Guptil stars as New Zealand whitewash Pakistan in ODI series

Anchor: Martin Guptill hundred underpinned New Zealand's total.

Henry makes his first global appearance since the Boxing Day ODI against the West Indies, replacing world class left-armer Trent Boult, who is rested.

"It's a used pitch and, hopefully, it's better to start with then maybe slows up a little bit", captain Kane Williamson said. There was a lot of cricket in a short period of time and the guys backed it up really nicely on the different surfaces and played some smart cricket.

"To take that momentum and confidence with us of beating another good side, I think that would do the boys a world of good".

After the returning Matt Henry (4-53) scythed through Pakistan's top order and sparked the now-familiar pavilion procession, New Zealand dismissed the tourists for 256 to win by 15 runs.

It gave his innings greater urgency and he brought up his 13th ODI century off 125 balls, including 10 fours and a six.

Colin de Grandhomme offered some resistance with an unbeaten 29 off 21 balls but Pakistan will back their chances of reaching the target of 272 in the small boundaries at the Basin Reserve.

Left-arm seamer Rumman Raees was the pick of the Pakistan bowlers with 3-67 in 10 overs while Faheem Ashraf bagged 2-49 in nine overs.

Pakistan slumped to 31-3 before Sohail (63) and Shadab (54) rebuilt the innings with a 105-run partnership for the sixth wicket.

Umar Amin, Aamer Yamin, and Mohammad Nawaz were included.

Pakistan excelled through their middle and lower order but could not escape the gravitational pull of the Black Caps' black hole, gradually slipping to defeat across the afternoon at the match in Wellington on Friday.
