New Zealand vs Pakistan 1st T20I Live Telecast Channel: The SportsRush presents before you the timing and live streaming details of the first NZ vs PAK T20I.

The first T20I of the imminent Pakistan’s tour of New Zealand will begin from tomorrow in Adelaide. Pakistan, who have earlier toured England and played at home, will now play against their third opposition in the COVID-19 era.

New Zealand, on the other hand, are coming on the back of hosting West Indies for three T20Is and two Tests and look set to repeat the same against Pakistan.

Having last toured New Zealand almost three years ago, Pakistan would be banking on the confidence of winning their last T20I series in New Zealand despite losing their first two in 2010 and 2016 respectively.

However, the visitors will have to do exceedingly well in captain Babar Azam’s absence, who has been ruled out of the T20I series due to a fractured thumb. Since his debut in 2016, Azam’s is the highest run-scorer in the format scoring 1,681 runs at an average ans strike rate of 50.93 and 130 respectively.

As was the case during West Indies’ tour of New Zealand, Pakistan’s tour of New Zealand will also not be available on television channels in India.

In another exciting offer, fans can also buy one pass for the whole tour (three T20Is and two Tests) by spending INR 49.
