New Zealand lead the series 1-0.

In the first match, the Black Caps registered a 47-run victory on Pakistan.

New Zealand, who are ranked third in the ICC ODI Team Rankings, kept the lid on Pakistan’s explosive batsmen with their strong bowling display in the first ODI.

Trent Boult, who missed the T20I series as he was on paternity leave, made a strong comeback to the national team by becoming the third New Zealand bowler to claim an ODI hat-trick.

Defending 266, Boult reduced Pakistan to 8 for 3 after he dismissed Fakhar Zaman (one), Babar Azam (nought) and Mohammad Hafeez (nought) in the third over.

He finished with figures of 3 for 54 as Pakistan were bowled out for 219 in 47.2 overs.

Veteran batsman Ross Taylor top-scored with 80 while wicketkeeper Tom Latham struck 68 off 64 balls to lead New Zealand to 266-9 after they won the toss and batted at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

In response Pakistan crumbled to 85-6, before Sarfraz Ahmed (64) and Imad Wasim (50) added 103 for the seventh wicket before being bundled out for 219.
