Black Caps dominated by Pakistan in second ODI

Team management said Imam will undergo CT scans and will be monitored for the next 48 hours.

When he was batting on 16 the first ball of the 13th over from Lockie Ferguson struck grille of his helmet.

His eyes were closed but he did not lose consciousness.

Though dazed throughout his medical examination, Imam seemed interested in carrying on before he began to limp. He joined the team but will remain under observation. He was taken to the hospital in an ambulance.

Pakistan have levelled their ODI series against the Black Caps in Abu Dhabi this morning after some strong bowling was backed up by a stellar opening innings for a six wicket win.

The last match of the series is in Dubai on Sunday.

However, by then the game was already won - the work of Fakhar (88 off 88) and Babar (46 off 50) had already created a comfortable chase, and set up a tantalising decider.

Mohammad Hafeez stayed unbeaten on 27 and raised Pakistan's victory with a crisp boundary off Tim Southee.

Earlier, the Taylor-Nicholls stand lifted New Zealand after Afridi once again rocked the top order following his 4/46 in the first match.

Shaheen dismissed destructive opener Colin Munro in the second over of the innings, holing out to a tough catch by Hafeez.

Neither George Worker (28 off 50 balls) nor Henry Nicholls (33 off 63) looked particularly at ease in their time at the crease, but both batsmen were also put in hard situations as failures from Colin Munro (13) and the duo of Kane Williamson and Tom Latham (one run apiece) put the Black Caps in early strife.

In his next over he deflected a straight drive to run out Kane Williamson (1) at the non-striker's end.

Taylor hit three boundaries and a six for his 43rd half-century in ODIs.

Pakistan's most expensive fast bowler, Hasan Ali (2-59), returned and had Nicholls bowled in the 38th over before Afridi snapped two more wickets to restrict New Zealand.
