From the onset, Pakistan asserted their authority as they opted to field first after winning the toss. New Zealand’s batting lineup faltered under the pressure of Pakistan’s bowling attack, especially the new ball spells by Ubaid Shah. Shah’s impeccable bowling, coupled with the spin wizardry of the Pakistani spinners, restricted New Zealand to a below-par total of 140 runs in 38 overs.

Chasing a modest target, Pakistan’s opening pair of Shahzab and Shamyl exhibited patience and calculated aggression. Both batsmen displayed remarkable maturity as they navigated through the initial overs before unleashing an array of strokes.

Shahzab, in particular, showcased his skills with a splendid half-century, well-supported by Shamyl’s composed innings. The Kiwi bowlers found no respite as Pakistan effortlessly chased down the target, reaching 144 runs without losing a single wicket in just 25.2 overs.
