New Zealand wicketkeeper-batsman, Luke Ronchi was dismissed on 23 by Mohmmad Irfan after being caught off Younis Khan during the first of the five-match ODI series against Pakistan at the Dubai Sports Complex in Dubai on Monday. Currently New Zealand are 159 for the loss of six wickets with Ross Taylor batting on 62 while Daniel Vettori comes in.

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. It promises to be a keenly-fought contest after they ended honours even in both the three-Test series and the two-match Twenty20.
