Sophie Devine collects the trophy and now pose with their team mates for the photographs. They are the series winners. Although they lost in a super over today. They win the series 2-1. 
Fatima Sana (Pakistan Women Captain): "All credit goes to our team. The girls played really well. Yeah, In my captainship, this was the first super over but they played a super over in Bangladesh also. Yeah, she (Aliya) is our power hitter so we told her to face the first ball of the super over."
Sophie Devine (New Zealand Women Captain): "Yes, probably sums up the 50-over game. Ebbs and flows. Pakistan deserve the win. They have been fantastic throughout the series. The fielding let us down a bit. I think with the bat, we gave away a few wickets and that cost us. In the field, we have been timid and that cost us. We need to be brave. Pakistan played better than us and deserve the win. We need to reflect on where we went wrong and hope to come back stronger. We have been tested at home and that is the main thing for us. Hope to come back stronger."   
Player of the Series: Amelia Kerr. 
Bismah Maroof (Player of the Match): "First of all, I would like to thank Allah for the win today and the support I got from the teammates. I think my feelings for them, they have supported me in my bad patch.

I was not feeling well before in this series. Didn't play well, but the confidence I got from my teammates, I think credit to them. We were just trying to play simple and play to the basics and just build the partnership. I think that later on, our tailenders played really well and finished the game."

1:53PM IST, 9:23 PM Local Time: What a game we have witnessed at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch. The game ended in a tie as both teams could not be separated after 100 overs. In the end, we went into the Super Over and Pakistan Women held their nerves to win the game via the Super Over and win in New Zealand for the first time ever.  Pakistan creates history as they sign off from what has been a good series for them. They won the T20I series and fought well in the ODIS to go down 1-2.  

Let's recap you how this match panned out from the start. It was New Zealand captain Sophie Devine who won the toss and elected to bat first. Isabella Gaze at the top of the order struggled as she was run out early. Suzie Bates laboured her way to 24 off 40 balls. Skipper Sophie Devine got a start and scored 29 off 32 balls. But it was Amelia Kerr who shone through and scored 77 off 87 balls. Maddy Green stayed till the end and scored a valuable unbeaten 65* off 69 balls. Hannah Rowe scored 11 while Jess Kerr scored 19 off 15 balls. 9 extras given by Pakistan as New Zealand ended with 251/8 in 50 overs. 

From Pakistan's bowling point of view, a couple of wickets apiece for Nashra Sandhu and Ghulam Fatima while Hani picked up a wicket as well. Despite going wicketless, Sadia Iqbal went for only 31 runs in her 10 overs while skipper Fatima Sana went for 49 runs in 10 overs and went wicketless. 

In reply, Pakistan Women lost Muneeba Ali early. Sidra Ameen looked good for her 24 off 22 balls before throwing it away. But it was Bismah Maroof who held the innings together with her 68 off 86 balls. Aliya Riaz supported her well with her 44 off 84 balls. Skipper Fatima Sana scored a valuable 36 off 33 balls down the order. Natalia Pervaiz scored 26 off 23 balls while Najiha Alvi's 23 off 26 balls took the game to the Super Over. 19 extras given by New Zealand Women as Pakistan finished with 251/9 in 50 overs as the match was tied. 

From New Zealand Women's point of view, Lea Tahuhu picked up 2/30 in 9 overs while Amelia Kerr picked up a couple of wickets for 54 runs in 10 overs. A wicket apiece for Jess Kerr, Hannah Rowe, and Fran Jonas. What a game it was as neither team could be separated. 

Then we went into the Super Over in which Pakistan scored 11 runs and New Zealand in reply could muster only 8 runs for 2 wickets with both Amelia Kerr and Sophie Devine falling as Pakistan held on to create history for themselves getting their first ODI win on New Zealand soil. 

So, Pakistan win a humdinger of a clash via the super over and makes sure they finish the tour on a high. The White Ferns win the ODI series 2-1. Stay tuned for the presentations.

W WICKET! IN THE AIR AND TAKEN! Pakistan win. Sadia holds her nerve. Tosses it up with a bit of air, Devine goes for the big one and gets the height but not the distance. Aliya Riaz under pressure settles underneath it and takes the catch. Devine falls short as Pakistan win the game via a super over to go down in the series 1-2. 
Devine power. 💪 New Zealand need 4 runs in the last 2 balls.

6 SIX! Sophie Devine keeps her side in the game. Tosses it up, Devine comes down the track and lofts it away over deep midwicket as the ball sails into the stands for the maximum.
