10.50pm Williamson collects the trophy and celebrates with his team-mates. GP and Williamson lift the trophy. That's all we have for you from NZ's tour of Pakistan. Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. This is Deivarayan Muthu signing off on the behalf of Himanshu Agrawal and Venkat Raghav. Take care and good night.

10.20pm Gee! What an innings from Glenn Phillips. 63 not out off 42 balls at a strike rate of 150 to arrest a collapse and snatch victory from Pakistan's grasp. GP prides himself on being an entertainer. This was as good as it could get. The knock included belting drives, powerful back-foot swats and great urgency between the wickets. GP - upset stomach and bad knee and all - finishes the job for New Zealand. He gets a big hug from Williamson and the rest of his team-mates. This is New Zealand's first ODI series win in the sub-continent since defeating Bangladesh by 2-1 in 2008. We will be back shortly for the post-match presentation.

Phillips, Player of the Match: I think at the end of the day, I wasn't feeling great. I just watched the ball and played as aggressively as possible. The intent was the key to it and going a bit leg side...

Conway, Player of the Series: Obviously, the surface has been batter-friendly and building those partnerships has been special. It's a special hundred and overall winning the series...grateful we had a good time in Pakistan. The communication with Kane was just to bat and he kept reminding me that. Credit to Kane for helping me through that period. We loved it in Pakistan and the support was special. So, thank you everyone.

Babar: We were 20 runs, when Rizwan and Fakhar played it looked like we'd touch 300. But when wickets fall, it is difficult for new batters. Lots of soft dismissals and we were 20-30 runs short. We were expecting more turn than we got. But spinners played their role. But we couldn't quite execute in the last 10 overs with the ball.

Williamson: Yeah, he wasn't feeling great either. He came out and played with a lot of freedom. I thought we were in the game at the halfway stage but made a few errors. For Glenn to play that knock, and credit to Pakistan as well. It was a hard-fought series. Glenn was just playing how he plays and hit it out of the middle. I don't think he wanted to run too much; he was a bit under the weather. He came out and just grabbed it [the game]. The surface has been competitive - maybe mid-200 or late 200. To take wickets through the middle and back end to keep them to a par total...Few unknowns but some good partnerships to get close and then Glenn. We had a fantastic time in Pakistan and as a team we really enjoyed our time on and off the field here.

Asfand: "Was it really that important to rest Naseem for a series decider?"

Tarequl Islam: "An innings to remember for GP. A match to remember as well. A match to forget for Babar! Most probably his final ODI match as captain?"

Manu Ajmani: "If these are any signs of how exciting cricket is - India vs New Zealand is going to be a cracker of a series

Atif Azad: "Hasnain's problem is performing under pressure. He has got the toys: super pace and ability to swing the new ball. But at the death he is not our go to bowler. With Haris coming back from injury and Nasim sitting out, we have no option. "

Sheikh Bilal Kh: "Hasnain reminds me of an updated version of M Sami - genuine pace, but bowls so many loose balls"
