Everything You Need to Know About the Pakistan vs New Zealand ODI Series Rivalry

Pakistan and New Zealand will go head to head in a three-match ODI series in Karachi starting on January 9. This marks the return of the Kiwis to Pakistan after security concerns caused them to pull out of a planned series in 2021. The matches will also serve as a chance for both teams to begin preparing for the ODI World Cup, which will be held in India later this year.

In their previous 107 encounters, Pakistan has come out on top with 55 wins against New Zealand's 48 wins. There have also been three no results and one tie.
