________________________________

WELLINGTON: Pakistan have won the toss and elected to field in first One Day International against New Zealand at the Basin Reserve in Wellington on Saturday (January 6).

The match will get under way at 3am according to Pakistan Standard Time and SAMAA will bring ball by ball coverage.

The five ODIs will be followed by three Twenty20 Internationals.

Pakistan have recently completed a 5-0 sweep in an ODI series against Sri Lanka in the UAE while New Zealand have conquered West Indies in all three formats.

The two sides are well-matched in terms of form.

New Zealand all-rounder Doug Bracewell was ruled out of the first two ODIs due to an injury, having only just returned from a lengthy spell on the side-lines in December. However, the likes of Colin Munro, who became the only player to score three T20I centuries with a ton against West Indies, captain Kane Williamson, and Martin Guptill, who returned to form with a half-century in the final T20I, should give the hosts much to be confident about.

Sarfraz Ahmed’s men could be troubled by the New Zealand pace attack, led by Tim Southee and Trent Boult.

The Pakistan attack will be led by Mohammed Amir, who would pair-up with Hasan Ali, the top-ranked ODI bowler.

Azhar Ali, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik and Babar Azam – their top run-scorer in ODIs in 2017 – form the batting core, with Fakhar Zaman, the opening batsman, capable of giving the visitors a brisk start, along the lines of that match-defining century in the Champions Trophy 2017 final.

Sarfraz Ahmed will also lead a fairly young bunch on tour, including Mohammad Nawaz and Shadab Khan, the spinners, and Imam-ul-Haq, 22-year-old opening batsman and the nephew of former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq.

The last time these two sides competed against each other was in January 2016, when Pakistan visited New Zealand for a limited-overs series. On that occasion, New Zealand won the three-match ODIs series 2-0. That series had also marked the return of Amir to international cricket, following his five-year ban.

Teams (from):

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (cap), Todd Astle, George Worker, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Colin Munro, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor.

Pakistan: Sarfraz Ahmed (cap), Azhar Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik,  Mohammad Hafeez, Haris Sohail, Faheem Ashraf, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali, Aamer Yamin, Rumman Raees.
