Pakistan crushed New Zealand by 48 runs in the second T20 in Auckland yesterday to notch their first victory of the tour over the Black Caps. The tourists finally found form with both bat and ball to level the three-match T20 series after a humiliating losing streak that included a 5-0 ODI series whitewash.
They set an imposing target of 202 after winning the toss, with half centuries for Babar Azam (50 not out) and Fakhar Zaman (50). In response, New Zealand crumbled to 64-6 under a combination of tight bowling and commitment in the field from Pakistan.
