  • NZ vs PAK ODIs Trent Boult destroys Pakistan as New Zealand take series

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

Trent Boult did the initial damage, reducing Pakistan to 3/2 inside four overs.

Pakistan has been comprehensively embarrassed by New Zealand in today's ODI in Dunedin.

Pakistan's reply got off to a bad start when Boult took three wickets for four runs in his first five-over spell.

Earlier in the day, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and chose to bat on a slow pitch.

The overwhelming win gave New Zealand an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the five-match series. But I suppose the biggest learning curve as a fast bowler is making the change and being able to get wickets when the ball isn't swinging.

Record imports by state energy firms and higher Chinese production have pushed down domestic wholesale LNG prices in north China. Last month marked the first time since mid-2016 that imports grew slower than exports.


Dunedin pitch was especially hard for batsmen from both sides. "Have to be smart again in Hamilton", said Williamson.

The hosts were unable to build on a promising position as their search for quick runs failed, the Black Caps losing 48-7 to finish their innings.

Hasan Ali and Rumman Raees picked up three wickets each while Shadab Khan picked up two wickets as New Zealand lost seven wickets for 62 in the last 10 overs after being comfortably placed for 195/3 at the end of 40 overs.

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.

New Zealand has now consistently been improving its winning percentage in ODIs against Pakistan, which at the moment stands at 45.40 percent. Ali, confidently expecting a bludgeoning boundary once the ball left his bat had to do a double take to realise Williamson had actually clung on to the ball, departed shaking his head in disbelief.
