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 global at Saxton Oval, Nelson on Tuesday.
New Zealand took a 2-0 lead in their one-day worldwide series against Pakistan after an eight-wicket win in a rain-affected clash in Nelson on Tuesday.
After rains played the spoilsport and delayed the play for more than two hours, the target was revised to 151 off 25 overs.
Veteran duo of Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik tried to steady the ship by adding 45 runs for the fourth wicket, but once the latter one departed in the 27 over, the visitors once again started to lose their way and were reduced to 141-7 in the 37 over. 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 were without injured Fakhar Zaman, who scored 82 not out in the first match at the Basin Reserve, and the talented opener's absence was certainly felt early on as Fakhar's replacement, Imam ul-Haq, was caught for two, while fellow opener Azhar Ali soon followed his team-mate when he was dismissed for six.
The home side had earlier won the opening ODI in Wellington by 61 runs and will now face the Pakistanis on Saturday at Dunedin. Babar Azam couldn't have offered an easier catch to first-slip, helping Lockie Ferguson open his account.
Earlier, Mohammad Hafeez and tailenders Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan made half-centuries as Pakistan struggled to 246-9, batting first after winning the toss. As for Boult and Santner, they chipped in with one wicket each.
They were particularly belligerent after the rain-break - Guptill picked Hasan Ali for consecutive sixes in the 16th over. The sixes were hit at will for Guptill - five of them in total - while Ross Taylor provided suitable support. Our batting didn't do well and we needed the lower order to perform. "I thought for the first half the guys were brilliant with the ball and then Pakistan showed some real resistance at the end and put some partnerships together to get what could have been a tricky little total on that surface". The Black Caps have won nine games across all formats.
Guptill was adjudged "Man of the Match" for his stellar performance with the bat.
