Pakistan started their World T20 campaign on a winning note by beating Bangladesh, but failed to maintain winning momentum against the archrivals India. Pakistan have players who can turn the fortune on their day and display a noteworthy performance. However, it boils down to how Pakistan use their resources and select a team combination. Evidently, against India, Pakistan completely lost the trick by dropping a spinner and instead went for an extra pacer in Mohammad Sami.

On the other hand, New Zealand made their strategy clear for this T20 extravaganza in India: horses for courses. In the tournament opener against India, they dropped the likes of Trent Boult and Tim Southee and instead drafted three spinners in Nathan McCullum, Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi. The strategy paid off and the Black Caps eventually pulled off an upset, as the spinners conceded only 44 runs and scalped 9 wickets.
