Preview: After their historic victory over India on Sunday that broke their World Cup jinx against their neighbours and arch-rivals, Pakistan gear up for another historic contest on Tuesday when they take on New Zealand in their second game of the T20 World Cup.

For New Zealand, who had reached the semis in the last edition of the tournament five years earlier before losing to England, this will be their first match of their campaign. They had earlier lost both their warmup matches against Australia and England, but are nevertheless a force to be reckoned with and are counted among the sides likely to finish among the last four.

The Black Caps, however, will be up against an emotionally-charged and upbeat Pakistan side on Tuesday, a side that enters the mega event carrying with them the disappointment and frustration of the pullouts staged by New Zealand and England from their scheduled tours of Pakistan.

Pakistan got off to a winning start in the T20 World Cup with a 10-wicket hammering of India. AP

New Zealand had arrived in Pakistan for the first time since 2003, but their limited-overs tour came to an abrupt end just minutes before the start of the first one-day international in Rawalpindi, with their security officials citing a threat though they never quite disclosed the details.

England, who were supposed to send their men's and women's team just before the T20 World Cup, followed suit not long after, though they cited player workload as their reason instead of security concerns.

Having already beaten India, Pakistan will now hope to channel their frustration and anger caused by the last-minute cancellations into their performance on the field, and will hope to maintain the same clinical approach that helped them thrash the Men in Blue by 10 wickets on on Sunday.
