Pakistan to bat first against New Zealand in 2nd ODI

Pakistan to bat first against New Zealand in 2nd ODI

Dougherty could barely concentrate on the rest of the game as he was inundated with messages from friends who had seen his triumphant catch on TV.

(Web Desk) - The Pakistani captain Sarfraz Ahmed blamed the batting top order for failing to perform in all three one-day internationals (ODIs) against New Zealand during the away tour.

Chasing 258, Pakistan got rolled for 74, their equal third lowest score of all time in one day worldwide cricket.

With Pakistan's top order decimated following a fiery spell from Kiwi paceman Trent Boult, the Men in Green were facing the ignominy of recording the lowest ever one-day worldwide score as they teetered on a scarcely believable 32-7.

Before long, it was 6-16 and the lowest-ever total - Zimbabwe's 35 against Sri Lanka in 2004 - suddenly looked under threat.

Pakistan batsmen struggled to find a ground before crumbling to the total of 74.

New Zealand quick Boult dismissed openers Azhar Ali and Fakhar Zaman.

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for areas west of Interstate 65 in Middle Tennessee as well as locations in southern Kentucky. The temperatures the past few days have been a nice reprieve from the cold, but it has lead to rapid snow melt.

Williamson and Taylor kept Pakistan on the back foot as they forged a 74-run stand, during which Williamson surpassed his fifty.

Munro only faced three balls from Faheem Ashraf in the second over - a six, two and caught behind, and New Zealand were 15 for one after 10 balls.

Pakistan's woes continued as Babar Azam was run out by Mitchell Santner for eight runs, while Shoaib Malik was sent packing by Lockie Ferguson and Shadab was cleaned up by Munro.

The hosts were unable to build on a promising position as their search for quick runs failed, the Black Caps losing 48-7 to finish their innings.

He says they're "built strongly as a team, and have come a long way". Plum lbw. Thought about reviewing for a second but ends up walking.

Taylor was able to score more freely than Williamson, perhaps because the conditions favored the straight-bat shots which are his forte, and reached his 40th ODI half-century from 49 balls.

"The batting performance was very disappointing and it was a very tough loss", Sarfraz expressed.
