New Zealand set 267 for Pakistan in first ODI


ABU DHABI: Despite late strike by Shadab Khan, New Zealand Wednesday set 267 target for Pakistan in the first day-night international in Abu Dhabi .
Pakistan’s leg-spinner Shadab Khan took three wickets in an over but, the New Zealand scored 266-9.
Shadab finished with 4-38 — his third four-wicket haul — after Ross Taylor (80) and Tom Latham (68) had stitched together a 130-run partnership for the fourth wicket after New Zealand won the toss and opted to bat.
Paceman Shaheen Shah Afridi finished with 4-46.
Pakistan crushed New Zealand 3-0 in the preceding Twenty20 series on Sunday — their second whitewash in a week following a romp over Australia, also in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
