Rain spoils Pakistan-New Zealand ODI series decider in Dubai

Ferguson's 11 wickets for the one-day global series at an average of 12.8 and economy rate of 4.8 shone through the gloom of the Dubai washout in game three, which saw the Black Caps and Pakistan both pose with the trophy at 1-1.

Afridi has been on a roll in the ongoing ODI series against New Zealand bagging wickets at a phenomenal average of 10.5 runs. Rain halted the play with New Zealand 35/1 in 6.5 overs and after a lengthy delay, the ground was deemed unfit for the match to resume and the series ended at 1-1.

New Zealand were 35 for 1 in 7 overs in reply when rains intervened, and they needed 245 more runs to win the match and the series.

Fakhar Zaman (65) helped Pakistan get off to the start they were after, then it was splendid knocks from Babar Azam (92) and Haris Sohail (60) helped Pakistan set 280 for the Blackcaps to chase. Latham hurled the ball towards the non-striker's end, there was no backup and this enabled Pakistan another run.

Sohail and Zaman shared a run-a-ball 108 for the third wicket before Ferguson beat Sohail off a slower delivery and Worker picked up a smart low catch at square leg boundary. His innings included six fours and two sixes.

New Zealand were without their skipper Kane Williamson who pulled out with a groin injury with Tom Latham leading the side.

Fakhar Zaman had a new partner in Mohammad Hafeez, standing-in for Imam-ul-Haq, who had been advised to miss the match, having taken a blow on his grille in the last match.

By that time though, there was already little doubt about the result, after Pakistan expertly tied down the Black Caps batsmen in a superb display of bowling on the restrictive Abu Dhabi wicket.
