Boult, who arrived in the UAE after becoming a father for the first time, became only the third New Zealand bowler to pick a one-day international hat-trick. The left-arm fast bowler achieved the feat during the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/pakistan-and-new-zealand-in-uae-2018-200968/live-scores/pakistan-vs-new-zealand-live-cricket-score-1st-odi-match-187601-summary.html">first ODI</a> against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/pakistan/">Pakistan</a> at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. <p></p> <p></p>Boult first dismissed <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/fakhar-zaman/">Fakhar Zaman</a> after angling a back-of-a-length into the pads of the southpaw, who edged it on to the stumps. Zaman departed for just 1. He then fired in a wide yorker which <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/babar-azam/">Babar Azam</a> tried to jab at, but ended up finding the edge before it carried to <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ross-taylor/">Ross Taylor</a> at first slip. Boult, who has taken 122 wickets in 66 ODIs, completed his hat-trick with the wicket of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/mohammad-hafeez/">Mohammad Hafeez</a>, who was out plumb leg before. <p></p> <p></p>Fast-bowler <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/danny-morrison/">Danny Morrison</a> was the first Kiwi to claim an ODI hat-trick. He achieved the feat against India in 1994. Pace great <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/shane-bond/">Shane Bond</a> replicated the feat against Australia in 2007. <p></p> <p></p>New Zealand had set a 267-run target, courtesy Taylor s 80 and and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/tom-latham/">Tom Latham</a> s 68. <p></p> <p></p>Opting to bat, the BlackCaps lost openers George Worker and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/colin-munro/">Colin Munro</a> inside eight overs. Worker added just one to the total and departed after he was caught behind by Pakistan captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/sarfraz-ahmed/">Sarfraz Ahmed</a> off left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi. Munro smashed five boundaries during his 27-ball 29 but was trapped leg before off Shadab Khan in the eighth over. <p></p> <p></p><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/kane-williamson/">Kane Williamson</a> didn t stay for long after he picked up Mohammad Hafeez at short midwicket to give leg-spinner Shadab his second wicket. The Kiwi skipper departed for 27 off 38. <p></p> <p></p>It took a 130-run partnership for the fourth wicket between the veteran Taylor and Latham to steer the tourists, who were reeling at 78/3 in the 17th over when Williamson departed. Latham was more aggressive in his 64-ball knock that was decorated with five hits to the fence.
