Williamson wants Kiwis bowling improvement

New Zealand cricket team captain Kane Williamson feels Pakistan cricket team have a deep batting order and despite the two wins his bowlwers need to step up their game to ensure a series victory

Williamson put on 69 with Martin Guptill (45) for the second wicket and 74 with Taylor for the third to lift New Zealand to 158-3 before he was out in the 34th over.

New Zealand were 64/2 in 14 overs when rain arrived.

The Duckworth-Lewis-Stern calculation left the Black Caps chasing an adjusted total of 151 from 25 overs and the home side overhauled the target with more than an over to spare and eight wickets in hand.

Trent Boult took 5-17 as New Zealand bowled out Pakistan for 74 on Saturday to win the third one-day cricket worldwide by 183 runs and take a winning 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

Set 258 for victory at University Oval in the third ODI, Pakistan were in danger of making the lowest score in history before being bowled out for a dismal 74.

But then the squad struggled while Pakistani bowlers, Rumman Raees, Hasan Ali, and Shadab Khan significantly improved their performance from past two ODIs to restrict Kiwis at 257.

New Zealand have Colin de Grandhomme back in their squad after the allrounder returned from bereavement leave, but Williamson said they would wait to view the pitch Saturday morning before settling on their playing XI.Fakhar Zaman, who scored an unbeaten 82 in the opening game, is expected to return to the Pakistan side after missing game two because of a thigh injury. The last battle took place at Nelson on January 9 was the 100th between the two Teams, and it was won by New Zealand, registering its eighth consecutive win over Pakistan in ODIs. At one point in the match, Pakistan were reeling at 17/7.

Santner took 1-34 from his 10 overs and Astle claimed the wickets of Malik and captain Sarfraz Ahmed (3) to finish with 2-50 from seven overs.
