The PAK vs NZ 1st ODI is slated to start from 3:30 PM IST on 17 September.
New Zealand are not fielding their A team, due to the workload and IPL. The team will miss their key players, and Pakistan will surely have the advantage of having their regular team and knowing the conditions very well. Last time New Zealand played a series here in Pakistan, was back in 2003, they lost it badly by 5-0. This series won’t be a part of the ODI super league, as Pakistan couldn’t arrange the DRS setup for the series. NZ will be without Tom Blundell, who suffered a strain, and Finn Allen could make his debut in the game.
