Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat against New Zealand in the second one-day cricket global at Saxton Oval on Tuesday. 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.

The biggest partnership of Pakistan's innings was for the eighth wicket as Shadab and Hasan put on 70. They won by eight wickets with seven balls to spare via the Duckworth-Lewis Method.

Her phone was found inside the auto and her purse, which had an iPad, computer and credit cards, were found at a nearby business. The man had followed Roland home, the roommate said, but sped off as Roland got out of her auto .
Taylor joined in at the other end, picking runs off Rumman Raees in the next over, and with the frequency of boundaries as high as it was, the match soon slipped away from Pakistan. The pair was also involved in an 104-run unbeaten stand for the third wicket as New Zealand reached the target with 7 balls remaining. Lockie Ferguson (3/39) was the standout among the Kiwi bowlers.
Earlier, ODI bests from Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan salvaged what shaped as a feeble Pakistan innings. As for Boult and Santner, they chipped in with one wicket each. But just as the momentum was shifting, Malik danced down the wicket and hit one straight to long-on. We lost too many wickets in the first ten overs. Malik had been in good touch during the last ODI assignment against Sri Lanka in UAE, but doesn't boast of a good record in New Zealand.
The innings looked to be petering out well under 200, and it took a whirlwind partnership between Shadab and No. 9 Hasan to restore some competitiveness to the contest.
