Who would have predicted that: Shoaib Akhtar 6/16 terrorises New Zealand with his best-ever ODI figures
New Zealand were already on the back foot arriving in Pakistan in 2002 in the absence of four of their main players including skipper Stephen Fleming. They were never given a big chance of winning in the unfamiliar subcontinental conditions but that they would start their tour on such a hapless note was hardly expected.
Pakistan 275/6 (50 overs) - Mohammad Yousuf 125 (155), Younis Khan 69 (81); Daryl Tuffey 2/24 (6), Ian Butler 2/49 (7)
New Zealand 122 (30 overs) - Nathan Astle 25 (27), Matt Horne 22 (34); Shoaib Akhtar 6/16 (9), Saqlain Mushtaq 1/22 (4)
Result - Pakistan won by 153 runs
