New Zealand after beating the Sri Lankan team in 7-Match ODI series is looking forward to the next series having Pakistan as opponent. This ODI series consisting of 2 matches and is last meeting before the World Cup 2015 starts.
Pakistan played against New Zealand at UAE by the end of 2014, but New Zealand have played 7-match ODI series against Sri Lanka and got victorious too. So a huge boost of confidence for the host New Zealand, a test of nerves for Pakistan because they have to test their form at New Zealanders pitches where the Cricket World Cup 2015 will be played.
New Zealand and Pakistan face off in 1st of the 2-match ODI series at Wellington on Saturday and they will gear up before the World Cup 2015 preparations. Now the recent conditions favor the host in last 20 games they played against each other.
Pakistan and New Zealand record of their last 20 matches backs New Zealand as they have won 13 matches while the Dark Horses got victorious for 13 times against Pakistan, and that’s a better record than Green Shirts.
