New Zealand suffered their third set back during the first of the five-match ODI series against Pakistan at the Dubai Sports Complex in Dubai on Monday after opener, Anton Devcich was dismissed for 26 off Wahab Riaz. Devcich was looking good but poor footwork led to an inside edge to the ball outside off-stump to the keeper, Sarfaraz Ahmed. Currently New Zealand are 64 for the loss of three in 15 overs with Tom Latham and Ross Taylor on the crease.

Pakistan and New Zealand start a five-match one-day series in Dubai on Monday with the focus on building confidence and momentum for next year’s ICC World Cup, which is just two months away.
