Pakistan are missing a key bowler as Junaid Khan continues to recover from a nerve-related thigh injury, but as ever, their bowling talents are so wicked and varied. On the other hand, it's unclear if Adam Milne has recovered sufficiently from his side strain, but the remainder of New Zealand's world cup squad should be available for the match. Pakistan and New Zealand have so far played 94 matches, out of which Pakistan got victory in 53 while kiwis has won 38 matches. One match ended in a draw while two matches ended in no result. The second match of the series will be played on 3rd of February in Napier.
