Pakistan were bowled out for just 74 in response to New Zealand's 257.

Taylor and Tom Latham added another 51 runs to the scoreboard before Taylor was trapped lbw off the bowling of Shadab for 52, which came off 64 deliveries and included four boundaries.

Batting first after winning the toss, New Zealand were bowled out for 257 in their 50 overs, a total that proved out to be a very big one in the end, as Pakistan collapsed to 74 all out - their fourth-lowest ODI total. He took 81 balls to reach his 33rd half-century in one-day internationals and went on to top-score with 73, providing the backbone of the New Zealand middle order.

The tourists escaped that ignominy with an unbeaten 14 from captain Sarfraz Ahmed and scores of 14 and 16 by tailenders Mohammad Amir and Rumman Raees.

With Pakistan's top order decimated following a fiery spell from Kiwi paceman Trent Boult, the Men in Green were facing the ignominy of recording the lowest ever one-day global score as they teetered on a scarcely believable 32-7. We will sit together and sort it out.

Pakistan suffered a humiliating loss when the scoreboard showed they lost with a margin of massive 183 runs! The problem is the new ball.

The first in Wellington a week ago was by 61 runs, while the second on Wednesday in Nelson was by eight wickets.

Williamson was ecstatic to have already wrapped up the series, and said: "Fantastic performance all around, a tough surface to get in on. Tim and Trent to start off, just built up that pressure", he said.

"We want to be a little bit better there".

While Man-of-the-Match Boult turned out to be the pick of the bowlers, Colin Munro and Lockie Ferguson contributed with two wickets apiece. Focus is to win each game.
