The home side scored an imposing 369 for five, when they batted first at McLean Park.

Kane Williamson continued his golden run of form with his sixth one day international century.

He also combined in a 128-run partnership with Martin Guptill.

The New Zealand bowlers shared the wickets as they dismissed Pakistan for 250, with more than six overs to spare.

Southee, Milne, McCullum and Elliott took two wickets each.

The other two went to Boult and Vettori.

The match is the last official game both sides will play before the upcoming World Cup.

Black Caps innings

The Black Caps made 369 for five after winning the toss and choosing to bat on a very friendly wicket at McLean Park.

It's the highest score for the country against Pakistan in one-dayers.

Williamson returned from injury to make 112 from 88 balls - while Ross Taylor smashed 102 off just 70 in his 150th one day match.

It's New Zealand's 100th ODI hundred.

Opening batsman Martin Guptill went for a welcome 76 off 87, while Brendon McCullum was bowled for 31 off 27, and all-rounder Grant Elliott hit 28.

Williamson returns as one of three changes.

Tim Southee replaces fellow fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan, Williamson returns from injury, replacing Tom Latham, and Nathan McCullum is the second full-time spinner with Daniel Vettori, with veteran paceman Kyle Mills missing out.
