Rain can't stop Black Caps winning again

TFG FANTASY XI

Pakistan cricket team cannot play any home tournament due to the political disaster and so, they used to take UAE venue as their home ground. So, team Pakistan is now visiting there and they are scheduled to play a ODI and a T20I tournament against the local team New Zealand.

Having trounced Windies in Tests, ODIs and T20s, the Black Caps kicked off their five-match ODI series against Pakistan with a rain-affected victory in Wellington over the weekend.

Martin Guptill in action during the Second One-Day against Pakistan, Nelson 2018. "I thought for the first half the guys were brilliant with the ball and then Pakistan showed some real resistance at the end and put some partnerships together to get what could have been a tricky little total on that surface".

At 64-2, New Zealand had a good chance of overhauling the Pakistan total but they had lost key batsman Colin Munro for a duck to the third ball of the innings and captain Kane Williamson for 19. The pair was also involved in an 104-run unbeaten stand for the third wicket as New Zealand reached the target with 7 balls remaining. They did it in 23.5 overs by losing two wickets.

The rain delay worked in favor of the batting team which, with eight wickets in hand, was always well-equipped for a shortened run chase. Williamson and Guptill restored some order, before a superb diving catch at point from Shadab left New Zealand at 47 for 2.

For the second time this series, rain intervened before the match was finished with New Zealand in front. Astle went for 21 runs in an over, while Boult bowled two full tosses around waist height - only one of which was called - as the runs began to flow freely.

Hafeez tried to play a steadying role with his 33rd half-century in ODIs but Pakistan weren't able to build partnerships at the top of the order.

Mohammad Hafeez's steady 60 off 71 had anchored the Pakistan innings, but he disappeared early in the 32nd over and the visitors looked in all sorts of trouble at 127-6. Rest players did not make any significant score. Bowlers were quite impressive in that day.

New Zealand didn't get off to the best of starts though, as Colin Munro, the in-form big-hitter, was caught early dismissed by Mohammed Amir. Later, Guptill and Taylor finished the job very well.

Play resumed at 6.40pm at Saxton Oval, with the match reduced to 25 overs and the Black Caps chasing a new target of 151 under Duckworth Lewis calculations.
