The Kiwis were manhandled in the T20I series as they lost 3-0. But they made a fighting comeback by winning the first ODI. Ross Taylor has been the standout batsman for the Black Caps so far as he scored a match-winning century in the first game. In the second game also, he was the top-scorer. But the inability of other batsmen has hurt the visitors.
On the other hand, Pakistan’s batsmen put behind the failures of the first game and roared in the next. Fakhar Zaman found his form back in Abu Dhabi that adds to the strength. The pacer Shaheen Afridi has been the best bowler for the Men in Green. Going by the experience of the conditions, Pakistan holds the advantage in the last game before the Test series starts.
