Guptill smashes NZ to victory over Pakistan

New Zealand were set a target of 151 in 25 overs after rain stopped play for more than two hours in the second one-day worldwide against Pakistan in Nelson on Tuesday.

Choosing to bat first, Pakistan found themselves in early trouble as openers Imam-ul-Haq and Azhar Ali were dismissed by Trent Boult and Tim Southee for two and six runs respectively.

For the second time this series, rain intervened before the match was finished with New Zealand in front. But in 2nd ODI which was taken place in 9th January, 2018 at Saxton Oval, Nelson New Zealand won by 8 wickets by applying D/L method. Fine weather is forecast. "I thought for the first half the guys were brilliant with the ball and then Pakistan showed some real resistance at the end and put some partnerships together to get what could have been a tricky little total on that surface".

In addition, a drop catch of New Zealand's Captain Kane Williamson by his Counterpart behind the wicket Sarfraz Ahmed also proved costly for Pakistan as the former eventually ended his innings for 115. Tim Southee got the wicket in nearly identical fashion to the first ODI, Azhar falling over to off stump and missing a straight one that thudded into his pads. Pakistan fell apart spectacularly in the field, and New Zealand completed the chase with seven balls to spare.

But, like the rest of the market's high-end headsets, the Vive Pro will still only run with the help of a powerful computer. At the same time, HTC unveiled the Vive Wireless Adaptor , which they say will be the first wireless VR adapter to market.

It was only contributions from Mohammad Hafeez (60), Shadab (52) and Hasan Ali (51) that played a vital role to help Pakistan recover and post 246 for nine in the 50 overs.

That Pakistan warmed-up for this series with a comprehensive 120-run victory at the same venue would inspire confidence in the side that suffered a top-order disintegration on Saturday and eventually succumbed to a 61-run defeat (on DLS) in the rain-hit encounter. An explosive innings from the opener - who scored 86 off 71 balls - ensured New Zealand carried a 2-0 lead into into the third ODI at Dunedin with an eight-wicket win. Astle came in the firing line in the 43rd over that went for 21 runs, as Hasan struck his third six and a couple of fours to bring up the fifty of his partnership with Shadab. Malik had been in good touch during the last ODI assignment against Sri Lanka in UAE, but doesn't boast of a good record in New Zealand.

Lockie Ferguson (3-39) joined the wicket-taking act as he had Babar Azam (10) caught by Taylor as the visitors were reeling at 39 for three.
