New Zealand Clean-Sweeps Pakistan For 74 To Win The ODI Series

Black Caps bowler Trent Boult celebrates a wicket

Rain has affected the first two matches in Wellington and Nelson, which have been won by New Zealand.

Sarfraz Ahmed's team got through just 27.2 overs as Trent Boult (5-17) ran riot.

The Black Caps have won nine straight matches across all formats and will equal their longest winning sequence if they beat Pakistan in the third one-dayer in Dunedin today.

With Pakistan's top order decimated following a fiery spell from Kiwi paceman Trent Boult, the Men in Green were facing the ignominy of recording the lowest ever one-day worldwide score as they teetered on a scarcely believable 32-7. To add fuel to the fire, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson pulled off a fantastic one-handed catch to send Hasan Ali packing. They now lead the five-match series. We knew it would be tough, but we wanted to execute our skills. Focus is to win each game. "Have to be smart again in Hamilton", said Williamson. Martin Guptill also played a handy knock of 45 off 62 while Tom Latham paced a run-a-ball 35.


It was a terrible showing by Pakistan after giving themselves hope of victory, only for yet another top-order collapse to take away their chances.

Considering he didn't feel like he'd bowled his best when taking career best figures of 7-34 against the West Indies in Christchurch last month, it was no surprise Boult didn't get too carried away with his latest demolition job.

Taylor fell in that manner to Shadab, beaten by a short ball which failed to bounce, beat his shot and hit him in front of middle stump. The New Zealand bowlers managed to deliver 67 dot balls in the first 13 overs as wickets continued to tumble.

The rot set in quickly in the second half of the innings as the Pakistan bowling improved, some swing became available and as batsmen felt themselves under an imperative to score quickly.
