Martin Guptill made 86 in an unbroken 104-run partnership with Ross Taylor which carried New Zealand to an eight-wicket win over Pakistan on Tuesday in the rain-affected second one-day global.

Under the revised target they need 87 more runs from 11 overs with eight wickets in hand.

It took a stubborn rearguard action from Pakistan's tailenders to rescue their innings, with a 70-run eighth-wicket partnership off 43 balls between Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan. Five balls later, Amir convinced skipper Sarfraz Ahmed to review a lbw call turned down against Kane Williamson when he hadn't even opened his account. Tim Southee and Trent Boult were at the openers straightaway, Azhar Ali and Imam-ul-Haq - in for the injured Fakhar Zaman - struggling against generous early swing.

Earlier they also played a warm up match there and now they have started the competition with ODI series. A few overs later, Hafeez, after compiling 60 classy runs, charged Mitchell Santner in similarly unseemly fashion, only succeeding in chipping to short cover.

Shadab ended up scoring 52 off 68 deliveries, which included three boundaries and a six, before he was caught behind off the bowling of Ferguson.

Guptill shifted gears after play resumed, ending unbeaten on a 71-ball 86, to help New Zealand past the target with seven balls remaining. Babar Azam couldn't have offered an easier catch to first-slip, helping Lockie Ferguson open his account.

The players are standing in two lines, the players of one team wore green jerseys and one is in white. A police official said that the accused have been arrested in this case.

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

They were particularly belligerent after the rain-break - Guptill picked Hasan Ali for consecutive sixes in the 16th over.

Malik succumbed to dot-ball pressure and holed out off Astle for a 46-ball 27, prompting a mini-slide - Sarfraz Ahmed (3), Hafeez and Faheem Ashraf (7) all followed suit in quick succession, as Pakistan fell to 141/7. Our batting didn't do well and we needed the lower order to perform.

De Grandhomme missed the limited overs series against West Indies, and the first two ODIs against Pakistan, due to the death of his father in Zimbabwe.

Black Caps selector Gavin Larsen said the team was looking forward to seeing De Grandhomme back in the side.
