Pakistan to break New Zealand jinx says Sarfraz

Pakistan to break New Zealand jinx says Sarfraz

New Zealand paceman Trent Boult claimed a hat-trick to help lead his side to a 47-run win over Pakistan in the first one-day global in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

"I think the new ball is a key part of the game and we know what early wickets can do to chasing totals".

Hafeez finished with 0-23 from his six overs, while Taylor top-scored for the Black Caps with 80, before a hat-trick from Trent Boult led the visitors to victory.

Boult joined Danny Morrison and Shane Bond in the history books of New Zealand as he absolutely shut out the Pakistan top order to inflict their first loss in nine matches.

The 29-year-old pace man had only arrived in the United Arab Emirates three days earlier, returning from paternity leave, but clean bowled Fakhar Zaman for one before Babar Azam was caught by Ross Taylor at wide slip and trapping Mohammad Hafeez leg before - both without scoring.

"Just make him play, I guess", Boult said when asked how he approached the hat-trick delivery.

That helped New Zealand add 50 runs in the last five overs.

Taylor had Latham in good support as New Zealand looked set for a big total at 199-3 after 40 overs before Shadab took three wickets in the 42nd over.

Earlier, after winning the toss and electing to bat, New Zealand's George Worker and Colin Munro didn't last long, the former edging tamely to Sarfraz Ahmed off Shaheen Afridi (4/46) before the teenage sensation removed his fellow opener lbw.

Half-centuries from Ross Taylor and Tom Latham propelled the visiting team's score.

Shadab dismissed Kane Williamson for 27 before Taylor and Latham came together.

Shadab broke the century stand by having Latham and Henry Nicholls leg before wicket off consecutive balls and one ball later Colin de Grandhomme was caught in the slip.

The senior New Zealand batsman gesticulated with a bent arm during Hafeez's first over, in an apparent reference to the all-rounder's questionable action.

"If you look at our losses majority were in New Zealand where conditions were different and we lost due to top order failure where we need to improve", said Sarfraz.

That left Pakistan 8-3 in their chase of 267 but they rallied, with Sarfraz Ahmed (64) and Imad Wasim (50) putting on 103 for the seventh wicket to give them a chance of victory.

The remaining matches are in Abu Dhabi on Friday and in Dubai on Sunday.
