Big-hitting Colin de Grandhomme blasted New Zealand to a five-wicket win over Pakistan in the fourth one-day international in Hamilton yesterday.

De Grandhomme bludgeoned the Pakistan attack with an unbeaten 74 off 40 balls to reinvigorate New Zealand's run chase as the hosts struggled to reach a 263-run target.
"Everything just seemed to be hitting the middle tonight," said de Grandhomme, whose innings included five sixes and seven fours.
The result puts New Zealand up 4-0 in the five-match series and sets a new record for the Black Caps of 11 consecutive international victories.

The streak includes convincing wins over the West Indies in all formats of the game and keeps alive the prospects of an ODI series whitewash against Pakistan in Wellington on Friday.

Scores
Pakistan: 262 for 8 (Hafeez 81*, Zaman 54, Sarfraz 51, Sohail 50)
New Zealand: 263 for 5 (De Grandhomme 74*, Munro 56, Nicholls 52*; Shadab 3-42)
