Hosts won the second match of the two-match series playing in Hamilton after the visitors, chasing a stiff target of 369 to level the series, were bowled out for 230 in the last session of the play.

For visitors, the day started on a positive note as openers Sami Aslam and captain Azhar Ali put 131 runs for the first wicket.

Azhar departed in the second session of the day on the bowling of left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner after scoring 58 off 161 balls.

Sami on the other hand, departed after a hard-fought 91 off 238 balls in the last session when the visitors decided to show some intent of chasing down what would be the highest target chased in the country in five-day format.

The Green Caps batting lineup once again collapsed, this time in the last hour of the play, as they lost their last seven wickets for just 31 runs in over 15 overs.

For Black Caps, left-arm pacer Neil Wagner picked three, whereas experienced Tim Southee and Santner picked two wickets each.

Southee for his brilliant bowling performance in the match, was awarded man of the match.
