Fantasy Cricket: Dream11 tips for New Zealand v Pakistan 2nd ODI

Martin Guptill struck an unbeaten 86 to power New Zealand to an eight-wicket victory via Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method over Pakistan in the second one day global at Saxton Oval, Nelson on Tuesday. An explosive innings from the opener - who scored 86 off 71 balls - ensured New Zealand carried a 2-0 lead into into the third ODI at Dunedin with an eight-wicket win.

After rains played the spoilsport and delayed the play for more than two hours, the target was revised to 151 off 25 overs.

In reply New Zealand lost the inform Colin Munro for no score in the first over, while captain Kane Williamson fell in the ninth over for 19.

Before the interruption, New Zealand spent much of the game enjoying the upper hand, and barring the salvo of a 49-ball 70 run partnership between Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan, Pakistan couldn't quite lay claim on any passage of play.

Imam-ul-Haq, in for the injured Fakhar Zaman, was out for two in the fourth over and Azhar Ali followed five balls later for six.

That Pakistan warmed-up for this series with a comprehensive 120-run victory at the same venue would inspire confidence in the side that suffered a top-order disintegration on Saturday and eventually succumbed to a 61-run defeat (on DLS) in the rain-hit encounter.

They reached that with 7 balls to spare with Guptill unbeaten on 86 and Ross Taylor 45.

Earlier, Pakistan had won the toss and opted to bat first.

Hasan then blasted his first 50 and Khan his second when they mounted a rescue mission with Pakistan 141 for seven in the 37th over.

The 16, 17 and 18th over of New Zealand's chase produced a total of 41 runs and the equation was brought down to a very manageable 42 required off as many deliveries.

Mohammad Hafeez's steady 60 off 71 had anchored the Pakistan innings, but he disappeared in the 32nd over and they looked in big trouble at 6-127.

Earlier, Pakistan recovered well from a precarious 39/3 by the 11th over to 246/9 at the end of their stipulated 50 overs.

However, Hasan and Shadab's partnership allowed them to set a competitive total.

Ferguson took highest three wickets where Astle and Southee took two wickets for the team Black Caps.

Speedster Lockie Ferguson was also a major contributor with 3-39 from 10 overs.
