Black Caps beat Pakistan in first ODI

Fast bowler Lockie Ferguson joins Trent Boult Tim Southee and Matt Henry in a strong pace contingent in the New Zealand ODI squad

Ross Taylor has enraged Pakistan after levelling a stunning accusation at Mohammed Hafeez as New Zealand won their ODI clash on Wednesday.

He took to Twitter and wrote, "When will Pakistan batsmen & batting staff realise that batting woes stem from lack of ability & technique against the short ball.Not a single batsman in this team pulls or hooks...not even good at leaving them".

Fast bowler Trent Boult became the third New Zealander to record a hat-trick in a one-day global as the Black Caps beat Pakistan by 47 runs.

"The hat-trick ball I was just trying to make him play and to slide one onto the pads is a great feeling".

He's done it! Trent Boult snares the third ODI hat-trick by a New Zealand bowler, against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi.

A 130-run fourth-wicket partnership between Ross Taylor and Tom Latham resurrected the innings before Latham was dismissed for 68 early in the 42nd over.

Grandhomme took 2 for 40 while Lockie Ferguson finished with 3 for 36.

Boult joined Danny Morrison and Shane Bond in the history books of New Zealand as he absolutely shut out the Pakistan top order to inflict their first loss in nine matches.

However, once Pakistan skipper Sarfraz dragged a Colin de Grandhomme delivery onto his stumps New Zealand were nearly home and dry.

Dems on track to win control of House
At a news conference on Wednesday, Mr Trump said his tax returns were already under audit and therefore he would not release them. More women than ever were running, along with veterans and minorities, many of them motivated by revulsion over Trump.

Imam-ul-Haq (34) and Shoaib Malik (30) added 63 for the fourth wicket but both fell in successive overs before the Sarfraz-Wasim stand briefly reignited hopes.

Earlier, Ross Taylor and Tom Latham scored fighting half-centuries to lift New Zealand to a challenging 266-9.

Earlier, after winning the toss and electing to bat, New Zealand's George Worker and Colin Munro didn't last long, the former edging tamely to Sarfraz Ahmed off Shaheen Afridi (4/46) before the teenage sensation removed his fellow opener lbw.

Shadab dismissed Kane Williamson for 27 before Taylor and Latham came together.

He then got Colin de Grandhomme edged at slip two balls later.

"We caught them at 210-7 but 50 plus runs for the last three wickets hurt us badly", said Sarfraz.

New Zealand will welcome pace spearhead Trent Boult who missed the Twenty20 series due to personal reasons while also adding batsman George Worker and spinner Ajaz Patel (as a cover for injured Todd Astle) in the squad.

After whitewashing the Kiwis in the T20I series, they crashed to a defeat by 47 runs at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
