Trent Boult's fifer helps New Zealand clinch series against Pakistan

Trent Boult's fifer helps New Zealand clinch series against Pakistan

A French-cut four by Amir from the bowling of Lockie Ferguson took Pakistan past the dreaded total of 35, then Sarfraz managed to guide his team beyond Pakistan's lowest-ever one-day total of 43 against the West Indies in 1993.

Pakistan's bowlers seemed to get better as the ball got older, making excellent use of slower, shorter deliveries which confounded the batsmen when they didn't bounce or come onto the bat as expected.

Trent Boult's fifer helps New Zealand clinch series against Pakistan

The first ODI's Highest Scorer from Pakistan Fakhar Zaman couldn't make to the Playing XI for second match for injury issue, and was replaced by Imam-ul-Haq.

Pakistan did look smart in the field and finished with a flourish taking seven wickets for 48 in the last eight overs. Pakistan came up with a much-improved performance with the ball to restrict New Zealand to 257.

White in shock recall to Australia ODI side
Chief selector Trevor Hohns had high praises for White and insisted that his present form has earned him the recall. White was surprised at the recall, although he said he never gave up hope of a return to the national side.

Guptil was also impressed with the stunning one-handed catch as he applauded the spectator from the middle of the pitch. "We wanted to get the series done", said man of the match Boult, who claimed figures of five for 17.

But Munro was out for 8 in the second over, slashing across the line at a ball from Faheem Ashraf and delivering a skied catch to Pakistan wicketkeeper and captain Sarfraz Ahmed. "Tim and Trent to start off, just built up that pressure", he said.

It was a awful showing by Pakistan after giving themselves hope of victory, only for yet another top-order collapse to take away their chances. The trio of Rumman Raees, Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan did most of the damage with the ball.

"It was very disappointing, a tough loss", said the skipper during post-match ceremony, after staying not out at 14 as the rest of the wickets crumbled around him. "Our bowlers bowled well again but the batting was a big flop".
