Pakistan has beaten New Zealand by five wickets in the 19th match of the T20 World Cup Super-12 stage played at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

Pakistan won the toss and chose to field.

New Zealand batting first posted a total of 134/8. Black Caps skipper Kane Williamson (scored 25 off 26 balls), Daryl Mitchell (scored 27 off 20 balls), and Devon Conway (27 off 24 balls) were the top scorer of the innings.

While Pakistan was pretty impressive at the field and with the ball as well.

Chasing 135, Pakistan at one point in the run chase seemed to be losing grip on the game. Pakistan was 87-5 in the 15th over and then came the master class performance by Malik and Asif.

Together they posted an unbeaten 48-run partnership and glided Pakistan towards a 5 wicket victory.

The late blitz from Asif Ali and Shoaib Malik helped Pakistan continue their momentum to clinch the victory.
