Dubai - Pakistan captain Misbah-ul Haq won the toss and sent New Zealand into bat in the first of five one-day internationals in Dubai on Monday.

Both teams shared the preceding three-Test and two Twenty20 series 1-1.

Pakistan included all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez as batsman despite his suspension over an illegal bowling action.

New Zealand's opener Martin Guptill and all-rounder Corey Anderson were missing due to fitness problems.

Teams:

Pakistan: Misbah-ul Haq (captain), Mohammad Hafeez, Ahmed Shehzad, Asad Shafiq, Haris Sohail, Mohammad Irfan, Sarfraz Ahmed, Shahid Afridi, Umar Gul, Wahab Riaz, Younis Khan

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Dean Brownlie, Anton Devcich, Tom Latham, Nathan McCullum, Kyle Mills, Adam Milne, James Neesham, Luke Ronchi, Ross Taylor, Daniel Vettori

Umpires: Aleem Dar (PAK) and Joel Wilson (WIS)

Tv umpire: Richard Illingworth (ENG)

Match referee: Roshan Mahanama (SRI)
