New Zealand held to 257 in 3rd ODI vs

The Duckworth-Lewis-Stern calculation left the Black Caps chasing an adjusted total of 151 from 25 overs and the home side overhauled the target with more than an over to spare and eight wickets in hand.

They then crawled past their own previous lowest one-day score, the 43 they scored in 1993 against the West Indies in Cape Town.

Chasing 258, Pakistan got rolled for 74, their equal third lowest score of all time in one day global cricket.

Pakistan rocketed from 141 for seven in the 37th over to make 246 for nine in game two, repeating a pattern that has been all too common in recent seasons where New Zealand have let the score get away on them after a solid start.

Not everybody in the Pakistan batting line-up is struggling with the extra bounce the New Zealand pitches have provided.

Trent Boult did the initial damage, reducing Pakistan to 3/2 inside four overs. Azhar Ali was the first to fall. The best was his 45-run stand with Shoaib Malik (27) for the fourth wicket and when he was out for 60 Pakistan were in trouble at 127-6.

Speedster Lockie Ferguson was also a major contributor with 3-39 from 10 overs.

Guptill and Kane Williamson the added 46 for the second wicket before the skipper was caught by Shadab Khan at the backward point off Faheem Ashraf.

Hasan Ali (1) fell to a good diving catch by Williamson at mid-wicket before Boult was brought back to clean up Mohammad Amir (bowled for 14) and top-scorer Rumman Raees (bowled for 16).
