The remaining matches of the series, consisting of five One Day matches between Pakistan and New Zealand, will now be played at the National Stadium in Karachi and the third match will take place today.
According to ARY News, the last three matches of the five One Day International matches between Pakistan and New Zealand will be played at the National Stadium in Karachi from today. The Shaheens and the Kiwis will face each other in the third match today. The match will start at 3:00 PM Pakistan Standard Time.
Pakistan has a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. By winning today’s match, the national team will not only secure an unbeatable lead in the series but will also break the 12-year drought of not winning a One Day series against New Zealand.
The aggressive Pakistani opener Fakhar Zaman has a golden opportunity to make history by scoring a consecutive fourth century in today’s match.
Pakistan has three chances to win the series while New Zealand has no margin of error and is facing the challenge of saving the series. However, in the T20 series, the Green Shirts were ahead 2-0 but the Black Caps saved the series and the series remained tied. Therefore, Pakistan cannot take New Zealand lightly now.
Both teams practiced at the National Stadium yesterday. The guest team eliminated their weaknesses and made practical plans to make a comeback in the series, while the national team aimed to equalize their account of losing the previous series.
