Pakistan vs New Zealand 2018 Schedule, Team Squads

Pakistan vs New Zealand 2018Pakistan will host New Zealand in a full series in UAE from October 2018 onward and you can find entire Pakistan vs New Zealand schedule, live streaming options, tickets information, squads and predictions and tips for that series below. The series was expected to be played in Malaysia but the decision was changed and the original plan to have UAE host the tour was retained.

This series between Pakistan and the Kiwis is expected to follow the one between Pakistan and Australia with UAE hosting that too. This series will have three Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is, unlike the Aussie series where the focus is wholly on the ODIs in the lead-up to the World Cup.

Pakistan will enter this series having featured in the Asia Cup that saw them crash out before they managed to reach the final, having lost to India on two separate occasions, and after having beaten Australia 1-0 and 3-0 respectively in Tests and T20Is. All these matches were played in UAE on similar tracks which should make for an excellent match-up against New Zealand.

The one team that has fought hard despite the obvious lack of resources is New Zealand and they showed that even on their tour of India where they performed reasonably well in 2017 before closing out the series.

The issue for New Zealand could be they are coming out of a barren period, i.e. they haven’t played too many matches heading into this series, which is why there could always be a rustiness problem for them heading into this tour. Their opponents have just thrashed Zimbabwe 5-0 and as mentioned above will be playing in the Asia Cup and the series against Australia before this.

New Zealand has named all their squads for this tour, including uncapped spinner Ajaz Patel in the Test match line-up for this series. Two more players are to be added to the New Zealand squad for the T20Is at the end of their A tour against the Pakistan A side. Pakistan vs New Zealand in UAE, 2018 schedule is placed below.

    Pakistan should play ODI series with New Zealand(or any team) before Asia cup. Even pakistan has not played in UAE since long time.
