This match reported by The Daily Telegraph Staff (Third Party Reference from The Daily Telegraph)

Pakistan beat New Zealand by 44 runs in Peshawar today in the first one-day international match of the series.

New Zealand failed to master the accurate and penetrative medium-pace bowling of Pakistan's Zakir Khan, and except for wicketkeeper Ian Smith, none of their batsmen could bat with concentration or apply themselves to the task.

Pakistan, after some initial setbacks, amassed 191 runs in 39 overs, thanks to skilful batting by Javed Miandad who remained unbeaten with a polished 80.

The New Zealand attack bowled well, mainly in the first two hours, but after the home team lost five wickets for 123, Javed Miandad, first with Manzoor Elahie and later with Mudassar Nazar, rallied and thus took control.
