  • Pakistan eyeing bounce back preps for 2nd ODI against New Zealand

Martin Guptill made 86 in an unbroken 104-run partnership with Ross Taylor which carried New Zealand to an eight-wicket win over Pakistan on Tuesday in the rain-affected second one-day worldwide.

Earlier, it was Pakistan, who won the toss and chose to bat first but they lost their openers Azhar Ali (6) and Imam-ul-Haq (2) early.

New Zealand named the same lineup that won the first match of the five-match series by 61 runs under the Duckworth-Lewis system.

It added that Egypt's positions are conveyed by the President, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and in official state statements. The other calls were with Mofid Fawzy, who denied speaking to el-Kholi, and with Egyptian singer and actress Youssra.

After a two-hour wait in the pavilion as rain fell throughout the afternoon at Saxton Oval in Nelson, Guptill and Taylor were eventually given the green light to return to the crease, requiring 87 runs in 11 overs for victory. Fine weather is forecast.

In addition, a drop catch of New Zealand's Captain Kane Williamson by his Counterpart behind the wicket Sarfraz Ahmed also proved costly for Pakistan as the former eventually ended his innings for 115.

Having restricted oppositions to manageable scores all through their recent golden run, Pakistan were let down by their bowlers in Wellington. The fearsome bowling attack will have to come to the party, and soon, for Pakistan to counter an in-form New Zealand batting.

Earlier, ODI bests from Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan salvaged what shaped as a feeble Pakistan innings. But Fakhar Zaman continued his excellent form - he generated in Tour Match against New Zealand XI - and with the help of Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf took Pakistan's score to 166 for 6 in 30.1 overs before the rain's interruption forced the umpires to abandon the game. However, some splendid fifties by Shadab Khan and Hasan Ali rescued them as they managed to post a total of 246/9 on the board. Babar Azam couldn't have offered an easier catch to first-slip, helping Lockie Ferguson open his account.

However, Hasan and Shadab's partnership allowed them to set a competitive total.

Sarfraz Ahmed was stumped on three when he went down the wicket to Astle, and Hafeez lost his wicket dancing down the pitch to Mitchell Santner. Now, the ODI series is led by New Zealand by 2 - 0.
