Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik, who took a nasty blow on head in unusual circumstances in the fourth one-day global (ODI) against New Zealand at Hamilton's Seddon Park, will miss next three matches against the host.

Guptill and Colin Munro gave the hosts a flying start before Rumman Raees helped spark a mini-collapse that put the brakes on New Zealand's scoring.

Matt Henry has been injected into a New Zealand team chasing a clean sweep in the one-day series against Pakistan.

The Black Caps will be aiming to complete a series whitewash while Pakistan will try to come back in series.

Guptill, who scored 310 runs in the series, was named man of the match and player of the series.

The 26-year-old from Blenheim, who has played six one-day internationals for New Zealand, has an overall T20 record of 47 wickets from 35 games.

The Black caps celebrate taking the wicket of Chris Gayle.

Pakistan's top order crumbled in reply to New Zealand's 271-7 but the tourists rallied to lose by only 15 runs in a nail-biting finish at Basin Reserve in Wellington.

Haris Sohail and the impressive Shadab Khan combined to add 105 for the sixth wicket and there were some anxious moments, but Mitchell Santner kept his cool to remove both in successive overs.

Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson will not play in the first match, with Boult also missing the final ODI.

Guptill and his mate Ross Taylor (59 off 73) set it up with a 112 third wicket stand. Guptill's first half-century took 63 balls and his second 62 as he paced the innings nicely, determined to reach his first ODI century in 12 innings since that remarkable 180 against South Africa last March.
