The Pakistan cricket team toured New Zealand in January 2018 to play five One Day Internationals (ODIs) and three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches.[1][2][3] New Zealand won the ODI series 5-0, their second ever 5-0 bilateral series win, the first being against the West Indies in 2000.[4][5] Pakistan won the T20I series 2–1. It was Pakistan's first T20I series win in New Zealand and as a result, Pakistan moved to the top of the ICC T20I Championship rankings.[6][7]

For the T20I series, Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson were selected only for the second and third T20I, Tim Southee was selected for first and third T20I and Ross Taylor was selected only for the first T20I.[14] Pakistan's Shoaib Malik, injured during the 4th ODI, was replaced by Umar Amin for the final ODI.[15][16] Tim Southee captained New Zealand for first T20I as Kane Williamson was ruled out due to an injury.[17] Ross Taylor and Tom Blundell were added to New Zealand's squad for the last T20I as replacements for Colin Munro and Glenn Phillips, respectively.[18]
