"Most of our players have been to New Zealand before, and they know how these conditions can be different from what we are used to. We need to make sure that we bat with discipline and put good scores on the board. Our bowling is very much capable of performing well in any sort of conditions." - Misbah-ul-Haq, Pakistan skipper.
"Home advantage is a good thing, I think, but it provides opportunities for both sides, and a side like Pakistan who have toured well for a while now will know that. A side that has shown they can adapt well all over the world. They've got a good seam attack, a very good spinner in Yasir Shah, and their batsmen are very experienced." - Kane Williamson, New Zealand skipper.
