New Zealand (NZ) and Pakistan (PAK) clash again in the fourth T20I of their five-match series at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch, on Friday, January 19. Black Caps have already gained a 3-0 series lead after their dominant 45-run win in the previous encounter, and seek to extend their dominance. Pakistan, on the other hand, desperately seeks a victory to avoid a clean sweep.

The third T20I saw New Zealand bat first after Pakistan's decision to field. Fin Allen's explosive century (137 off 62 balls, 5 fours, 16 sixes) powered New Zealand to a mammoth 224-7. Tim Seifert (31 off 23) and Glenn Phillips (19 off 15) provided valuable support, while Haris Rauf endured a forgettable outing with 60 runs conceded in four overs.

In reply, Babar Azam's well-crafted 58 (8 fours, 1 six) was Pakistan's lone bright spot. Mohammad Rizwan (24) and Mohammad Nawaz (28) chipped in briefly, but the remaining batters collapsed, leaving Pakistan at 179/7, with Tim Southee (2-29) the standout bowler. Finn Allen, the hero of the match with his record-breaking knock, received the Player of the Match award.

Meanwhile, let us look at stats and approaching milestones from the fourth T20I between New Zealand and Pakistan:
