The PAK vs NZ ODI series follows after the five-match T20I series between Pakistan and New Zealand. The T20I series ended 2-2 with the Kiwis making a remarkable comeback in the last two games after Pakistan won the first two games. The first ODI starts at 4 pm IST which is 3.30 pm local time.
The PAK vs NZ fourth T20I was called off due to a hailstorm. There were mad scenes in Rawalpindi as the whole stadium. Hailstones the size of ping-pong balls were peppering Rawalpindi as the players ran from the field, fans fled for cover, and ground staff hurried onto the pitch. The Kiwis then made a strong comeback in the fifth T20I and drew the series on the back of a Mark Chapman maiden T20I century.
The five-match ODI series is now beautifully poised with the two teams looking for a renewed start. Babar Azam will lead Pakistan while Tom Latham will continue to lead the Kiwis in the absence of Kane Williamson.
The PAK vs NZ series had five T20Is. The first three games were played in Lahore with the final two in Rawalpindi. The PAK vs NZ ODI series then starts on April 27 and will be played till May 7. The first two ODIs will be played in Rawalpindi followed by the final three in Karachi. International cricket is back in Pakistan. They are also scheduled to host the Asia Cup later this year in September.

Both the teams have qualified for the ODI World Cup later this year in India and the series will be a great preparatory ground for both teams. Pakistan will Test the Kiwis with their spin attack and also their pace attack. The presence of Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Naseem Shah gives the Pakistan pace attack a little more edge over the Kiwis.
Once again the contest is expected to be between the Kiwi batters and the Pakistan bowlers. The Kiwi ODI squad had a few new faces with the likes of Chad Bowes, Will Young, and Cole McConchie added to the squad. The batting will once again be shouldered by skipper To Latham who will expect the rest of the batters to stand up.
