"We've been keeping a close eye on Will and like the look of his all-round game and skillset

Pakistan ended a run of 12 straight one-day worldwide losses to New Zealand with a comprehensive victory in Abu Dhabi to draw level in the series at 1-1.

New Zealand stayed faithful to the same combination which won the first one-day worldwide by 47 runs, also played in Abu Dhabi. He was taken to the hospital in an ambulance.

Pakistan take on New Zealand.

New Zealand: George Worker, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (captain), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult. They are unchanged from the side that beat Pakistan by 47 runs in the first game, though Williamson said he was hoping for more runs from the top order.

Zaman, who had a poor 57 runs in the last six one-day internationals, punished the New Zealand bowlers with 11 boundaries and had given Pakistan a rapid 54 run start with Imam.

Babar Azam (46) went later the same over, both to Ferguson, and the innings lost some momentum.

On the other hand, Junaid Khan was ruled out of the series with a toe injury and he was replaced by Faheem Ashraf.
