Opener Martin Guptill produced a superb performance with the bat as New Zealand thrashed Pakistan by eight wickets through the Duckworth-Lewis method in the second ODI to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series here at the Saxton Oval on Tuesday.
Pakistan looked on course to level the series as they claimed the wickets of Colin Munro (zero) and Kane Williamson (19) to have New Zealand at 47 for two in the 10th over.
Attention now turns to University Oval in Dunedin where allrounder Colin de Grandhomme will rejoin the Black Caps for game three after he was granted leave following the sudden death of his father, Laurence, in Zimbabwe last month.
Outside their cameos, and Mohammad Hafeez's 60 from 71 balls, New Zealand straitjacketed the visitors at the outset.
The hosts left the field at 64 for two after 14 overs, chasing 247 for victory.
Guptill also hammered five fours and five sixes in his blistering knock.
Mohammad Hafeez's steady 60 off 71 had anchored the Pakistan innings, but he disappeared in the 32nd over and they looked in big trouble at 6-127. The sixes were hit at will for Guptill - five of them in total - while Ross Taylor provided suitable support. A 45-run partnership provided some hope of a Pakistan revival, as the pair began to rotate the strike regularly and use their feet to the spinners.
Earlier the Pakistani's started slowly before getting through to 246 for 9 in their 50 overs. Babar Azam couldn't have offered an easier catch to first-slip, helping Lockie Ferguson open his account. But just as the momentum was shifting, Malik danced down the wicket and hit one straight to long-on. An over after successfully reviewing a caught-behind call, he became the first of many to gift-wrap his wicket - pulling a short ball well outside of off-stump off Trent Boult straight down the throat of Munro at square leg.
Malik succumbed to dot-ball pressure and holed out off Astle for a 46-ball 27, prompting a mini-slide - Sarfraz Ahmed (3), Hafeez and Faheem Ashraf (7) all followed suit in quick succession, as Pakistan fell to 141/7. The Black Caps have won nine games across all formats. Shadab went on to make 52, to match his highest score in ODIs and to drag Pakistan closer to a competitive total.
