New Zealand batting first in third ODI against Pakistan

A local builder is $50,000 richer after taking a spectacular one-handed catch in New Zealand's one-day international clash with Pakistan

The last battle took place at Nelson on January 9 was the 100th between the two Teams, and it was won by New Zealand, registering its eighth consecutive win over Pakistan in ODIs.

The visiting Pakistan has a very little margin of error, it can afford to make; otherwise, the five-match ODI series will easily slip away to New Zealand which is already leading it by 2-0.

However, even after New Zealand's bowling attack was able to keep Pakistan batsmen quiet in both the matches, the Kiwi skipper feels that his team needs to improve their game standards, especially with the bowl.

"We've had a practice game in Nelson so we know the pitch and hopefully we will do well", said captain Sarfraz Ahmed. Pakistan Team had made a decision to bat first and were seven down for mere 141 runs. "To see their lower order come out and put together a partnership that gave them a total which could have been a tough chase ... it's important that we learn from that".

There is also the prospect of rain late in the day in Dunedin.

Fakhar Zaman, who scored an unbeaten 82 in the opening game, is expected to return to the Pakistan side after missing game two because of a thigh injury.

Separately, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson has called on his bowlers to be more accurate in the final overs. They had been training with a slab and would require quick feet to counter the bowling, he added.
