Pakistan to face New Zealand in first ODI
New Zealand won the toss and opted to bat against Pakistan in the first one-day international at Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

The match will start at 4pm in the evening.

Earlier, Pakistan defeated New Zealand by 47 runs in the third and final Twenty20 international in Dubai to claim another clean-sweep in the game’s shortest format.

Pakistan were lifted to 166-3 by Babar Azam who made a 58-ball 79 with seven boundaries and two sixes while Mohammad Hafeez hit a 34-ball 53 with four boundaries and two sixes.

When on 48, Azam became the quickest to score 1,000 Twenty20 runs in just 26 innings beating India’s Virat Kohli’s record by an innings.

Leg-spinner Shadab Khan took 3-30 as New Zealand were bundled out for 119 in 16.5 overs.
