Just three days after flying into the United Arab Emirates from paternity leave, Boult became New Zealand's third hat-trick taker in one-day worldwide cricket to spark a 47-run victory over Pakistan in the first ODI. I don't think that's his job, his job is to bat.

The Pakistan innings got off to a disastrous start with Trent Boult taking a hat-trick in his second over.

Pakistan had dominated the first hour of play with Shaheen Afridi and Shadab, both ending up with four wickets, but it was the tail of New Zealand batting that propelled them to a defendable total of 266.

Boult becomes the fifth New Zealander to claim an ODI hat-trick, joining Shane Bond, Emily Drumm, Julie Harris and Danny Morrison.

A 130-run fourth-wicket partnership between Ross Taylor and Tom Latham resurrected the innings before Latham was dismissed for 68 early in the 42nd over.

Well, as we now know, Prince Charles did the honours but it was actually Harry who asked his father to step in. But afterward watching it on the television, I think it was a lovely gesture".

"There's not too many occasions I've been on a hat-trick in a one-day match".

Boult first bowled danger man Fakhar Zaman off his pads, before Babar Azam nicked through to slip and Mohammad Hafeez was trapped in-front, with the home side in a funk at 3/8.

Grandhomme took 2 for 40 while Lockie Ferguson finished with 3 for 36.

Skipper Sarfraz Ahmed (64) and Imad Wasim (50) scored half-centuries.

But Sarfraz, part of the team in the last 11 one-day internationals all of which Pakistan lost, want to finally win against New Zealand.

Wayne Rooney deserves a great England send-off, says Harry Kane
Rooney, a record goalscorer for both Manchester United and England, retired from global football in August 2017. He was a fantastic player for England and it's fine by me if we want to celebrate his achievements.

Latham, who boasts an exceptional record in Asia, joined Taylor at the crease as the duo set about hitting over half of their team's total.

He dismissed Latham leg-before and did the same to Henry Nicholls (nought) the very next ball, before removing De Grandhomme two balls later when he edged to first slip without scoring.

New Zealand will welcome pace spearhead Trent Boult who missed the Twenty20 series due to personal reasons while also adding batsman George Worker and spinner Ajaz Patel (as a cover for injured Todd Astle) in the squad.

"If you look at our losses a lot of them were in New Zealand where conditions were different and we lost due to top order failure where we need to improve", said Sarfraz.

The victory gave New Zealand a 1-0 lead in the three-match series and extended their ODI winning streak against Pakistan to 12 matches dating back to December 2014.
