It's the final of the New Zealand T20i Tri-series cricket with the bigger pair of the teams making it the event that had most expect - hosts New Zealand vs Pakistan.

Here's how to watch a T20i Tri-series live stream from anywhere for Pakistan vs Bangladesh.

The Kiwis are missing one or two batsmen but it didn't seem to bother them in their outings in the Tri-series. They've had two good wins over Bangladesh and a very impressive victory against the Men in Green. They'll consider this an excellent warm up for the World Cup in Australia if they can walk away with the trophy come the tri-series final too.

Pakistan, meanwhile, look very impressive when they're firing on all cylinders. Their deadly trio of Mohammad Rizwan, Haris Rauf and captain Babar Azam are tough for any side to deal with when all three are on song, although a niggle to Rauf is a cause for concern ahead of the trip to Australia.

Bangladesh will sit this one out and have very much looked like the also-rans of this series. Can they regroup in time to make this experience count once they get over to Oz?

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