Black Caps welcome second opponents of the summer

From Morning Report, 8:45 am on 18 December 2020

The Black Caps welcome their second opponents of the summer in tonight's opening T20 cricket international against Pakistan in Auckland.

The match comes after New Zealand's two convincing T20 wins and pair of comfortable test victories over the West Indies, and for Pakistan after a troubled two weeks in managed isolation.

So will the in-form Black Caps be too good for the under-done visitors?

Or can Pakistan spring a surprise?
