New Zealand will begin a new era in Test cricket after Kane Williamson stepped down from captaincy in the longest format after six years. Tim Southee, who has been appointed as Williamson’s successor, will kick-start his journey beginning with the Boxing Day Test in Karachi.
This is the first time Pakistan will be hosting the Kiwis in 20 years. New Zealand were scheduled to tour Pakistan and had reached the country as well, but the tour was cancelled in the eleventh hour due to security concerns.
The 2022/23 tour will begin with two Tests, played at the National Stadium Karachi. It will be followed by a three-match ODI series that will begin on January 10. Watch Pakistan vs New Zealand live in India.
New Zealand and Pakistan have had an abysmal outing in the ICC World Test Championship cycle of 2021-23. The defending champions are most certainly out of contention to reach the final, with a win percentage of 25.93. Pakistan are only partially better (38.89) and take the seventh spot.
Pakistan are coming into this series on the back of a forgettable outing against England. The current 50-over and 20-over world champions humbled Pakistan with a fantastic display, sweeping the three-match Test series with ease.
Pakistan have been a tough nut to crack in ODIs at home, having beaten Australia and West Indies in bilateral series comfortably. As for the Kiwis, they lost just two bilateral ODI series since losing the 2019 World Cup final, both against Australia.
