'Death bowling' concerns for unbeaten New Zealand

'Death bowling' concerns for unbeaten New Zealand

Fortunately, Pakistan avoided that humiliation as they stumbled on to a measly score of 74 but their capitulation and 183-run defeat see them 3-0 down in a forgettable series for the visitors.

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson has called on his bowlers to be more accurate in the final overs as they look to take an unbeatable lead over Pakistan in the third one-day global in Dunedin.

New Zealand has now consistently been improving its winning percentage in ODIs against Pakistan, which at the moment stands at 45.40 percent.

The Kiwis total was set up by captain Kane Williamson (73) and veteran Ross Taylor (52), who provided a solid foundation for the innings. New Zealand, however, have the experience of playing here and the records favour them as well.

Any fan at a New Zealand limited overs match this summer who catches a six one-handed while wearing a promotional T-shirt is rewarded with £26,400 (NZ$50,000) in prize money. Incidentally, Tent Boult bagged the man of the match award for delivering an impressive performance of 5-17.

Thursday forecast: chances for rain, high 63; cold weather returning this weekend
MONDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy skies and snow flurries will be possible, with an overnight low temperature of 12 degrees. And this round of winter precipitation may affect more of the state, from north Alabama into parts of south Alabama.

Boult was easily the most successful bowler with five wickets, while Munro and Ferguson claimed two wickets each.

Trent Boult ripped through Pakistan's top order, reducing them to 2 for 3 in the fourth over of the chase.

Hasan and Raees picked up three wickets apiece, while Shadab snapped up two and Ashraf chipped in with one.

Pakistan batsmen struggled to find a ground before crumbling to the total of 74. They looked alright until the score was 158/3. But I suppose the biggest learning curve as a fast bowler is making the change and being able to get wickets when the ball isn't swinging.
