It was evident how Pakistan plays ODIs. defeat the opposition and reach a point total. Make them and everyone else thinks they are having trouble catching them despite a strong performance from the top order, and then easily surpass the target.
Naseem Shah, who last played in August 2022, picked up his second ODI five-for in back-to-back matches after Pakistan elected to bowl first, limiting New Zealand to 255 for 9. After that, Pakistan took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series in Karachi thanks to outstanding half-centuries from Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, and Mohammad Rizwan. Rizwan struggled to get going at first and then experienced cramping near the finish before launching an offensive of creative strategies against New Zealand to lead the team to a six-wicket victory.

Fakhar and Imam-ul-Haq promptly launched Pakistan’s 256-run chase. Imam scored four runs off his first ball, which he drove through midwicket with the help of a misfield, as both hitters pounced on rookie Henry Shipley’s errant lines and lengths. All of this happened before Imam attempted to challenge Michael Bracewell by skipping down the track, but he was only able to miss one to mid-on.
After that, Fakhar and Babar contributed 78 runs off 103 deliveries for the second wicket, giving Pakistan a solid foundation. Fakhar appeared at ease for the majority of his inning, while Babar struggled after the first powerplay when Bracewell and Mitchell Santner entered the game. Babar was a little hesitant of the turn despite hitting consecutive balls from Santner that he slog-swept for a six and pulled for a four, as Bracewell and Santner varied the flight, pace, and angle.
Babar was given out for lack of brain when he failed to catch Santner’s arm ball on 24, but he was given out on review because the tracker indicated the ball would have missed his leg stump. Early on, he also attempted a few unusual reverse sweeps on Bracewell. On the other hand, Fakhar was effectively utilizing the sweep and milking the singles to reach his half-century. The partnership was ended, though, when Bracewell snuck a ball past Fakhar’s sluggish effort to bowl him.
82 balls later, Babar and Rizwan had added 60. It moved slowly, and the strokeplay wasn’t particularly helped by the slow music. Glenn Phillips, a part-time offspinner, was then added by Kane Williamson to prevent more scores. Babar quickly reached another half-century, becoming the tenth player to reach that mark in the last 11 ODI innings, even though Pakistan was able to stay up with the pace of the asking rate. However, Phillips quickly succeeded in tricking Babar and putting pressure on him by having him stand on one leg.
The pressure was then put back on New Zealand by Haris Sohail, who hadn’t played an ODI since 2020, with a 23-ball 32. He hit Tim Southee over deep midwicket twice to significantly tip the balance in Pakistan’s favor. Rizwan saw them home after he collapsed and continued to hold a perfect 77.
