NZ to focus on Pakistan ODI death bowling

Prior to third ODI, Pakistan Cricket Team held a practice session at University Oval wherein endeavors were made to overcome the flaws which led the Side to suffer defeats at Wellington and Nelson. New Zealand vs Pakistan 3rd ODI will begin at 3:30 am IST on January 13 and the match will be telecast live on Star Sports Select 1/HD.

New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat first in the third ODI at Dunedin on Saturday.

Former chief selector Salahuddin Ahmed Sallu backed Pakistan to bounce back in the on-going ODI series against New Zealand despite being 0-2 down and said that the brilliant comeback of Sarfraz Ahmed's men in the Champions Trophy past year is proof enough that the team has the ability and talent to surprise the opposition.

For Pakistan, Fakhar Zaman, who scored an unbeaten 82 in the opening game, is expected to return to the side after missing the second game because of a thigh injury. "The key will be playing with confidence, avoid loose shots and remove any pressure that they have on their mind", Nazir said. "If Fakhar plays and scores, then his partners need to support him well".

Heynckes expects the Germany worldwide to fit seamlessly into their system. He can also play well with his back to goal.

Former Pakistan global Ramiz Raja, now a cricket commentator, questioned the Pakistan team's temperament in the first two ODIs. Batsmen were scared of the short-pitched deliveries.

Pakistan rocketed from 141 for 7 in the 37th over to make 246 for 9 in the second game, with Shadab Khan and Hasan Ali both making half-centuries.

"Muhammad Amir is a very good bowler and the host do show signs of distress while facing him, so he should try to find his form".

Talking to media here, Sallu said: "The first two ODIs were hit by rain and were decided on the Duckworth-Lewis method, so we can't really say what would have been the outcome of the matches if the full 50 overs were bowled. They can do well if they concentrate on the game plan laid out by the captain and the coach".
