New Zealand Women vs Pakistan Women T20Is 2023 will start on December 3 and run till December 9 in New Zealand.

New Zealand Women will host Pakistan Women for a three-match T20I series at home. Currently, the White Ferns are ranked third in the ICC Women’s T20I rankings, while Pakistan are placed at the eighth position.

As far as the head-to-head battle is concerned, New Zealand Women have completely dominated Pakistan Women in the T20I format, winning all the eight games played so far.

The Kiwis will enter the T20I series following an underwhelming tour of South Africa, where they played a three-match ODI series and five T20Is. They faced a setback in the ODIs, losing 1-2. The T20I series, however, ended in a 1-1 draw, with three matches being abandoned.

Regardless, the series witnessed a historic moment with Suzie Bates becoming the first women batter to achieve the 4000-run mark in T20 international matches.

Meanwhile, after a disappointing campaign at the Asian Games, Pakistan Women lost a three-match T20I series against Bangladesh. 

Nida Dar will lead Pakistan in New Zealand and will be backed by the likes of Aliya Riaz, Bismah Maroof, and Diana Baig.

As per the New Zealand Women vs Pakistan Women T20Is 2023 schedule, the first and second T20Is are scheduled to be played at the University Oval in Dunedin, while Queenstown’s John Davies Oval will host the final match of the series on December 9.
