New Zealand is all set to play their first ODI series at the National Stadium in Karachi after 2003, when hosts had whitewashed them by 0-5. However it was a long way back and now New Zealand have evolved themselves as one of the strongest sides in International Cricket.

All eyes will be on the captaincy of Babar Azam who have failed to win test matches at home and now KIWIs are ready to put up another strong competition against them on Monday. New Zealand, the top ranked ODI team will be in action to prepare for the upcoming 50 overs World Cup this year.

New Zealand have won six of their last seven ODI series since January 2021, however none of the wins came in Asian countries so it’s going to be a challenge for them to cope up with the situation. They will be touring India just after this series for some white ball action which will help them to become friendly with the situations as 50 overs WC is going to be held in India only.

Pakistan, too have a very good record at home when it comes to ODIs as they are undefeated in all the last five series played at the home soil since 2015. Pakistan have lost just one series and won four out of the five ODI series from January 2021 which makes this faceoff a nail biting competition
