Team Pakistan fared poorly against New Zealand in the first ODI in Abu Dhabi. Such was the dominance of the Kiwis that the Green Shirts were nowhere in the game during any point in the game.
With Pakistan reeling at around 85 runs with 5 wickets down, Shadab was striving to build a partnership with Sarfraz but was wrongly given out on the bowling of Ish Sodhi. Unfortunately, Pakistan's one and only review was consumed by Hafeez and Shadab had to go back to the pavilion in utter dissent.
Moreover, replays after Shadab left the ground suggested that Shadab had not nicked the ball on its way to the wicket-keeper and that there was daylight between the bat and ball as it travelled to the keeper.
