Unchanged New Zealand bat first in second ODI

"We've been keeping a close eye on Will and like the look of his all-round game and skillset

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson won his second successive toss and elected to bat first against Pakistan in the second One-Day global on Friday.

Imamul Haq was struck at the top of his helmet. Although, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) later revealed that there was no damage seen in the scan reports but it is still unclear if he'll play the final game or not. Imam and Zaman were hardly troubled by New Zealand's pace until Ferguson's sharp rising delivery forced Imam to retire hurt on 16.

He was immediately sent to a hospital for CT scans and the team management said they would monitor him for the next 48 hours.

Ul-Haq before he slumps to the floor. "He joined the team and will remain under observation of Team Physio", the PCB tweeted.

Ross Taylor was the only form of resistance for the visitors, adding to his 80 from the opening ODI with an unbeaten 86 from 120 balls, but he didn't get the support required as only two other batsmen reached 20, neither in quick time.

With the win Pakistan broke a four-year losing streak of 12 consecutive ODIs against the Black Caps, starting with a 3-2 defeat in the UAE in 2014.

In his next over he deflected a straight drive to run out Kane Williamson (one) at the non-striker's end. The dazed Imam went off in the ambulance for a concussion check, but that only brought the prodigious Babar Azam to the wicket, and he teamed up with Fakhar Zaman to punish the Black Caps bowlers.

In his second spell Shaheen yorked Tom Latham for one while Mohammad Hafeez bowled George Worker for 28 to leave New Zealand struggling at 73-4.

Ferguson dismissed both batsmen in the 29th over when Zaman skied a catch to Ish Sodhi, and Zaman followed when his upper cut was caught well on the edge of the boundary line at third man. Nicholls was back in action at forward short leg when Shoaib Malik's hard pull ballooned off the fielder's left shoulder and Sodhi grabbed the diving catch.
