Pakistan to break New Zealand jinx in ODIs, squads inside

Sarfraz will be hoping to take his men's red-hot T20 form into the 50-over format. — File

New Zealand made no official statement on their opinion of Hafeez's bowling in the series, with Boult brushing off any talks of a concern in his press addressal.

They gave it a good crack - adding 103 to give Pakistan an outside shot, but a superb de Grandhomme yorker uprooted Sarfraz for 64, and eventually the task became too challenging, with the Black Caps fittingly finishing it off with another flurry of wickets to get on the board in the new season.

There was fresh scrutiny on Mohammad Hafeez's bowling action on Wednesday when Ross Taylor appeared to publicly question its legality during the course of the first ODI between Pakistan and New Zealand in Abu Dhabi.

Pakistan will look to level the three-match series when the two teams meet in the second ODI on Friday.

That prompted another flurry of wickets as Lockie Ferguson (3-36) removed Hasan Ali (16) and Afridi in consecutive balls to end the innings in style 16 deliveries early.

Sarfraz Ahmed and Imad Wasim also combined effectively. Kiwis premier fast bowler Trent Boult was able to scalp a hat trick. He pointed out captain Kane Williamson's error in having just four fielders inside the circle and pounced on a free hit, and Pakistan needed 120 off the final 15. Whether or not it was an attempt to call attention to Hafeez's action, it enraged Sarfraz, who had a lengthy chat with the umpires, and had to be calmed down.

Earlier, Sarfraz Ahmed insists his team can end an 11-match losing run to New Zealand when the two sides meet in the first one-day worldwide in Abu Dhabi today.

Sarfraz Ahmed and Ross Taylor.

Hafeez was first suspended from bowling in December 2014, after being reported in November 2014 during a Test series.

A 130-run fourth-wicket partnership between Ross Taylor and Tom Latham resurrected the innings before Latham was dismissed for 68 early in the 42nd over.

The allrounder's reprieve didn't last long as he chased one floated up to Shadab and edged to first slip. Sarfraz said Taylor's actions were wrong.

However, Ish Sodhi (24) and Tim Southee (20) combined for 42 to keep New Zealand ticking over before Afridi intervened, the innings ended at 266-9.

Game two is back at the same venue on Saturday (NZT).

But Sarfraz, part of the team in the last 11 one-day internationals all of which Pakistan lost, wants to finally win against New Zealand.
