Pakistan is 1-0 down in the three-match ODI series after New Zealand drew first blood in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

New Zealand won the first ODI comprehensively by 47 runs. Defending an above par total of 266-9, the visitors folded Pakistan for 219 runs in 47.2 overs.

Online streaming and TV details

PTV Sports will televise the match live in Pakistan. Sky Sports NZ will provide live coverage in New Zealand.

Pakistan's top order was rattled by Trent Boult's hat trick in the previous game, which ultimately led to the defeat. On Friday, they would hope to get a good start with the bat and continue to bowl as they did in the previous game. Pakistan is expected to opt for an unchanged line-up for this crucial game which will definitely decide which way the series goes.

Seamers key to New Zealand's success

New Zealand produced a clinical performance with both the bat and the ball in the last game. Surprisingly, New Zealand opted for only one spinner, as the Abu Dhabi pitch favours spinner.

The visitors will need just one more such performance to secure the ODI series, which would be a great relief for them after their series whitewash in the T2Os.

Pitch and weather info

The pitch to be used for the second game will be the exact one that was used in the first game, hence we can expect the ball to grip a bit. The ball turns on this track making it difficult to play, especially when the ball is old.

The weather in Abu Dhabi will be, as usual, hot and dry in the afternoon with a little breeze blowing across the ground in the evening.
