Three half-centuries including a late charge by Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan went in vain as New Zealand hunted down D/L revised target of 151 with seven balls to spare in the second one-day international in Nelson on Tuesday.

Fifties by Mohammad Hafeez, Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan carried Pakistan to 246 for nine batting first against New Zealand.

However, rain interrupted the match, reducing the second inning to 25 overs and revising down the target to 151.

Martin Guptill stayed not out at 86 and Ross Taylor at 45.

Mohammad Amir had Colin Munro caught in the deep for duck. Faheem Ashraf extinguished skipper Kane Williamson’s inning at 19 before rain stopped the match.

Earlier, Mohammad Hafeez hit a solid 60, the 33rd ODI half-century for the veteran right-hander as he held the first half of the innings together.
