Abu Dhabi, November 09 at 04:30 PM IST
Trent Boult hat-trick rocked Pakistan on Wednesday as New Zealand extended their winning streak in ODIs against Pakistan to 12. Recently turned dad, Trent Boult sent back Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam and Mohammad Hafeez in the third over to stall Pakistan’s chase.
Earlier, New Zealand put on a spirited show with the bat. Coming into the 50-over series after 3-0 loss in the T20s, Blackcaps set Pakistan a target of 267. Ross Taylor and Tom Latham were the stars with the bat for Blackcaps, rescuing their side after they were reduced to 78/3 in seventeen over. The late charge by the tailenders also helped the cause.
In reply, Pakistan suffered three back-to-back blows early in the chase and come out of it. Sarfraz Ahmed and Imad Wasim tried with the bat but it was too late for the hosts. To draw the series level, they must step up here, particularly with the bat.
