Wickets tumbled as New Zealand looked to accelerate but Styris, Taylor and McGlashan tore apart Pakistan’s bowling to end with 185/7 with COW of 70%. After a brisk start Pakistan lost Afridi early but were at a steady 60/1 after 7 overs with COW of 33% before 3 quick wickets saw them slip to 76/4 after 10 with COW of 26%. Nathan McCullum picked up 4 wickets and Southee nearly had another hat trick and NZ coasted home by 39 runs as Pakistan ended at 146/9.
