Pakistan will be playing last game of the tour of New Zealand

Azhar Ali feels that they can level the ODI series against hosts

The captain of Pakistan's One-Day International (ODI) team Azhar Ali has said that they would be looking to level the series against New Zealand and end the tour on the higher note as they will be playing last game in Auckland where they have good record.

Azhar Ali said that they have got the ability to pick up 10 wickets of the opposition and they were not able to do that in the first game which costed them a lot and New Zealand scored 71 runs in last 5 overs, which took the game away from Pakistan's grip.

New Zealand were 99/6 at one stage as Pakistani bowlers Muhammad Amir, Muhammad Irfan and Anwar Ali were in hot form but Azhar Ali brought Imad Wasim and himself on to bowl some quick overs as they were far behind the given over rate.

But it costed them and New Zealand scored 280 runs. Azhar said that they would chase the total as well and were going good at one stage but then their batsmen lost the plot and after Babar Azam and Muhammad Hafeez others could not resist against hosts.

The second game was abandoned due to rain which gave Pakistan some time to adjust and get settled, as Shoaib Malik and Muhammad Amir are fit once again. Azhar also said that they are not looking to make any changes in the batting order when he was asked about Sarfraz getting promoted in the order.
