Pakistan are aiming to carry wining momentum of their T20I success when they square off against New Zealand for the first ODI against in Abu Dhabi. They might be the top cricketing side in the shortest format but have been found struggling in ODIs. In their last ODI tournament, the 2018 Asia Cup in the UAE, they lost to India, twice, and exited the tournament after losing to Bangladesh in what was a virtual semi-final. With the World Cup months away, they have to sort out their issues.

On the other hand, New Zealand, despite a 0-3 clean sweep in the preceding T20I series, will take confidence from their 11-match winning streak in the ODIs against Pakistan. They also have issues of their own to address but the arrival of a couple of players must have boosted their confidence.

Below are the full details of when, where and how you can watch and follow the 1st ODI between Pakistan and New Zealand.
