Now, they are chasing a record 11th consecutive win in all formats of the game.

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson, unsurprisingly was not concerned after losing the toss, he said,"Conditions early in the match should suit his pace attack."

"We were actually going to have a bowl."

"In some of these day-night games perhaps you'll get a bit of dew later on" he added.

Pakistan has made one change, replaced batsman Haris Sohail with Azhar Ali and also New Zealand included allrounder Colin de Grandhomme.


New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult.
