Highlight Story

Ahmed Shehzad hit his maiden one-day international century to guide Pakistan to a 41-run win over New Zealand in the 5th one-day international, clinching victory in the six-match series.

Shehzad made 115 from 104 balls as Pakistan posted 268-9 in its 50 overs after being sent in to bat on a slow pitch.

New Zealand's stand-in captain Ross Taylor top-scored with 69 and Martin Guptill made 65 as New Zealand was dismissed for 227 in 46.5 overs in a bungled run chase.

Pakistan has an unbeatable 3-1 lead with one match to play.
