Mohali - New Zealand captain Kane Williamson won the toss and elected to bat in the World Twenty20 group match against Pakistan in Mohali on Tuesday.

The Kiwis, unbeaten in the tournament so far, fielded an unchanged side for the crunch game at the Punjab Cricket Association ground where a win will take them to the semi-finals.

Pakistan made two changes from the squad that lost to India in Kolkata, bringing in Imad Wasim and Khalid Latif in place of injured duo Mohammad Hafeez and Wahab Riaz.
