Pakistan VS New Zealand Preview:
Jubilant Pakistan will play in ODI .They won their 11th consecutive t20 series victory in UAE. They are the favorites to clinch the ODI series as well. Tom Latham joined the side after missing out in t20’s. His addition definitely adds strength to New Zealand’s batting.
Pakistan’s form in ODI format is not promising. They lost to Bangladesh and failed to reach finals of Asia Cup. But they are not short of talent. In fact current number one ODI bowler is from Pakistan, Hasan Ali. Extra pressure will be on him to provide early breakthroughs .Imad Wasim and shadab Khan are in peak of their career and can take spin responcibility on their Own. It was shadab Khan’s bowling which turned match around for Pakistan in third t20. Mohd hafezz can also lend his hand to them. Hasan Ali will be accompanied by shaheen shah afridi and Junaid Khan.
Imam up Haq is back in the side to open the batting. He missed out t20’s due to injury. Fakhar Zaman will open the batting with him. Babar Adam could be Virat Kohli of Pakistan. He is very young and Pakistan can encourage him more chances. But it’s still long way to go.
ODI are not high scoring in UAE. So team batting first should not aim for huge score. They should try to score 250-300 and back their bowlers.
Histort at this pitch is definitely in favor of New Zealand. Both teams payed again each other at this venue for five occasions. New Zealand won four of them convincingly. Abu Dhabi will host the ODI match on nov 7th.
