During Pakistan’s tour of New Zealand NZ vs PAK in 2023, the teams are scheduled to play each other in the second Twenty20 International (T20I) at Seddon Park, Hamilton, in a much awaited match of the T20I series. New Zealand is the host nation for this three-match T20I series, which they are presently leading 1-0. Defending champion New Zealand won the first match by a comfortable 46 runs.

After winning the toss, Pakistan chose to bowl first, and the top order in New Zealand presented a serious threat. Devon Conway, a vital hitter for the hosts, was bowled for a duck by the crafty Shaheen Afridi. Before Abbas Afridi got Allen out of the game, Finn Allen and Kane Williamson had a significant 49-run partnership. Williamson, the batting virtuoso, and Daryl Mitchell combined for 78 runs as they both contributed. Pakistan achieved a major breakthrough when Abbas Afridi dismissed Williamson once more. With the loss of eight wickets in their allocated 20 overs, New Zealand amassed a formidable 226 runs thanks to Mitchell’s noteworthy 61-run contribution. Important wickets for Pakistan were secured in large part because to the contributions of Shaheen and Abbas Afridi.

In response, Pakistan’s openers, Saim Ayub and Mohammad Rizwan, established a 33-run partnership before Ayub was run out by Adam Milne. The battle was continued by Rizwan and Babar Azam, who brought the total runs to thirty more. But a good alliance ended when Tim Southee’s delivery resulted in Rizwan’s departure. Despite scoring a half-century and displaying class, Ben Sears eventually dismissed Babar Azam. Regretfully, the remaining batters struggled, which resulted in back-to-back outs. In the end, Pakistan was all out for 180 runs in just 18 overs. Important wickets were secured for New Zealand thanks in large part to Tim Southee and Adam Milne.
