New Zealand and Pakistan  face off in a three-match Twenty20 International series. The first T20I will be played at Westpac Stadium, Wellington. Pakistan were thoroughly dominated by New Zealand in the One-Day International series. The conditions are expected to be wet and rainy.

The live cricket streaming of the match will be available in India on hotstar.com, while the live telecast will be available on Star Sports Select 1 and Star Sports Select 1 HD. In New Zealand, the live streaming would be available on SkyGo, along with the live telecast on Sky Sport NZ.

The series will see a lot of players make comeback for the home side. For New Zealand, the likes of Glenn Phillips, Seth Rance, Tom Bruce, Anaru Kitchen, Ish Sodhi and Ben Wheeler come in. With Shoaib Malik ruled out of the series, much will depend on the likes of Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Hafeez, and Babar Azam.
