10.50pm That is that. Boult is all smiles. In his first match of the tour, new-dad Boult became the third New Zealander - after Morrison and Bond - to bag a hat-trick in ODI cricket. Sarfraz and Imad then lent some resistance with fifties each but the rising asking rate was too much to overcome in the end. Goodbye and good night for now

Trent Boult, Man of the Match: Nice to be back out there and get the win for the boys. I think the new ball is a key part of the game and we know what early wicket can do to chasing totals. The hat-trick ball I was just trying to make him play and to slide one onto the pads is a great feeling. I've had a bit of a light winter but the summer pretty much starts here. Hopefully, it will be enjoyable. I was just hoping you would ask me what I enjoyed more. The six (laughs).
