WELLINGTON, Jan 19: New Zealand inflicted a rare 5-0 One-day International series whitewash over Pakistan today with a 15-run win at Wellington�s Basin Reserve.

A century by Martin Guptill helped the Black Caps set a 272 total that proved too much for Pakistan after Matt Henry tore through their top order.

Pakistan were all out for 256 with one over remaining.

It is only the third time Pakistan have been on the wrong end of a 5-0 ODI clean sweep after they succumbed by the same margin to Australia in 2010 and the West Indies in 1988.

New Zealand have won by a 5-0 margin only once before, when they hosted the West Indies in 2000.

The result extends New Zealand�s winning streak in all forms of the game to 12 matches, a record for the team, and means they are undefeated at home since March last year.

Pakistan captain said his side, particularly the batsmen, had failed to take their chances.

�The main thing is the batting has not clicked throughout the whole series, that�s why we lost,� he said.

�The bowling unit was very good sometimes. We had opportunities but we didn�t grab them.�

The target should have been achievable, given the short boundaries at the Basin Reserve, but speedster Matt Henry ensured Pakistan made a disastrous start.
