Cricket: Afridi sinks New Zealand

Pakistan vs.. New Zealand 1st ODI cricket match
 
Shahid Afridi's aggression gave Pakistan an easy 138 run win over New Zealand in the 1st day-night ODI Cool & Cool Cup played at Zayed Cricket Stadium at Abu Dhabi.
 
Afridi hit a 50 ball 71 and also grabbed 2 wickets and helped Pakistan overcome New Zealand.
 
Though New Zealand started the match promisingly they lost control over the match once Afridi came in to bat. Shahid Afridi partnered with Khalid Latif and then with Kamran Akmal and helped Pakistan post a imposing 287 for 9.
 
In reply, New Zealand succumbed for 149 in the 40th over.
 
Pakistan now has 1-0 lead in this 3 match ODI series. The other 2 matches will be played at the Zayed Stadium on November 7 and on November 10.
