Williamson showed wonderful reflexes to dive and dismiss Hasan Ali in Dunedin.

Williamson, who has a century already in the five-match series, took time to find his form on a pitch slower than others the teams have played on recently.

Five wickets down at 15, the team barely managed to go past its worst-ever ODI total of 43 (vs West Indies at Cape Town in 1993).

Taylor was able to score more freely than Williamson, perhaps because the conditions favoured the straight-bat shots which are his forte, and reached his 40th ODI half century from 49 balls.

Pakistan rocketed from 141 for seven in the 37th over to make 246 for nine in game two, repeating a pattern that has been all too common in recent seasons where New Zealand have let the score get away on them after a solid start.

New Zealand's winning margin also eclipsed their previous biggest victory over Pakistan, which had been 138 runs at Christchurch in 2001.

Azhar Ali (0) went in the second over, caught at first slip Ross Taylor.

Babar Azam (8) was unlucky when he tried to slide his bat completing a second run, but the bat dug into the ground short of the crease and he was run out.
