Match Details:

Tournament- Pakistan Tour of New Zealand 2018

Stadium- Basin Reserve, Wellington

Date and Time- January 06, 11:00 AM Local


Match Info:

Pakistan will play its first ODI tomorrow at Basin Reserve Wellington. They were marvelous in the practice match and would like to continue the same form when they face the real fear. However, it won’t be that much easier for them as Pakistan has won just one One Day International series since 2011 on New Zealand soil. The last two series of the visitors were whitewashed by the Black Caps. Pakistan’s batting is the biggest concern. On the other hand, defeating Blackcaps in their home condition is really a very tough job. They have recently uprooted West Indies and would be eyeing to deliver same treatment to Pakistan. Moreover, PAK Vs NZ match preview is listed below.
