Ul-Haq before he slumps to the floor. Moments later, he was lying down with his eyes closed, although he did not lose consciousness.

However, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) later said that scans had shown that the player had suffered no damage.

Veteran batsman Ross Taylor top-scored with a laborious 120-ball 86 not out and added 75 for the fifth wicket with Henry Nicholls, who made a snail-paced 33 off 63 balls.

But Pakistan were in such a dominant position that there was no danger of them losing the match and they edged across the winning line with six wickets and nine and a half overs to spare.

New Zealand won the first mach by 47 runs, also in Abu Dhabi and therefore the decider will be played in Dubai on Sunday.

The opener wanted to continue with bat, but it appeared hard as he hobbled briefly from a stationary position after batting partner Fakhar Zaman and New Zealand captain Kane Williamson checked on him. "It wasn't enough on that surface". The dazed Imam went off in the ambulance for a concussion check, but that only brought the prodigious Babar Azam to the wicket, and he teamed up with Fakhar Zaman to punish the Black Caps bowlers.

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

In the second over, Shaheen Afridi got an important wicket when Colin Munro skied one in the air and Muhammad Hafeez took a good running catch.

That came after captain Kane Williamson's luck ran out early in his innings when he was dismissed for just one run due to a deflected drive into his stumps for a rare run out. Taylor, who made 80 in the first game, held one end intact and together with Nicholls ensured the innings did not finish under 200.

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.

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