Pakistan vs New Zealand Second ODI Live Streaming

The New Zealand cricketers have overcome a two hour rain interuption to beat Pakistan in the second one day worldwide in Nelson.

New Zealand took a 2-0 lead in their one-day global series against Pakistan after an eight-wicket win in a rain-affected clash in Nelson on Tuesday.

On the other side, Guptill and Munro started to bat for New Zealand where in 1 run Munro was gone and in 47 runs captain Williamson was gone as well.

Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik kept New Zealand at bay temporarily with a 45-run partnership before Malik was caught by Southee at long-on off the bowling of Todd Astle for 27. 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.

Earlier, it was Pakistan, who won the toss and chose to bat first but they lost their openers Azhar Ali (6) and Imam-ul-Haq (2) early.

Hafeez, 40 away from completing 6000 ODI runs, did make sufficient to raise Pakistan's hopes of a comeback but he couldn't convert his half-century into something more match-defining. To secure the ODI series New Zealand need to manage just one victory against Pakistan and they have still three matches in hand.

Their unbeaten third-wicket stand was worth 104 runs.

The 16, 17 and 18th over of New Zealand's chase produced a total of 41 runs and the equation was brought down to a very manageable 42 required off as many deliveries.

It was only contributions from Mohammad Hafeez (60), Shadab (52) and Hasan Ali (51) that played a vital role to help Pakistan recover and post 246 for nine in the 50 overs.

Earlier in the day, Pakistan who elected to bat first were reduced to 141/7. Tim Southee got the wicket in nearly identical fashion to the first ODI, Azhar falling over to off stump and missing a straight one that thudded into his pads.

However, Hasan and Shadab's partnership allowed them to set a competitive total. Hasan took charge in their stand, striking four boundaries and four sixes, beginning his assault with successive sixes off Mitchell Santner.

Although every New Zealand bowler except Munro took at least one wicket, Ferguson was clear standout, the Black Caps' quick ending up with the decent figures of 3-39.
