New Zealand were off to a shaky start in the second day-night one-international being played in National Cricket Stadium in Karachi on Wednesday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Batting first after winning the toss, New Zealand opener Finn Allen was caught by Muhammad Nawaz off the bowling of Naseem Shah after scoring just one.

New Zealand have so far scored 28 runs in first five overs. Skipper Kane Williamson and Devon Conway were at the crease.

Earlier, Kane Williamson won the toss and opted to bat against Pakistan on Wednesday in the second day-night international in Karachi.

Pakistan kept the same team that won the first match by six wickets in Karachi on Monday.

New Zealand brought in leg-spinner Ish Sodhi in place of all-rounder Henry Shipley.

The third and final ODI is on Friday, also in Karachi.
