Former captain Daniel Vettori said New Zealand would not panic after Kane Williamson's side suffered their first defeat of the World Cup against Pakistan.

The beaten 2015 finalists had the chance to seal their semi-final place alongside Australia at Edgbaston on Wednesday but lost by six wickets as Pakistan's Babar Azam starred with the bat.

"The one thing New Zealand won't do is panic after the defeat to Pakistan. This team doesn't panic and hasn't for a long time," said Vettori in a column for the International Cricket Council.

Pakistan's Azhar questions New Zealand toughness ahead of World Cup clash

Pakistan's Azhar questions New Zealand toughness ahead of World Cup clash Pakistan bowling coach Azhar Mahmood questioned New Zealand's ability to win the biggest matches ahead of Wednesday's World Cup clash in Birmingham. 

Vettori says New Zealand have been playing well enough not to lose faith in their game-plan. The Black Caps are not assured of a semi-final berth with one game left against title rivals England next week. But Vettori remains confident the 2015 World Cup runners-up will stay calm ahead of the

New Zealand suffered their second defeat of the tournament against Australia at Lord's on Saturday, losing by 86 "I still definitely feel that this New Zealand side can make history and win it all," Vettori said Vettori says New Zealand have been playing well enough not to lose faith in their game-plan.

"They have been playing a style of cricket that has delivered success and they have won five games out of seven, with one washout."

"That success breeds confidence and calmness, so there is no point in changing strategy just because of one loss" he added. "They will stay true to how they have played for a number of years."

New Zealand remained second in the table, on 11 points, after their loss to Pakistan and look likely to reach the semi-finals despite the hiccup.

Vettori said the tournament was benefiting from a good balance between bat and ball, with early predictions of a run-fest proving wide of the mark.

"The traditional road we've seen in one-day cricket, where 350 plays 350, is not quite as prevalent and it makes for an exciting game," he said.

New Zealand's Santner warns over 'dangerous' Pakistan

New Zealand's Santner warns over 'dangerous' Pakistan Mitchell Santner said New Zealand could not afford to take "dangerous" Pakistan lightly as they attempt to seal their place in the World Cup semi-finals in Birmingham on Wednesday. Santner said Pakistan, who have lost three matches at the World Cup so far, had the ability to raise their game despite their troubles. "They took down England and took down South Africa the other day," he said. "When they're hot, they're really hot. We have to, obviously, find ways of trying to cool them down when they're like that." The left-handed batsman said skipper Kane Williamson was key to New Zealand's batting strength.

Edgbaston, June 27: The one thing New Zealand won ' t do is panic after the defeat to Pakistan, this team doesn' t panic and hasn't for a long time. I think they will remain calm and stress-free as Kane Williamson said in his post-match press conference, moving onto that next game knowing they are

"It brings the spinners into play and brings the bowlers in general into play. It allows real batsmanship to be on display. We saw that from Babar Azam, who was just exceptional."

New Zealand's next game is on Saturday against defending champions Australia, who are top of the 10-team table with 12 points, and Vettori said stopping the openers would be key.

"The big challenge in the next game against Australia at Lord's will be Aaron Finch and David Warner -- they have been exceptional in this tournament," he said.

"They have set Australia up. No one else has had to bat that much. The ability to dismiss those two early on will be crucial and more often than not, that falls on Trent Boult to do that."

New Zealand's final match of the group stage is against host nation England next Wednesday.
