The Pakistan cricket team did not have a great outing against New Zealand in the T20Is, as they lost the series to the hosts by a 2-1 margin. The visitors will now don the whites to take on the Kiwis in the first Test at Bay Oval.

Unfortunately, Pakistan will miss their captain Babar Azam in this Test. Mohammad Rizwan will have the opportunity to lead the Pakistan cricket team for the first time. However, the upcoming Test will be the most challenging game of Rizwan's career because New Zealand are on a four-match winning streak.

Earlier this year, both the Indian cricket team and the West Indies fell to big series losses against New Zealand. Kane Williamson's men have a golden chance to sneak into the Top 2 of the points table with an excellent performance against Pakistan. They will look to win both matches and strengthen their candidature for a spot in the ICC World Test Championship finale.

New Zealand have hosted only one Test at the Bay Oval. They defeated the England cricket team by an innings and 65 runs in that fixture. The hosts will look forward to registering another comprehensive win in Mount Maunganui.
