Pakistan defeated New Zealand by five wickets in a thrilling and exciting T20 world cup match in Sharjah. Back-to-back victories for Pakistan in the ongoing ICC T20 Cup 2021’s Super 12 Stage and they are leading the points table in their group.

Though matches between Pakistan and New Zealand have always been thrilling because both are considered one of the top teams in the cricket world, this match was more compelling for both teams. The reason behind this is the withdrawal of the New Zealand tour in Pakistan, which they cancelled at the last moment by giving an excuse for security issues. According to experts playing with New Zealand was more challenging for Pakistan than playing with India. But the Pakistani cricket team accepted this challenge and beat New Zealand the way they deserved to be.

 Pakistan first won the toss and then won the most exciting match of the T20 world cup 2021. In the first innings, New Zealand played well and scored 42 runs by the end of the Powerplay. NZ lost the first wicket by Haris Rauf of Martin Guptill. After ten overs, the Black Caps reached 60/3. It’s where the chances of Pakistan’s win increased. After 15 overs Hafeez and Imad showed their performance and drew out two other players of the NZ team. Haris Rauf with the ball and Asif Ali with the bat are both reasons behind this tremendous victory.

Pakistan has defeated the two most prominent and strong teams of the world (India and New Zealand), and the nation is hoping that green caps will surely bring this world cup to Pakistan.
