New Zealand won the toss and opted to bat first.

But even that was too much for Pakistan, who could not recover from a top-order slide induced by Boult (5/17), dismissing Azhar Ali, Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Hafeez in his first two overs, to reduce Pakistan to 2/3 in 4 overs.

Pakistan has been comprehensively embarrassed by New Zealand in today's ODI in Dunedin. Pakistan themselves were eight down for 25 against West Indies in Cape Town in 1992-93, which is the lowest score by any team at eight down.

Skipper Kane Williamson top-scored for the hosts with 73 runs off 101 balls while Ross Taylor finished with a well-paced 52 off 64.

The visiting Pakistan has a very little margin of error, it can afford to make; otherwise, the five-match ODI series will easily slip away to New Zealand which is already leading it by 2-0.

In a letter, Feeley said his disagreement with the administration of President Donald Trump is the reason for his departure. Feeley's resignation puts an end to a long career at the State Department.

"Halfway break we knew, still 250 on the board, we knew it was going to be tough. The focus is the next game".

Despite NZ losing 7-48 to close their innings, the total looked a competitive one on the Dunedin wicket.

Taylor fell in that manner to Shadab, beaten by a short ball which failed to bounce, beat his shot and hit him in front of middle stump. The special thing is that the audience has to catch a ball during this time.

Williamson, who came to the crease on Munro's departure, took a long time to settle and find the pace of the pitch, but applied himself to go on to a half-century.

The score is also the second lowest ever made against New Zealand. Ali, confidently expecting a bludgeoning boundary once the ball left his bat had to do a double take to realise Williamson had actually clung on to the ball, departed shaking his head in disbelief.
