The Pakistan-New Zealand series has been an evenly fought battle so far. The three-match-Test series ended 1-1 and so did the teo-match-T20I series. The ODI currently stands a 2-2. In light of that, today’s match is going to prove the winner of a hard-contested series. Live scorecard and ball-by-ball commentary of the 5th ODI between Pakistan and New Zealand

In the previous ODI, Kane Williamson was at his classy best, scoring a century to anchor New Zealand’s innings. The Pakistani batsmen put up a spirited effort to go down by just seven runs in the end. The big positive from Pakistan’s perspective was that veteran, Younis Khan was among the runs, with an impressive century, after a string of low scores in the 50 over format.
