The captain highlighted the challenges faced by fast bowlers at Eden Park, particularly due to the small straight boundary. He acknowledged the difficulty of bowling fuller as a fast bowler in such conditions. Additionally, Shaheen emphasized the larger size of the square boundary and expressed his desire for the bowling unit to capitalize on this aspect.

The inaugural T20I match of the series is scheduled to kick off tomorrow at Eden Park in Auckland. Shaheen Afridi, in his maiden series as captain, is eager to make a significant impact and aims to conclude the series on a high note.

This series marks a significant moment for Shaheen Afridi as he leads the Pakistani team against the formidable New Zealand side. The challenges posed by the unique conditions at Eden Park will test the strategic prowess of both captains, and fans are eagerly anticipating an exciting and competitive T20I series between these cricketing nations.
