As New Zealand won the toss and opted to bat against Pakistan in the second ODI in Abu Dhabi, the team management revealed that Junaid will take no further part in the series after suffering a toe injury on his right foot.

Imam tried to pull Ferguson in the 13th over at the total of 54.

According to a source in the PCB, the doctors have advised Imam to rest for the next 72 hours. Fakhar, whilst nearing his best form, was severe on anything short and suddenly changed into T20 mode. Ferguson dismissed Zaman for 88. The wickets had come far too late for the Kiwis.

Pakistan suffered an injury setback to pace spearhead Junaid Khan and have brought Faheem Ashraf in the squad as Junaid's replacement. After clearing the long-on boundary, he held out to mid-off of the very next ball of Shaheen Afridi.

In the third over, Williamson was removed in a rather unfortunate way. At the end of 10 overs, New Zealand had scored 55 for 2.

New Zealand kept losing wickets at regular intervals while Ross Taylor was taking charge at other end. Pakistan battling has been struggling off late and will need to up their game if they are to challenge New Zealand in the remaining matches.

Owen Farrell got away with a controversial tackle on Andre Esterhuizen beyond the 80th minute in a 12-11 victory over South Africa last weekend, but Eddie Jones' side saw a marginal call go against them on this occasion as Sam Underhill's 75th-minute try was controversially chalked off by TMO Marius Jonker.

Pakistan's most expensive fast bowler, Hasan Ali (2-59), returned and had Nicholls bowled in the 38th over before Afridi snapped two more wickets to restrict New Zealand. There was no late order flourish for the Kiwis to frustrate Pakistan this time round.
