In Short
Trent Boult became the fifth New Zealander to claim an ODI hat-trick in the BLACKCAPS first ODI against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi.

Boult struck in just the third over of the innings, removing Pakistanโ€™s three key batsmen in Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam and Mohammad Hafeez in successive deliveries.

The hat-trick played a key role in the match, swinging momentum in favour of New Zealand early in Pakistan's chase.

They were three quality pieces of cricket too. The left-armer had the ball to swinging and first clean bowed Zaman, then had Azam caught by Ross Taylor at a wide slip, before finishing the triple strike by trapping Hafeez LBW.

Boult joins Shane Bond, Emily Drumm, Julie Harris and Danny Morrison in the exclusive club of Kiwis and becomes the 46th male player in history to claim a men's ODI hat-trick.
