New Zealand wins toss, bats in 3rd ODI vs

Green Shirts collapsed inexplicably in the final match with one of the lowest total ever scores in an ODI matches.

After Taylor was out for 52 in the 43rd over with the total 209-4, New Zealand slumped dramatically, losing its next six wickets for 48 runs.

New Zealand have dismissed Pakistan for a record-low score to win their one-day worldwide in Dunedin and seal the five-match series.

The game was at an interesting stage, with New Zealand 64 for two after 14 overs, when rain arrived. The Kiwis will play the Men in Green on Saturday at Dublin for the third one-day global and will look to express the way their skipper is expecting them to do.

With Ross Taylor taking three sharp catches at first slip - Azhar Ali (0), Mohammad Hafeez (0) and Shoaib Malik (3) - it was as good as game over.

The captain made 73 and combined with Taylor (52) for an important 74-run partnership for the third wicket.

While it didn't come back to haunt them, the Black Caps might look back at their final 10 overs with the bat and shake their heads. At one point in the match, Pakistan were reeling at 17/7.

Williamson made an inspired decision to call on part-time medium pacer Colin Munro, who reveled in conditions in which the ball often held up on the surface.

Williamson's game-high 73 from 101 balls was far from one of his prettiest innings, but he kept his head down and grafted his way to his 33rd ODI fifty.

However, even after New Zealand's bowling attack was able to keep Pakistan batsmen quiet in both the matches, the Kiwi skipper feels that his team needs to improve their game standards, especially with the bowl.

Taylor, who is set to become the seventh New Zealander to play 200 or more ODIs when the teams meet again in Hamilton on Tuesday, raised his 40th ODI half century in 59 deliveries.
