Toe injury rules Junaid Khan out of New Zealand ODIs

A knock of 86 off 120 deliveries at a point when no batsmen could face the charging Pakistani pacers, in their own backyard, gives a glimpse of the level of potency and experience that dwells within Ross Taylor.

Full-back Damian McKenzie finished a lovely move in the 39th minute to start the New Zealand comeback, before Barrett added the extras and finished the first half with a penalty. Kane Williamson (1) was run-out and with Goerge Worker (28) and Tom Latham (1) departing in quick succession, the onus was once again on Ross Taylor to steady the ship. At the end of 10 overs, New Zealand had scored 55 for 2.

While a partnership between Taylor and Nicholls added 75 runs, it came off 129 balls, and when Nicholls departed, Taylor struggled to find the strike, or a partner capable of significantly boosting the run rate.

Fakhar timed the ball exquisitely, reaching his half-century by cutting Sodhi for four and setting about Boult, who summed up his side's effort in the field with a wild throw at the stumps that went for four overthrows. Afridi, victor of the Man of the Match award, bowled aggressively, in all of his three spells and was rewarded with 4 for 38.

Fast bowler Lockie Ferguson, who took three wickets, says they didn't put enough runs on the board.

Larsen said he had impressed the selectors since his return from Australia, and would complement the New Zealand test bowling stocks. Ferguson dismissed Zaman for 88. They limped to 209/9 in their fifty overs, a target that seemed a breeze for Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam.

Considering it was a must-win feud for either nation, with Kiwi enjoying a clear-cut lead by a margin of 1-0, it would have been expected from the visiting captain to stay till the end and probably notch a mega-innings by the end of the contest.
