Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Afridi struck New Zealand for the third time as he took out Tom Latham in the 13th over of the World Cup clash at Edgbaston on Wednesday.

New Zealand were 46 for the loss of 4 wickets in 13 overs as their top order crumbled before Pakistani bowlers.

Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed dove to his right to take and impressive one-handed catch to dismiss Taylor. New Zealand were 38 for 3 when Tom Latham joined his captain Kane Williamson on the crease.

It was Afridi's second wicket of the match, who dismissed New Zealand opener Colin Munro two overs ago.

Haris Sohail successfully held on to the ball at first slip after Munro tried to drive a slightly wide delivery by Afridi.

New Zealand were 24 for the loss of two wickets in seven overs.

Pakistan got off to a good start after fast bowler Mohammad Amir bowled out New Zealand opener Martin Guptill in the second over.

It was the fast-bowler's first ball of the match. The first over was bowled by all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez.

Kiwis were 22 for the loss of one wicket by the end of the fifth over.
