Pakistan would be hosting New Zealand for a three-match ODI series, the first of which gets underway on September 17, Friday. New Zealand, who are touring Pakistan after a gap of 18 long years, would be without most of their main players, the likes of which include Kane Williamson, Kyle Jamieson and Trent Boult amongst others and so, it is indeed a great opportunity for the hosts to capitalise and potentially dominate the series. However, no matter who wins the series, this series would have no impact on the World Cricket League. This happened as a result of the Pakistan Cricket Board not being able to ensure the availability of the Decision Review System (DRS) technology for this series. However, this series still promises to be a thrilling one, because the visitors wouldn't possibly have the burden of expectations weighing on them, owing to the fact that they are fielding a depleted side for the series.

Pakistan on the other hand, would be keen on making a mark in this series and with home advantage, they would be favourites for the win. The last ODI series between these two sides had ended in a 1-1 draw. This time, New Zealand would hope for a spirited performance from its inexperienced side after failing to make a mark against Bangladesh. But Pakistan would be no easy opponents.
