Stand-in White Ferns skipper Amy Satterthwaite has compiled her third century in as many one-day internationals as New Zealand cruised to a five-wicket win over Pakistan at Saxton Oval in Nelson.

Satterthwaite's 123 off 99 balls anchored the White Ferns to 223-5 in 38.3 overs as they comfortably chased down Pakistan's 220 all out.

The 30-year-old opener belted 18 fours in her two-hour innings as the New Zealanders completed a 5-0 series whitewash.

Satterthwaite's ton is the fifth in her 10-year career, and follows on from unbeaten knocks of 115 in the second ODI against Pakistan, and 137 in the third.

She wasn't required to bat in the fourth match, and has scored 393 runs from her four innings to top the series averages with 196.50.

Half-centuries from opener Ayesha Zafar and first drop Javeria Khan set up Pakistan's 220 after skipper Sana Mir won the toss.

Zafar and Nahida Khan put on 84 for the first wicket, the biggest partnership of Pakistan's innings, before Khan was removed for 31 late in the 20th over by Thamsyn Newton.

The 21-year-old allrounder went on to collect her first five-wicket haul, ending with figures of 5-31 off eight overs.

Young Wellington legspinner Amelia Kerr wasn't far behind, finishing with 4-42 from 9.5 overs.

In just her third ODI for New Zealand, the 16-year-old also proved sharp in the field, snaffling three catches off the bowling of Newton as Pakistan were bowled out in 49.5 overs.
