Commentary

That then just about winds up our coverage of the game. Here is George Binoy's bulletin of the game. The next game is on the 26th from Queenstown. Until then, this is Nitin Sundar signing off on behalf of the team at ESPNcricinfo. So long and thanks for all the fish.

196 balls to spare in NZ's innings, making it the second most comprehensive win in terms of balls remaining, for NZ v Pak. The visitors will surely think of changing their combination in the next game, especially the fast bowling, but the bigger worry is the mindless batting against the moving ball. Great turnaround in one-day form for NZ, they did everything right today, barring getting the hat-tricks!

Afridi: "We lost too many early wickets. The ball was swinging and seaming a lot.. Misbah played a very responsible innings. We'll definitely step up in the next game. Tanvir is coming back after a long time. Shoaib was struggling a bit. But we have good bench strength there."

Vettori: "It was a good win for us after a long time. Tim Southee produced some great swing. We knew he's a bowler who can bowl really well always, and he put it all together in this series so far."

Southee is the MoM: "The ball was swinging around, and I was lucky to pick up the wickets while the others did a good job. Good to have Allan Donald around. Bit stiff after the Tests, but nice and fresh today."

Shahid Afridi to Taylor, 1 run, Taylor finishes it off with a flick towards midwicket and picks up a single. This is a walloping. In a 50-overs a side game, we have had under 55 overs all counted. And New Zealand have won a game for first time since what seems like the Mesozoic era.

Shahid Afridi to Guptill, 3 runs, is that the end of the game? Not yet, one more to go. Gutill looks to slam one through the off side and gets a thick outside edge that runs away very fine towards third man for three

Abdur Rehman to Taylor, no run, full on off, flicked powerfully, but midwicket intercepts. Almost a run out at the bowler's end, but the throw misses as Guptill dives in

Abdur Rehman to Taylor, no run, short outside off and he looks to cut, can't find the gap this time.

Abdur Rehman to Taylor, SIX runs, Mis-hit but safely over square leg for six. That's the patent Ross Taylor slog-sweep across the line. It was in the slot, on middle and leg at a nice length but he seemed to get be a little late on the shot and hence the top edge. It just kept going, carried over Shoaib on the ropes easily

Abdur Rehman to Taylor, no run, fired in short and flat at 98 kph, Taylor works it back to the bowler off the back foot
