New Zealand gave a low target of 91 runs, and Pakistan’s pacers’ attack and spin department did an incredible job today in the second T20.

Amid 91 runs, Pakistan was handed a blow in the first over as opener Saim Ayub got out on the second ball of the innings scoring just four runs.

Babar Azam and Rizwan took the field after Ayub’s dismissal but the skipper too followed the youngster in the fifth over after contributing just 14 runs as he fell prey to Michael Bracewell.

Usman Khan, who chose to play for Pakistan against the UAE, was clean-bowled by Ish Sodhi for just seven runs after Babar was removed from the game. But Rizwan and Irfan Khan Niazi led the home team to win, and that was the last wicket the Green Shirts lost.

A 36-run stand was recorded by the two batters. Rizwan finished his inning with 45 runs, while Niazi scored 18 runs.

With the first Twenty20 International postponed due to weather, the Green Shirts now hold a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.
