Trent Boult Hat-Trick Fuels New Zealand’s Win Over Pakistan

“It’s good to be behind out there and get a win for a boys,” pronounced Boult, who missed a 3-0 detriment in a preceding Twenty20 array due to a birth of his child.

“I consider a new round is a pivotal partial of a diversion and we know what early wickets can do to chasing totals. 

“The hat-trick round we was usually perplexing to make him play and to trip one onto a pads is a good feeling.” 

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 a toss and batted during Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

In response Pakistan crumbled to 85-6, before Sarfraz Ahmed (64) and Imad Wasim (50) combined 103 for a seventh wicket.

However, once Pakistan skipper Sarfraz dragged a Colin de Grandhomme smoothness onto his stumps New Zealand were roughly home and dry.

Grandhomme took 2 for 40 while Lockie Ferguson finished with 3 for 36.

Boult joins disdainful club

Boult unprotected Pakistan’s batting woes early on, bowling Zaman off his pads before carrying Azam held during trip and afterwards trapping Hafeez leg-before with a pointy inswinging delivery.

He assimilated quick bowlers Danny Morrison (v India during Napier in 1999) and Shane Bond (v Australia during Hobart in 2007) as a usually New Zealanders to take an ODI hat-trick.

Imam-ul-Haq (34) and Shoaib Malik (30) combined 63 for a fourth wicket though both fell in unbroken overs before a Sarfraz-Wasim mount quickly reignited hopes.

Earlier, New Zealand recovered from 78-3 and afterwards 210-7 to set a severe target.

Paceman Shaheen Shah Afridi, personification usually his fourth one-day international, jolted New Zealand during a start with a wickets of George Worker (one) and Colin Munro (29).

Shadab Khan discharged Kane Williamson for 27 before Taylor and Latham came together.

The span gathered a fourth-wicket mount of 130, though a detonate of 3 wickets from Pakistan leg-spinner Shadab in a 42nd over seemed to hindrance their charge.

He pinned Latham leg-before and did a same to Henry Nicholls (nought) a really subsequent ball, before stealing De Grandhomme dual balls after when he edged to initial trip though scoring.

But tailenders Ish Sodhi (24) and Tim Southee (20) combined 42 changed runs for a eighth wicket to give New Zealand a some-more rival total, as Shaheen finished with 4 for 46 in his 9 overs.

“We held them during 210-7 though 50 and runs for a final 3 wickets harm us badly,” pronounced Sarfraz. 

“New Zealand have good new round bowlers and early wickets pushed us too much.”

The feat gave New Zealand a 1-0 lead in a three-match array and extended their ODI winning strain opposite Pakistan to 12 matches dating behind to Dec 2014.

The remaining matches are in Abu Dhabi on Friday and in Dubai on Sunday.
