While the batting and bowling units delivered against South Africa, fielding is an area of concern for Pakistan and Sarfaraz too admitted that the team will need to pull up its socks. "All three matches now are very crucial and we have to sort it out", Sarfaraz told the reporters ahead of their clash against New Zealand.
"After forming a gameplan, we must utilize it on the field by involving ourselves in excessive training, as the more you practice [you do], the better you get", Miandad was quoted as saying by the Business Recorder. New Zealand is second on the points table with 11 points and Pakistan rose to seventh place after defeating South Africa on Sunday and has five points.
Captain Kane Williamson and his Black Caps go into their match against Pakistan at Edgbaston on Wednesday (9.30pm NZT) assured of a place in the top-four barring a freakish sequence of results in the 13 remaining preliminary matches. Again we dropped so many catches (against South Africa), some straightforward and some half-chances. Though the side looked jittery on a couple of occasions - against South Africa and the West Indies - Williamson ensured there was no slip-up.
Williamson is their highest run-getter in the tournament so far. Ross Taylor has been a supporting act, but an effective one at that, while Colin de Grandhomme has struck vital runs and chipped in with economical overs to complement the pace attack. Even all-rounders Jimmy Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme are in great shape, and that's certainly a positive for New Zealand.

New Zealand have a completely settled starting line-up and have been one of the teams unaffected by injuries so there is little reason for them to change things around unless patience with Colin Munro has finally run out following his golden ball duck on Saturday as Henry Nicholls waits in the wings. It will be bit cloudy on the day of the match.
Amir's knack of picking up wickets with both the new and old ball has been key to Pakistan's qualification hopes. He could stop Williamson and co. from going big with bats.
Speaking at a pre-match press conference ahead of New Zealand's World Cup game against Pakistan, Santner said his team knows that Pakistan is a very risky side. The batsmen and the bowlers are on song and it would be an upset should Pakistan notch a win over the Blackcaps.
