Over 31 Pakistan 166/6/No

KANE WILLIAMSON has been named the Man Of The Match for his superlative century. It has helped break Pakistan's winning streak of 9 successive ODI wins, from the first match loss to India in the Champions Trophy in 2017. The next stop is now Nelson, where the Kiwis will aim to double the series lead while the visitors will look to do better in all departments. Do join us for that game on Tuesday, 9th January, 2018 at 1100 LOCAL (2200 GMT, previous night) for all the action from the second ODI. Till then, you can catch all the action from the first SA-Ind Test and the final Ashes Test. ADIOS! Take Care!
One might not be totally wrong if it is said that the chase was perhaps over in the first 16 overs itself when Pakistan had lost half their side. Fakhar Zaman was the only batsman who showed some resilience while Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf seemed to indicate that the batting depth of the team is pretty deep. But in short, a disappointing performance with the bat.
Yet another dominating win for New Zealand then. They did not have much problems with the bat and though Pakistan might argue that things could have been different had Kane Williamson's catch been taken, the hosts always looked in control. The top 3 batted well and then Nicholls came down the order for a late burst. Pakistan were disappointing with the ball and largely struggled with the wind. Hasan Ali though, still picked up 3 scalps.
That is it. PLAY HAS BEEN CALLED OFF. New Zealand have been declared winners by 61 runs (DLS method). Not to suggest that Pakistan would have won this had the game gone the distance but the fightback shown by Fakhar Zaman, Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf was heartening. They would have loved to take the game into the final 10 overs.
Noooooooooooooooo! The rain is back and so are the covers. Keep waiting...
Hurrah! The players are back on the field! That was hardly a delay, wasn't it? No overs lost, so Pakistan still have the entire quota of overs to bat....
1735 LOCAL - And off they go... the umpires have been trying to delay the inevitable for as long as possible but the rain has just got very heavy for play to continue. Not too many covers on at the moment, just the single one. It does look very heavy, the rain that is. Stay tuned for updates. Hopefully, we have a resumption...

Tim Southee to F Ashraf, Around middle and off, watchfully defended.

The rain seems to be getting heavier.
29.6
M Santner to F Ashraf, That is a better single. Pushed to point.
29.5
M Santner to F Ashraf, On middle and leg, Faheem wants to push and run to the leg side but Zaman sends him back.
29.4
M Santner to F Ashraf, SIX! High and handsome! Tossed up outside off and this time Ashraf does not block. Lunges and lofts this straight back over the bowler and clears long off!
29.3
M Santner to F Ashraf, The arm ball, slides this one through, with the angle, FA looks to defend but the ball whizzes past the outside edge.
29.2
M Santner to F Ashraf, Full again, a bit flatter and quicker this time, Faheem gets across and blocks.
29.1
M Santner to F Ashraf, Full and on middle, pushed to the off side.
29.1
M Santner to F Ashraf, WIDE. Full and outside leg, Ashraf misses his flick.

T Boult to F Zaman, Wide.
28.5
T Boult to F Ashraf, Now the short ball is back and Faheem pulls it behind square leg for a single.
28.4
T Boult to F Ashraf, FOUR! GORGEOUS! This guy can definitely bat. Full on middle, expected overcompensation for the previous delivery and Ashraf is ready for it. Boy, does he think like a batsman... pushes this down the ground, past the bowler, through mid on and gets consecutive boundaries against his name.
28.3
T Boult to F Ashraf, FOUR! A short ball, Ashraf pulls this through mid-wicket and gets another boundary!
28.2
T Boult to F Zaman, Very full, on middle, worked through square leg for a single.
28.1
T Boult to F Zaman, FOUR! Poor ball. Third man and point are inside the circle and Boult drops it short and wide outside off. Zaman cuts it between short third man and backward point for a boundary. Moves to 81 from 84 balls with his 5th boundary. He deserves that 100.

T Boult to F Ashraf, No run.
FAHEEM ASHRAF walks in next, at number 8, replacing Shadab. His profile suggests that he can bat a bit...
26.5
T Boult to S Khan, OUT! Gone this time. Trent Boult has struck. A purposeful short ball at the head of the batsman, Shadab instinctively goes for the pull but gets a top edge. The ball goes up in the air but has not gone far. Tom Latham runs back a few yards and takes it comfortably. A decent 78-run stand ends. Some respectability to the Pakistan total.
26.4
T Boult to F Zaman, Full and wide outside off, squeezed uppishly past cover for one.
26.3
T Boult to S Khan, Another pull shot, uppish, but does not carry to the man at deep mid-wicket. A run results.
26.2
T Boult to F Zaman, A short ball on middle, pulled ferociously but straight to deep mid-wicket for just a single.
26.1
T Boult to F Zaman, Full and outside off, pushed straight to cover.
