New Zealand take series, Sarfraz Ahmed slams 'batting flop'

  • Kane Williamson

They have maintained a 3-0 lead in this series with this win.

Pakistan: Azhar Ali, Imam ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed (capt), Faheem Ashraf, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali, Rumman Raees.

Pakistan were bowled out for a record-low total in their ODI clash with New Zealand, and this embarrassing mishap summed it up perfectly.

Don't be surprised if Pakistan make a bunch of changes to their playing XI for Tuesday's fourth ODI against New Zealand.

It was Pakistan's lowest total against New Zealand and the hosts' winning margin eclipsed the previous best of 138 runs when the two sides met in 2001 in Christchurch.

Williamson never looked particularly fluent but reached 73 off 101 deliveries while Taylor made 52 off 64 deliveries.

Dropbox confidentially files for IPO
The joke surrounding Dropbox for years was that the company was set to go public in the fourth quarter of that year - every year. Dropbox isn't confirming the filing of the IPO paperwork, which doesn't require the company to go public by any certain date.

Williamson put on 69 with Martin Guptill (45) for the second wicket and 74 with Taylor for the third to lift New Zealand to 158-3 before he was out in the 34th over.

Pakistan were all out for 74 in the 28th over.

Trent Boult (5-17) ripped through the tourists, who were 32-8 at one stage and in danger of breaking the mark of 35 for the lowest ODI score, set by Zimbabwe against Sri Lanka in 2004.

Pakistan suffered a humiliating loss when the scoreboard showed they lost with a margin of massive 183 runs!

"That´s the focus. The focus is trying to win each game".

Williamson was ecstatic to have already wrapped up the series, and said: "Fantastic performance all around, a tough surface to get in on. Collective effort. Wanted to get the series done, knew we had to fight hard with only 250 on the board". The last battle took place at Nelson on January 9 was the 100th between the two Teams, and it was won by New Zealand, registering its eighth consecutive win over Pakistan in ODIs.
