Williamson wants Kiwis bowling improvement

Ben Stokes bats

Pakistan were dismissed for their third lowest ODI total by New Zealand in Dunedin but it was a local builder in the crowd that stole the show.

Earlier in the day, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and chose to bat on a slow pitch.

However, their 74 is the lowest total for a visiting side in ODIs in New Zealand.

Yesterday, in Dunedin, they came perilously close to posting the lowest ODI score when they reeled at 32 for 8 in a listless batting performance.

With Pakistan's top order decimated following a fiery spell from Kiwi paceman Trent Boult, the Men in Green were facing the ignominy of recording the lowest ever one-day global score as they teetered on a scarcely believable 32-7. New Zealand, however, have the experience of playing here and the records favour them as well.

In a clean-sweep by New Zealand's aggressive bowling, Pakistan lost its chance to claim the ongoing ODI series due to their poor batting order.

USA ambassador to Panama says he can no longer serve under Trump
"If the ambassador feels that he can no longer serve... then he has made the right decision for himself and we respect that". US officials said dozens of email messages were flying around the State Department about Feeley's decision to leave.

Saturday's win sealed the five-match series with two games to play but Boult isn't expecting the home side to ring the changes.

Trent Boult ripped through Pakistan's top order, reducing them to 2 for 3 in the fourth over of the chase. Matt Henry's 5 for 30, in Abu Dhabi in 2014-15, was the previous best.

Boult was awarded man of the match honours, finishing the innings with 5/17 off 7.2 overs.

Lockie Ferguson, centre, took two wickets in New Zealand's romp.

Pakistan batsmen struggled to find a ground before crumbling to the total of 74.

"It was a great sign for them but it's important we learn from that as well and look to do that a little bit better". Their collective average of 17.10 is the second worst in any bilateral series with a minimum of 20 innings.
