PAK vs NZ 1st ODI Highlights: Pakistan beat New Zealand by 5 wickets

PAK vs NZ 1st ODI Live Score: After playing a 2-2 stalemate in a five-match T20I series, Pakistan and New Zealand lock horns against each other in five ODIs at the former's home. Having defeated Pakistan earlier in January 2023 in a 50-over series, New Zealand would look to double the result in an ODI World Cup Year. However, Kiwis would have to adjust to the Rawalpindi surface as they return to the venue after two decades.

The two teams faced each other in a three-match ODI series earlier in January 2023, where New Zealand won by 2-1. They have played 111 ODIs against each other till now, where Pakistan hold slight advantage of 56-50. 1 game ended in a tie and 4 were no result.

Second innings updates:

And Pakistan have began their chase. Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman are in the middle as they look to provide Pakistan with a solid start. Adam Milne and Matt Henry start for New Zealand. 

Pakistan have made a strong start to the chase. They have made 125 in 22 overs for the loss of 1 wicket. Fakhar Zaman is unbeaten after scoring a fifty, while Imam went back for 60. The required rate is under 6 and Pakistan are in control of this chase.

Pakistan are bossing this chase now. After slow start, Babar Azam is looking fluent while Fakhar Zaman looks set to score yet another ODI ton. Pakistan are 173/1 after 29 overs and New Zealand are in need of some quick wickets.

Centurion Fakhar Zaman is gone now and do New Zealand have it in them to create panic in Pakistan camp? They still need 32 runs from 42 balls. It might get close if the Kiwis nip out a couple more wickets soon.

Pakistan have won the match comfortably in the end. They take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

First innings updates:

Pakistan won the toss and they bowled first. Big update on Haris Sohail. He is feeling a little problem in his left shoulder and will be assessed again later. He is not in the team. Chad Bowes and Will Young are opening the innings for New Zealand. Can they send them to a solid start? Will Young is batting beautifully and has hit a fifty, while Chad Bowes has gone back after making 18 runs. Daryl Mitchell is at the crease with Young.

We are halfway stage in the first innings and New Zealand are going well at the moment. They have made 141/1 in 25 overs. Young is in his 80s and is set for a hundred. Meanwhile, Mitchell is also coming close to a fifty. For Pakistan, Naseem Shah is the most economical until now, while Haris Rauf has scaled the only wicket in the game. New Zealand are 2 down after 39 overs and have 218 on board. Young missed his century as he caught out at 86. It's Mitchell who is closing in a hundred now. He is in the 90s and is accompanied by skipper Latham.

We are down to the final five overs in the first innings. NZ have gone past the 250-run mark and Mitchell has smashed a hundred. They have scored 251/4 in 45 overs and Nicholls is in the middle along with him. Can the Kiwis get 300?

New Zealand ended at 288

No, they won't get to 300 today. It's 288/7 that they have got in their first innings.
