New Zealand decided to bat first and amassed a respectable total of 261. They owed it to the second-wicket partnership of Devon Conway and Kane Williamson, who put together a 181-run partnership. Williamson (85) was content to take a backseat as Conway (101) attacked Pakistan’s bowling assault on his way to his second ODI century.

Following that, the visitors lost all strength because to Mohammad Nawaz’s magnificent 4/34 spell. Pakistan’s aim of 262 was established by Mitchell Santner, who persisted and played a vital innings of 37.

In response, Babar Azam led Pakistan in scoring with 79 but struggled mightily during his 114-ball stint at the crease. The choice by New Zealand to field three spinners paid off as they maintained control.

With wickets falling consistently at regular intervals, the hosts failed to keep up with the scoring rate and eventually perished to the pressure of it.

Brief scores: New Zealand 261 in 49.5 overs (Devon Conway 101, Kane Williamson 85; Mohammad Nawaz 4-38, Naseem Shah 3-58) beat Pakistan 182 in 43 overs (Babar Azam 79, Mohammad Rizwan 28; Tim Southee 2-33, Ish Sodhi 2-38) by 79 runs.
