'Death bowling' concerns for unbeaten New Zealand

Trent Boult Destroys Pakistan As New Zealand Clinch ODI Series Boult rocked Pakistan with three wickets in five balls

However, they couldn't get near their previous lowest score against New Zealand, which was 116 at Dambulla, Sri Lanka, during a tri-nations series in 2003.

Martin Guptill struck an unbeaten 86 to power New Zealand to an eight-wicket victory via Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method over Pakistan in the second one day worldwide at Saxton Oval, Nelson on Tuesday.

Black Caps bowler Trent Boult celebrates the caught behind wicket of Pakistan batsman Mohammad Hafeez in Dunedin on Saturday.

He had Azhar and Hafeez brilliantly caught by Taylor at first slip and bowled Fakhar who chopped a wide delivery onto his stumps.

NZ were 3/209 at one stage before losing 7/48 on their way to 257 all out, with captain Kane Williamson's innings of 73 off 101 the highest of the match.

Babar Azam (8) was unlucky when he tried to slide his bat completing a second run, but the bat dug into the ground short of the crease and he was run out.

Real ease into Copa del Rey quarters
Lucas Vazquez sent Zinedine Zidane's charges ahead in the 10th minute with a header following a good cross from Daniel Carvajal. The players think the same, we are going to work harder than ever, in every sense.

Williamson made an inspired decision to call on part-time medium pacer Colin Munro, who reveled in conditions in which the ball often held up on the surface.

But then the squad struggled while Pakistani bowlers, Rumman Raees, Hasan Ali, and Shadab Khan significantly improved their performance from past two ODIs to restrict Kiwis at 257. He bowled Shadab Khan to leave Pakistan 16-6 and in desperate straits.

Tim Southee (2-57) and Trent Boult (1-54) both claimed early wickets to give the bowling side the upper hand.

Green Shirts collapsed inexplicably in the final match with one of the lowest total ever scores in an ODI matches.

New Zealand's winning margin also eclipsed their previous biggest victory over Pakistan, which had been by 138 runs in 2001 in Christchurch. At one point in the match, Pakistan were reeling at 17/7.

Raees (3-51) and Hasan Ali (3-59) did most of the damage for Pakistan, but their good work was quickly undone by bad batting and Boult's fine spell.
