Pakistan have been found to have fallen short of the targeted over rate in Hamilton by five overs
Pakistan's stand-in captain Azhar Ali has said his team had been 30 to 35 runs short of where they would have liked to have been at tea, suggesting that perhaps the subsequent collapse was sparked by a high required rate
For the third time in their history, Pakistan managed to lose ten wickets for less than a 100 after a century-stand by the openers
