The New Zealand cricketers are 213 for 5 after 41 overs, batting first in the sixth one-dayer against Pakistan, in Auckland.

Jesse Ryder brought up his hundred off 85 balls with the seventh four of his innings, that also included six sixes, but was caught in the 36th over at deep midwicket for 107.

Opener Brendan McCullum was the first wicket to fall for 12, Martin Guptil went for 44 off the bowling of Abdul Razzaq, who also claimed the wicket of Ross Taylor for 5, out though a fine outside edge to the keeper.

James Franklin made 8.

Pakistan have already won the series, 3-1; game two in Queenstown was rained off.
