New Zealand haven’t toured Pakistan since 2003-04. In 2002, an explosion outside the teams’ hotel killed 14 people and brought the Karachi Test as well as the series to an abrupt halt. International teams have not travelled to Pakistan since March 2009, when a bus transporting the Sri Lankan team to the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore came under gunfire.
The teams last played a bilateral series in 2010-11, when New Zealand hosted Pakistan for three T20Is, two Tests and six ODIs. New Zealand won the T20 series 2-1, but Pakistan clinched the Tests 1-0 with a ten-wicket win in Hamilton, and took the ODIs 3-2.
