Everybody knows the exact picture of the One day series so far as the Kiwis are leading 1 Nil in the competition after beating the green caps in a one sided affair on 26th January at Wellington. Pakistan camp is positive at the moment. The recent loss in the T20s has made them realize their responsibility for their country. Despite the coach Waqar Younis has set forward his resignation as the head coach, the team certainly is going to give some good vibes from Auckland.
Someone can imagine that New Zealand are determined to clean sweep the series and Pakistan’s hope in the match at Eden Park. The match is a day match. Pakistan would not in any case would pray for a rain at Auckland because that would wash away their hopes for levelling the series. The rain has made a devastating effect on the momentum of Pakistan players. The chances of winning the series no longer exist for the green caps. That was not in the plan of their books, but natural things like rain cannot be controlled in the game of cricket. The rain has stopped South Africa in the 1992 world cup to progress to the finals against Pakistan as you might remember.
The breath taking beauty of Napier gave the players a good break from their actual jobs. They Enjoyed the lovely scenery and landscapes. The ground was filled with water like a pond, that is why players are fresh from a good break during the last few days since Wellington. The New Zealand batsmen have used the Pakistani short balls to their advantages. The Australian team has also arrived in the New Zealand already for the February series against the Kiwis. The Kiwis could use this last ODI against Pakistan as a good practice before facing Australia.
