Black Sticks to host Pakistan men's series

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 16/02/2017

Newly-appointed Black Sticks men's coach Darren Smith will get the first test of his mettle in a home series against Pakistan in March.

World No.8 New Zealand will host the 14th-ranked visitors three times in Wellington from March 17.

The five-Test series concludes with matches in Clareville on March 22-23, the first time the team will have played an international in the Wairarapa region.

It is New Zealand's first series of the year and the first under former long-serving Black Stick Smith, who this week was named the replacement for departed head coach Colin Batch.
