The weather unexpectedly had the final say in Dubai as the BLACKCAPS and Pakistan were forced to share an evenly-fought ODI series 1-all.
Chasing 280 for victory in the third ODI, George Worker (18*) and Henry Nicholls (15*) had the visitors 35-1 after 6.5 overs when the rain came.
The teams now relocate to Abu Dhabi to begin preparations for the Test series which begins on Friday.
