Pitch report

In recent years, the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium pitch has proven to be a batting paradise. It helps seamers in the first few overs, but once the shine wears off the ball, batters can dig in and hit big runs.

Weather Report

The weather in Rawalpindi is expected to be cloudy and pleasant during the match. The relative humidity for the game will be close to 25%. 


Pakistan will be disappointed that they did not win the T20I series against New Zealand. They had their best team available but fell short. They can, however, make amends in the ODI series. This is a very well-balanced unit with a lot of good options in both departments.

Captain Babar Azam is expected to take the lead. He’s the man in form for Pakistan, having scored 647 runs at an average of 73 in his last ten matches, and will pose the most difficult challenge to the Kiwi bowlers in the series. It would not be surprising if he ends up with the most runs in the series. Another batter to keep an eye on is Fakhar Zaman (375 runs in the last 10 matches at an average of 37.50).

Pakistan Playing XI

Babar Azam (c), Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Haris Sohail, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, Usama Mir

New Zealand  

New Zealand has given themselves a huge boost by tying the T20I series 2-2. They will face a greater challenge in the One-Day Internationals. In the absence of regulars such as Kane Williamson, Devon Conway, Michael Bracewell, and Mitchell Santner, the visitors will have to punch above their weight to make an impression.

Mark Chapman led the T20I run-scoring charts with 290 runs at an impressive strike rate of 165.71. He has been called up to the ODI squad and will be crucial in the middle order. In the absence of the other experienced batters, Tom Latham will bring all of his experience and will have to lead from the front. The other two batters who can make an impact are Tom Blundell and Daryl Mitchell.

New Zealand Playing XI

Tom Latham (c), Chad Bowes, Mark Chapman, Tom Blundell (wk), Henry Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell, Jimmy Neesham, Matt Henry, Adam Milne, Rachin Ravindra, Ish Sodhi

Pakistan vs New Zealand Match Prediction

Given the balance of their squad and the inexperience of the New Zealand lineup, the hosts will start as favorites in this game. It will be more difficult for the visitors to win games in the ODI series based on some freak knocks, as they will require a lot more consistency from the batting unit. Their batters may not disappoint, but their bowling attack, which tends to leak a lot of runs, may be their biggest detriment.
