Lahore, Oct 2(ANI): Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja Raja has said that New Zealand fast bowlers could utilise the varied bounce of the Wanderers wicket to pose problems for Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy semi-final on Saturday.
"It's just because of playing conditions that the contest between Pakistan and New Zealand is now 50-50," Daily Times quoted Ramiz, as saying.
Numerous batsmen have struggled to score runs at Wanderers where the West Indies were twice dismissed for under 150 runs, while the Kiwis bowled out England for 146 in their last match to finish on top of Group B.
Ramiz further highlighted that Pakistan have been able to put on extraordinary performance in the tournament, and said: Adjustment, adaptability and acclimatisation are the three key points when you play outside home and in all these three areas akistan team has done well." (ANI)
