ABOUT THE MATCH

Having completed a 3-0 whitewash in the T20 series, Pakistan now host New Zealand in the UAE in a 3 match ODI series, with the first two matches to be played in Abu Dhabi.

Match Preview

Pakistan and New Zealand have met 103 times in ODIs, with Pakistan winning 53 and New Zealand winning 47. The last time the two sides met was in a 5 match series in New Zealand in January this year when the hosts won 5-0. Revenge looks to be on the cards!

iconPakistan Team News

All rounders Mohammad Hafeez and Imad Wasim are back in the squad for the ODI series. Hafeez missed the Zimbabwe tour as well as the Asia Cup but impressed in the T20 series against Australia and New Zealand to force his way back. Wasim seems to have overcome the fitness issues that have kept him out of the side since last year.

Pacer Mohammad Amir has been left out of the 15 member squad since he went wicketless in 3 matches at the Asia Cup.

Having missed the final T20, all rounder Corey Anderson will miss the ODI series as well due to a heel injury. Another fitness concern for the Kiwis is legspinner Todd Astle who is certain to miss the first ODI due to a knee injury. Left arm spinner Ajaz Patel, who made his international debut in the recently concluded T20 series, has been called in as cover.

Pitch Conditions

 

With the Asia Cup followed by the Australia series, a lot of cricket has been played in the UAE in the last 2 months. The pitch is unlikely to change but after the first session, there won’t be much in it for the bowlers. A typical hot day is expected in Abu Dhabi.

Toss Prediction

 

The team winning the toss is likely to bat first.

Our Match Prediction

Pakistan will most likely carry their momentum and win the first match.
