26.5 W Boult to Shadab Khan

26.5 W Boult to Shadab Khan, OUT, finally they have broken the stand. A 78-run one. And it's the short ball that does it. Shadab takes it on and tries to pull. Considerable bounce on this delivery, and just enough to take the top-edge as Latham pouches it

, play 00:41
49.5 W Mohammad Amir to Santner, OUT

49.5 W Mohammad Amir to Santner, OUT, Santner hits this pull in the direction of the breeze but he has holed out to cow corner. Gets on top of the bounce nicely and even makes pretty good connection. But probably not as well-middled we he would have liked

, play 00:46
15.4 W Astle to Sarfraz Ahmed, OUT

15.4 W Astle to Sarfraz Ahmed, OUT, Sarfraz has been sent back. He stays put for just a moment and it makes you wonder if it's another dodgy. But tell you what. That doesn't seem so bad. Seems plumb.

8.4 W Southee to Shoaib Malik, OUT

8.4 W Southee to Shoaib Malik, OUT, edged and gone. Cross-seamer, angled in at fourth-stump channel and straightens, forces Malik to poke at it and finds the edge that's snaffled by the keeper

, play 00:43
3.5 W Boult to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT

3.5 W Boult to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, in the air and taken. Loose shot from Hafeez. No control whatsoever. That's a terrible shot with a boundary rider at backward square leg. Hooks a short ball that gets big on him and Southee runs to snaffle it

, play 00:56
0.5 W Southee to Babar Azam, OUT

0.5 W Southee to Babar Azam, OUT, another appeal and given. Azam falls for a two-ball duck, and there is no review available because Azhar used it up. FInally gets that shape into the batsman, but this one seems to be a harsh call.

, play 02:08
0.4 W Southee to Azhar Ali, OUT

0.4 W Southee to Azhar Ali, OUT, looks mighty close and given. That looked plumb. Azhar takes a review but I highly doubt this will help Pakistan.This will come down to ball-tracking. On-field call remains. Pakistan lose their review

, play 00:43
48.1 W Hasan Ali to Nicholls, OUT

48.1 W Hasan Ali to Nicholls, OUT, gets around for a scoop but Hasan smartly follows him. Fires a low full toss around his off-stump and Nicholls skews it off the splice to the keeper. Can't get any distance on that whatsoever

, play 00:45
47.2 W Rumman Raees to Williamson, OUT

47.2 W Rumman Raees to Williamson, OUT, goes for a big heave and makes no good connection. This is a back-of-the-hand slower ball and Williamson as a result skews it off the bottom of the bat to be caught at extra cover where Hasan Ali snaffles it

, play 00:46
44.2 4 Hasan Ali to Williamson, FOUR, there's the hundred

44.2 4 Hasan Ali to Williamson, FOUR, there's the hundred. Williamson completes a finely-crafted century. This was an absolutely classy innings. Soaks in a rich applause from the Wellington faithful

WATCH - Three players hurt in one delivery

Henry Nicholls collided with Mohammad Amir mid-pitch, while Fakhar Zaman twisted his foot after landing on the ball, all in the space of a single ball

, play 00:40
33.6 W Faheem Ashraf to Latham, OUT

33.6 W Faheem Ashraf to Latham, OUT, soft! Lobbed to midwicket for the simplest of catches. The extra ball gets the wicket. Good length on middle stump and Latham tried to work this towards the leg side, leading edge taken by Babar

, play 00:34
32.3 W Hasan Ali to Taylor, OUT

32.3 W Hasan Ali to Taylor, OUT, sharp nip off the surface! Good length outside off but angling into the right hander, moves sharply into Taylor's body and he's beaten for pace. Off stump is dislodged and Taylor has to make his way back

, play 00:40
12.3 W Hasan Ali to Munro, OUT

12.3 W Hasan Ali to Munro, OUT, good length outside off and Munro goes poking at it. Tried to force this through the off side, but it's too close to his body, takes the outside edge and safely taken by the keeper. Hasan Ali is pumped!

, play 00:38
26.3 W Fakhar Zaman to Guptill, OUT

26.3 W Fakhar Zaman to Guptill, OUT, oh, dear! What a tame dismissal! He had no business getting out to that one. It was a nothing wide delivery and shortish as well. Guptill flashes outside off but simply hits it straight into the hands of backward point

, play 00:40
21.5 1 Faheem Ashraf to Williamson, 1 run, dropped

21.5 1 Faheem Ashraf to Williamson, 1 run, dropped. Sarfraz with a decent effort but can't latch on.Williamson sticks the bat outside off to one that straightens down the fifth-stump channel. Sticks the right glove out but it doesn't stick on

  • Williamson makes ton as New Zealand go 1-0 up in the rain

    A masterful hundred from Kane Williamson and world-class new ball bowling by Tim Southee and Trent Boult saw New Zealand get off to a winning start against Pakistan

  • In-form sides fight for attention

    The neutral fan might find it difficult to look away from higher-profile matches in Australia and South Africa, but this New Zealand-Pakistan series, pitting two closely-matched and in-form ODI sides, promises to be a cracker
