A warm, blue Napier day is forecast, which means conditions overhead should be as suited to run-making as those underfoot. The last time Pakistan played here, New Zealand hit 369 in the first innings.
Misbah-ul-Haq, at 40, and Tauqir Ahmed, at 43, are the oldest captains in the tournament.
UAE have only played Pakistan twice before, in 1994 and 1996. Both were nine-wicket wins for Pakistan.
Shahid Afridi is two away from 8000 ODI runs. Assuming he gets to the mark in the next ODI, his batting average around 23.52 will be comfortably the lowest for any batsman to have hit the 8000 mark. His strike rate of around 116, however, will easily be the highest.
Nine of UAE's 15-man squad are of Pakistani origin.
