The Black Caps have extended their winning streak to nine games across all formats after Martin Guptill and Ross Taylor guided them past a revised total of 151, in a rain-disrupted second one-day global against Pakistan.

When the rain set in, New Zealand were 64 for two after 14 overs in reply to Pakistan's 246 for nine.

When they were able to return to the field their new target under the Duckworth Lewis scoring system had been changed to 151 runs off 25 overs.

That gave Pakistan a total to defend and their hopes were raised when Munro was out in the frist over and Williamson (19) fell to a brilliant catch by Shadab off Faheem Ashraf.

Mohammad Hafeez scored highest 60 runs for Pakistan. Five balls later, Amir convinced skipper Sarfraz Ahmed to review a lbw call turned down against Kane Williamson when he hadn't even opened his account.

Pakistan, missing form opener Fakhar Zaman who was rested with a bruised right thigh, felt the pressure.


The third ODI in the five-match series is on Saturday in Dunedin. They ended up winning comfortably by eight wickets with seven balls to spare. The best was his 45-run stand with Shoaib Malik (27) for the fourth wicket and when he was out for 60 Pakistan were in trouble at 127-6.

The left-arm spinner picked the move and sent down a short, wide delivery which Hafeez hit to Martin Guptill at short cover. Lockie Ferguson (3/39) was the standout among the Kiwi bowlers.

Fakhar Zaman lost for the first time in ODIs, having made his debut at the start of Pakistan's stretch of victories, but did impress with an unbeaten 82 at the top of the order in Wellington.


Earlier, a spirited fightback from Hasan and Shadab helped Pakistan to a respectable 246 for 9 despite being reduced to 141 for 7 at one stage.

Meanwhile, Trent Boult and Mitchell Santner took a wicket each.

Sarfraz was less than impressed with his side's performance, and said: "Very disappointing performance".


He spent the weather break on the physio's table after his back tightened up early in the Black Caps' chase. Astle came in the firing line in the 43rd over that went for 21 runs, as Hasan struck his third six and a couple of fours to bring up the fifty of his partnership with Shadab.
