NAPIER: Pakistan and New Zealand will face off in Mcleans Park, Napier in the fourth One Day International today (Tuesday) as the series is at even-Stevens after Pakistan's victory at Christchurch. Pakistan showed their real aggression during the third ODI where M Hafeez, Shahid Afridi, Umar Akmal, and Misbah-ul-Haq did the job with the bat which also reminded cricket fans the old days of building the innings in the initial over and then going for everything in the death overs. With the firepower that Pakistan possess in the middle and late middle order including Umar Akmal, Shahid Afridi, Abdul Razzaq, Kamran Akmal, and Wahab Riaz, they can afford really to play at around four runs in an hour till 30 overs mark and then turn it on in the final stages of the innings. Now as both teams have won one match apiece, all eyes are on Napier where a fierce battle is expected as Kiwis will have their regular captain Daniel Vettori back in the ranks while Pakistan are expected to replace Sohail Tanvir with either Abdur Rehman or Shoaib Akhtar. Good thing for Pakistan is that their batsmen have finally started to find some form with Hafeez and Umar Akmal both looked in great touch in the third ODI while skipper Shahid Afridi also silenced his many critics with a strong show at AMI Stadium. Once again, experienced Hafeez and young Ahmad Shehzad will open for Pakistan, followed by Younus Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq. Then Pakistan's strong and fiery middle order starts with Umar Akmal at number five, skipper Afridi at number six, Abdul Razzaq at seven, and wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal at number eight. Another good thing for Pakistan is that once a fragile looking tail-end now has transformed into an able batting as Wahab Riaz, Umar Gul, and Sohail Tanvir all can swing the bat in the later stages of the innings. On the other hand, New Zealand are still struggling to find just the perfect batting order as they have tried Brendon McCullum down the order to give their middle order some strength. However, it's quite a questionable approach because they already have the services of Jacob Oram there and demoting McCullum so lower in the order actually gives their opposition the chance to stop the scoring rate right at the top. Martin Guptill is the one batsman who has shown some guts in the top order and together with Jesse Ryder can be quite a lethal combination. However, Black Caps team management is more eager to use this ODI series as an opportunity to experiment rather than winning it as it is expected that John Wright will try new combinations at Napier. Pakistan have won two out of their last five matches while New Zealand have only won one match from their last clashes. Napier has quite a history as cricket venue. Batsmen always enjoy their outings at Napier as cricket fans normally get to see high-scoring matches in the short ground. When captains win toss at Napier, they normally decided to bat first as the record shows that in the last ten One Day Internationals played at this venue, teams batting first won seven out of them. Left-arm spinner Luke Woodcock and pace bowler Kyle Mills have been released to play domestic matches after Vettori and Ryder's inclusion, while Kane Williamson replaces James Franklin in the all-rounder slot. The Black Caps were pegged back to 1-1 in the six-match series with a 43-run loss in the third ODI at Christchurch, which followed their nine-wicket win in the opening game. A team spokesman confirmed Jacob Oram would be 12th man, as the selectors' rotation policy continues. Pakistan coach Waqar Younis said there would only be one change at the most from Saturday's winning side. Pakistan squad: Ahmad Shehzad, M Hafeez, Younus Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq, Umar Akmal, Kamran Akmal, Shahid Afridi (skipper), Abdul Razzaq, Abdur Rehman/Sohail Tanvir/Shoaib, Umar Gul, and Wahab Riaz. New Zealand: Ryder, Guptill, Taylor , Styris, Williamson, Jamie How, B. McCullum (wk), Vettori (skipper), N. McCullum, Tim Southee, and Hamish Bennett.
