Pakistan's T20 juggernaut races to 11th successive series win after crushing New Zealand

 

Pakistan lived up to their billing as the world’s best Twenty20 team with a six-wicket victory over New Zealand in Dubai on Friday to clinch the three-match series 2-0.

Mohammad Hafeez (34 not out) and Shoaib Malik (ten) added 34 quickfire runs to help Pakistan overhaul the 154-run target in 19.4 overs at Dubai stadium, pocketing their 11th consecutive series and eighth successive T20 match.

New Zealand were lifted to 153-7 by Corey Anderson and Colin Munro who made 44 each after Kane Williamson won the toss and opted to bat on a slow-paced pitch.

Pakistan won the first match by two runs in a last-ball finish in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

Hafeez, who hit Adam Milne for the winning boundary, and Malik came together with 50 needed off the last five overs. Hafeez hit two towering sixes off leg-spinner Ish Sodhi in the 17th over to bring the target down to 23 in the last three overs.

Hafeez hit two sixes and a boundary in his 21-ball innings.

Since Sarfraz Ahmed took over as captain in September 2016, Pakistan have beaten England (1-0), West Indies (3-0 and 3-1), a World XI (2-1), Sri Lanka (3-0), New Zealand (2-1), West Indies (3-0), Scotland (2-0) and Australia (3-0).

They also won a tri-series against Zimbabwe and Australia this year.

Babar Azam (40), Asif Ali (38) and Fakhar Zaman 924) also chipped in with useful runs.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed described the win as a team effort “It’s down to the effort of the players,” said Sarfraz. “We have a good balance, with Hasan Ali at 10. We know we can get 150-160. So if we start well and if we don’t let too many dot balls in the middle, we have the experience of Hafeez and Malik as well.”

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson gave credit to Pakistan. “Credit to the way Pakistan played. They have a clear pattern of play which they’ve executed here in the UAE,” said Williamson. “I thought the first half was clinical from us. Got a good score on the board. It’s a game of really small margins.” Earlier, New Zealand were again derailed in the middle overs.

Munro, who has the best strike rate of 163 amongst current Twenty20 players, lifted spinner Imad Wasim for six off the very first ball of the match as New Zealand raced to 50 without loss in just 5.3 overs.

But just like the first match their innings fell apart once Glenn Phillips (five) and Munro departed in the seventh over as Pakistan’s bowlers, led by pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi, pulled back the scoring rate.

Munro hit four boundaries and two sixes off 28 balls before he was stumped off spinner Hafeez as his miscued shot trickled behind the stumps to Sarfraz who claimed a stumping with the batsman out of his crease.

Colin de Grandhomme (four) and Ross Taylor (three) fell in quick succession before Williamson (37) and Anderson added 42 for the fifth wicket.

Anderson hoisted Hasan Ali for two boundaries and a six in the 17th over to help New Zealand add 52 in the last five overs.

Shaheen finished with brilliant figures of 3-20 in his four overs.
