Pakistan vs New Zealand 1st Test Live Cricket Streaming: After a riveting limited overs series, Pakistan is ready to lock horns with New Zealand in the red-ball format. After blanking the Kiwis in the T20I series 3-0 and then settling for a draw in the ODIs as the last game got washed out due to rain, Pakistan will be upbeat to put up a commendable show against New Zealand. The Test series is expected to be a close contest as the Kiwis have the ability to adapt to conditions faster than other big teams.
It would also be interesting to see how the Kiwis play as they have not played this format in the last seven months and this happens to be the format that is most challenging.
Prior to this UAE tour, they have not featured in an International game since April. Their last Test match away from home was during the 2016 tour of India and have played only 11 Tests in these two years.
