After the thrilling Test series, which ended in a draw, Pakistan and New Zealand are set to face each other in the One-Day International (ODI) leg, starting Monday (January 09) at the iconic National Stadium in Karachi.
The three-match rubber will come in handy for both sides regarding the preparations for the ODI World Cup, which is scheduled to take place in India later this year. The Black Caps would compete against the Men in Blue after the battle versus Babar Azam’s Pakistan, giving them enough opportunity to prepare for the ICC event.
Pakistan haven’t played an ODI series since last five months. Their previous 50-overs leg was against the Netherlands in August when the Men in Green registered a clean sweep over the hosts (3-0). On the other hand, New Zealand, the top-ranked ODI team, hosted India after the 2022 T20 World Cup for the limited-over games.
