BALL BY BALL
47.2 - L Ferguson to S Afridi
Lockie Ferguson to Shaheen Afridi. Half volley, off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to. Ferguson wraps it up! Full and straight and smashes into the stumps. A well deserved victory for New Zealand who on the whole were the better side. The one time Shadab Khan did do them some damage the lower order rallied to add valuable runs to New Zealand's total. Before that Taylor and Latham put on their third consecutive 100 stand in ODIs, a productive partnership for New Zealand. Pakistan never fully recovered from Trent Boult's early hat-trick when their score was just eight. So an excellent performance from the Blackcaps who get back to winning ways. That's all from Abu Dhabi tonight, join us again here on Friday for round two of this contest.
47.1 - L Ferguson to H Ali
Lockie Ferguson to Hasan Ali. Leg cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Boult. Doesn't quite get enough of it to clear the ropes! Trent Boult takes the catch, his final step leaving him close but just inside the boundary. It looks like Pakistan will also be falling short of this total.

46.6 - T Southee to S Afridi
Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Taylor.
46.5 - T Southee to I Wasim
Tim Southee to Imad Wasim. Full toss, middle stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, in the air uncontrolled to short third man, by de Grandhomme. And now he's out! Quite unlucky as he executed the shot fairly well, but there were two men on the edge of the ring and de Grandhomme took a good one-handed catch diving to his right.
46.4 - T Southee to H Ali
Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Boult.
46.3 - T Southee to I Wasim
Full toss, middle stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Boult. That's 50 for Imad Wasim, but in the grand scheme of things at the moment it's not looking like it will be enough.
46.2 - T Southee to I Wasim
Half volley, to leg down the track driving, well timed to long on for 2 runs, fielded by Boult.
46.1 - T Southee to H Ali
