Pakistan come into the match following their dead rubber victory over Bangladesh on Thursday, with the Men In Green making hard work of the series whipping boys. Pakistan eventually prevailed with a seven-wicket victory, in large thanks to another century stand from Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan, but they were made to work for their win thanks to some disciplined bowling from Bangladesh.

A lacklustre showing from Pakistan's middle order will have raised concerns going into this month's World Cup, and they'll be keen to cast aside such fears with a stronger showing in this final.

Having lost to Pakistan in the opening match of this series, hosts New Zealand have since gone from strength to strength in this mini tournament, with the form of opener Devon Conway a real boost as they head over the Tasman Sea. 

The Black Caps got their revenge on Pakistan in Game 4 with a resounding nine-wicket win over Babar Azam’s team. They look well placed for another victory on home turf today.

The Tri-series final between New Zealand and Pakistan, begins at 3am BST / 3pm NZDT / 10pm ET / 7pm PT on Friday October 14. Follow our guide to get a New Zealand vs Pakistan live stream now and watch T20i Tri-series international online from wherever you are.
