Rain stops Pakistan-New Zealand ODI in Dubai

Dubai: Heavy rain interrupted the third one-day international as New Zealand were chasing a daunting 280-run target set by Pakistan in Dubai on Sunday.

New Zealand were 35-1 after 6.5 overs when the umpires signalled for a stoppage in play after light rain turned into heavy showers.

Pakistan scored 279-8 after they won the toss and batted, with Babar Azam (92), Fakhar Zaman (65) and Haris Sohail (60) making useful contributions.

The three-match series is tied at 1-1 after New Zealand won the first match by 47 runs and Pakistan clinched the second by six wickets — both in Abu Dhabi.
