The National Stadium in Karachi will host the fourth match of the ODI series between Pakistan and New Zealand on Friday. Pakistan have been great in the five match series so far and have really taken the lead.

Both sides reached Karachi, and Pakistan led the series 2-0. After being required to bat first, Pakistan finished their innings on 287/6, thanks to fifties from Imam-ul-Haq (90) and Babar Azam (54) and cameos from their lower-order batsmen. Matt Henry bowled beautifully for New Zealand, picking up three wickets.

Chasing 288 to keep the series alive, Tom Blundell (65) and Tom Latham (45) batted well but the Kiwis continued to lose wickets at regular intervals. Cole McConchie tried hard and remained unbeaten at 64 but it wasn’t enough as they were dismissed for 261 at the end to lose the match by 26 runs. Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah and Muhammad Wasim Jr. chose Nusaybin to help their team successfully defend the aggregate.

New Zealand has been outplayed in the series so far. The hosts looked much better and will be looking to repeat their performance in the fourth ODI on Friday.
