Pakistanhave won the toss and elected to bat 1st in the 2nd ICC Champions Trophy Semi Final against New Zealand.
New Zealand stunned the Cricket World world by topping their group and reaching the Semi Finals of this years competition.
Pakistan on the other hand earned comprehensive victories against India and the West Indies, but fell marginally short to Australia in a last ball thriller.
New Zealand won this title in 2000 when they stunned India in the final however they are yet to win a major title since then.
Pakistan on the other hand are yet to win the Champions Trophy.
The winner of this match will play the defending Champions Australia in Monday's final, Australia brushed aside England by 9 wickets yesterday in their semi final.
Pakistan won the ICC World Twenty20 tournament in England in June this year when they defeated Sri Lanka in the final at Lord's.
It is hard to see anyone upsetting the Betting Oddsand beating Australia in the final.

Dubai – Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq won the toss and decided to bat first in the third and final Test against England on Friday.

Hoping to complete a 3-0 whitewash, Pakistan brought back right-arm pacer Aizaz Cheema, whose injury after the first Test opened an unexpected door for Junaid Khan who went wicketless in the eight overs he sent down in the spinner-dominated second Test.

England, the top-ranked test team, went in with an unchanged team, hoping to salvage some pride in the match.

Top order batsman Ian Bell was named after recovering from a stomach problem and Eoin Morgan also retained his place meaning there was no recall for Ravi Bopara.

“I personally have got a lot of faith in the 11 players that played in the last two test matches,” England captain Andrew Strauss said.

“It's another opportunity for us to show that we are better than what we showed in the last Test.

“We wanted to be consistent in selection. If someone is going to be left out, it's going to be for a good reason,” added Strauss.
