New Zealand have made it two wins from two games at their tri-nations under 19 cricket tournament in Dubai.

Having beaten Australia, New Zealand eased past Pakistan, winning by three wickets with 14 balls to spare today.

Pakistan made 255 for nine, with Nelson legspinner Felix Murray taking five for 55 and his Central Districts teammate Josh Clarkson two for 24.

Openers Rachin Ravindra and Glenn Phillips then shared a 99-run opening stand before Auckland player Phillips was out for 74 off 68 balls.


A further 85 were put on by Ravindra and captain Josh Finnie and despite a steady fall of wickets, Christian Leopard, with 19 not out off 12 balls, ensured the win.

New Zealand now play Australia on Sunday and finish the tournament against Pakistan next Tuesday.

New Zealand are preparing for the world under 19 tournament in Bangladesh.
