Pakistan keen to field strongest line-up every match

While the Black Caps look set to continue with it, rotation is something the Pakistanis are staying well clear of in this series.

Although the New Zealanders are wanting to give all of their squad some game time ahead of the World Cup, the Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi says they'll be sticking to pretty much the same lineup and rotation isn't for them.

Afridi thinks Brendam McCullum should open and he can't understand why the Otago star is batting down the order.
