The first big assignment for Pakistan after their heroic champion trophy win will start from tomorrow as they meet New Zeland in the first one day of the five-match series at Basin Reserve, Wellington. Pakistan is always a great balling unit. Having Mohammed Amir, Hasan Ali, Junaid Khan, Shadab Khan in the team, that make Pakistan a lethal bowling unit in the world and especially in the conditions of New Zealand.
Pakistan conventionally won their practice match against New Zealand XI. They look in good shape. They clean sweep Sri Lanka in the five-match series in Dubai. But now they are up against the quality team and that too in their home conditions.
New Zealand also won all the matches of the series against Windies and one look the complete dominance of the New Zealand in the recently concluded series against Windies.
For Pakistan, only concern is their batting. Against the quality of Southee and Boult, it will never be easy for the Pakistani Batsmen. For Pakistan, their experienced batsmen Hafeez, Malik, Azar Ali need to step up in New Zealand.
This time Pakistan look in good touch to win the series against New Zealand. For batsmen like Babar Azam, tours like this are very important in order to make the name in the world cricket.
