A couple of Cantabrians are expected to add strength to the New Zealand cricket batting spine when the three-match one-day international series starts against Pakistan tonight in Abu Dhabi.

Black Caps batting coach Craig McMillan expects Tom Latham and Henry Nicholls to make a difference in the middle, after a lack of experience in the 3-nil Twenty20 series defeat.

He says batsmen need to give themselves time to settle in against the slowness of the pitches and the turn, and they can do that better in ODIs than T20s.

Play is scheduled to start from midnight.
