The New Zealand cricket team toured Pakistan in April and May 2023 to play five One Day International (ODI) matches and five Twenty20 International (T20I) matches.[1][2] The tour was to make up for the series that was postponed in September 2021.[3] The ODI series was not part of the Super League.[4] However, it formed part of both teams' preparations for the 2023 Cricket World Cup.[5]

In April 2022, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed that the series would be taking place.[6][7] In May 2022, New Zealand Cricket confirmed that they would compensate the PCB for the postponed series,[8] as well as playing extra matches on the tour.[9] In October 2022, the PCB announced the fixtures for the tour.[10] In April 2023, the PCB announced the revised fixtures for the tour.[11]

Prior to this tour, New Zealand toured Pakistan in December 2022 and January 2023 to play two Test matches and three ODIs.[12][13]

Pakistan defeated New Zealand by 88 runs in the first T20I,[14] and went on to win the second T20I by 38 runs to lead the series 2–0.[15] New Zealand won the third T20I by a margin of 4 runs to keep themselves alive in the series.[16] The fourth T20I ended with no results due to a hailstorm, with the series standing at 2–1.[17] New Zealand won the last T20I by 6 wickets to level the series 2–2.[18]

Pakistan won the first ODI by 5 wickets[19] and went on to win the second ODI by 7 wickets to lead the series 2–0.[20] Pakistan again won the third ODI by 26 runs to take the unassailable lead in the series, winning their first ODI series against New Zealand since 2011.[21] Pakistan won the fourth ODI by 102 runs and moved a step towards a series white-wash.[22]

Squads

ODIs T20Is
 Pakistan[23]  New Zealand[24]  Pakistan[25]  New Zealand[26]

Pakistan named their full-strength squad for both the series,[27] after resting their several senior players during three-match T20I series against Afghanistan which concluded in March 2023.[28] Whereas, New Zealand were without their several first-choice players,[29][30] due to either injury or playing in the 2023 Indian Premier League.[31]

On 24 April 2023, Mohammad Haris was added to Pakistan's ODI squad.[32] On 25 April 2023, Mark Chapman was added to New Zealand's ODI squad.[33] Haris Sohail injured his left shoulder just before the start of ODI series,[34] and was ruled out of Pakistan's ODI squad.[35] On 29 April 2023, Iftikhar Ahmed was named as his replacement.[36]
