PAK vs NZ Complete Schedule

Wicketkeeper batter Tom Blundell and uncapped all-rounder Zak Foulkes have been called into the squad as replacements.

"We feel for both Finn and Adam, suffering injuries so close to the start of the tour. They have been strong performers for us in the T20 format since the last World Cup.

Our support staff and medical networks will be working closely with both players over the next few weeks to complete plans for their treatment and subsequent return to cricket," head coach Gary Stead said.

New Zealand team depart from Auckland to Pakistan on Friday evening with the first T20I to be played on April 18 in Rawalpindi.
