  • Trent Boult five wickets New Zealand Pakistan cricket

It was a clean catch without any grappling from fellow fans.

"My (Albion-Kilda club cricket) teammates were giving me s**t because I dropped an absolute sitter on the boundary with two hands the other week before Christmas", Dougherty said after the classic catch.

'It hasn't really sunk in yet, I still can't believe I caught it, but it's awesome that I did catch it'.

A visibly disappointed Sarfraz Ahmed slammed his team's "disappointing batting flop" after New Zealand bowled out Pakistan for 74 to cruise to a 183-run victory in the third ODI in Dunedin on Saturday.

Batting first after winning the toss, New Zealand were bowled out for 257 in their 50 overs, a total that proved out to be a huge one in the end, as Pakistan collapsed to 74 all out - their fourth-lowest ODI total.

However, Trent Boult removed Azhar Ali, Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Hafeez in the space of five balls to put Pakistan in a hole they were never going to get out of.

Raees was the top run-scorer for Pakistan with 16 as only four batsmen could reach double-digit scores. Post winning the toss, New Zealand has elected to bat and scored 257 runs which included Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor's half centuries.

Pakistan were all out for 74 in the 28th over.

Pakistan's woes continued as Babar Azam was run out by Mitchell Santner for eight runs, while Shoaib Malik was sent packing by Lockie Ferguson and Shadab was cleaned up by Munro. Incidentally, Tent Boult bagged the man of the match award for delivering an impressive performance of 5-17.

He says they're "built strongly as a team, and have come a long way". "I think everyone did their job in terms of the bowling performance and the most important performances were the ones from the far end". It was announced that if any one among the crowd takes catch during the match, he will be rewarded as sum of 50 thousand dollars (31 lakh 80 thousand 525 rupees) as prize money.

New Zealand made a flying start with Martin Guptill and Colin Munro cracking sixes for their first scoring shots but the innings stalled soon after.

Ali, the top-ranked bowler in the world in ODIs, also dismissed Boult (13) with the last ball of the innings to finish with 3-59 while Raees took 3-51.
