Pakistan has clinched the top spot in the world rankings for ODI cricket after beating New Zealand for the fourth time in a row. The host team achieved a massive victory of 102 runs by piling up a mountain of 334 runs for 6 wickets. Babar Azam scored a century and Salman Ali Agha scored a fifty while Shan Masood contributed 44 runs. In the end, the power-hitting of Iftikhar Ahmed, Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Muhammad Haris led the team to a big score. In response, New Zealand could only manage 232 runs, with Tom Latham scoring 60, Mark Chapman scoring 46, and Daryl Mitchell scoring 34. Osama Mir took 4 wickets and Wasim Jr took 3 wickets for Pakistan.

Pakistan lost its first wicket when Fakhar Zaman was caught by wicketkeeper Tom Blundell off Matt Henry’s ball with a score of 36. However, Shaun Masood continued to score boundaries until Ish Soodi stumped him on 44. Mohammad Rizwan was run out on Matt Henry’s throw when the total was 128. Babar Azam completed his fifty off 58 balls and then improved his strike rate to score a century off 113 balls. Salman Ali Agha also took an aggressive approach. When Pakistan reached 200 runs in the 36th over, the batsmen began to score runs quickly. Blair Tickner scored 28 runs off 22 balls, including 3 consecutive fours, before falling to the combination of Matt Henry and Tom Blundell. Meanwhile, Babar had completed his century, and the captain added 7 more runs. Cole McConchie was caught trying to play a high stroke off Ben Lester’s ball, and Mohammad Haris hit Matt Henry for a six after scoring 3 fours to take the team’s score to 300. In the last over, Shaheen Shah Afridi hit Blair Techner for a six and scored 22 runs, including a four. Pakistan totaled 334 for 6, with Shaheen Shah Afridi unbeaten on 23 off 7 balls and Mohammad Haris on 17 off 8 balls.

In New Zealand’s innings, Wasim Jr got Will Bang going for 15 with the help of Haris Rauf when the total was 36. The run rate decreased, and Usama Mir turned to Thar Dampier for LBW against Tom Latham but failed. The total was 93 in 20 overs, and Tom Latham was eventually stumped by Salman for 35. Mohammad Rizwan missed a chance, and Daryl Mitchell was dropped by Babar to deny Osama Mir a wicket. However, the spinner caught Daryl Mitchell for 34 in the next attempt, and this time Shaheen Shah Afridi made no mistake in controlling the ball. Mark Chapman was aggressive and scored boundaries in succession, but Shaheen Afridi ended the dangerous partnership with the help of Mohammad Rizwan by sending Chapman back to the pavilion. Usama Mir then stopped the aggression by blowing the bells of Mark Chapman for 46, as New Zealand completed 200 runs. Haris Rauf stopped Jimmy Neesham for 11 by bowling him out. Both bowlers kept the pressure on the next and lower-order batsmen.
