green seem to be confident as they have won their last three Group matches. They will take on New Zealand with the same winning combination. Similarly, the Black Caps also are unlikely to make any changes to the squad. Squad Pakistan: Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Haris, Shan Masood, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Wasim, Naseem Shah, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf. New Zealand: Finn Allen, Devon Conway (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson.
