New Zealand beat Pakistan by 21 runs in the second T20I of the five-match series on Sunday, January 14 at Seddon Park, Hamilton to take a 2-0 lead in the series. Apart from the riveting cricketing action during the game, a hilarious moment was also witnessed as a fan ran away with the ball after Fakhar Zaman launched it out of the stadium in the sixth over of the second innings.

On the last ball of the over, Zaman smacked Ben Sears for a massive six over deep backward square leg. The ball cleared the stadium quite comfortably and landed on the road outside where a fan picked it up and ran away with it. The moment left even the commentators into splits and a new ball was brought in to continue the play.
