Daryl Mitchell's power-hitting was on full display too, as he contributed 61 in just 27 balls, helpinh the team notch up a formidable total of 226/8 in 20 overs. Shaheen and Abbas Afridi took threee wickets each whereas nd Haris Rauf claimed two. 

While chasing the target, Saim Ayub and Mohammad Rizwan provided quick starts but they failed to convert. Babar Azam also scored a half-century with 57 runs in 35 balls. However, their efforts fell short and Pakistan lost the match by 46 runs as Tim Southee took four wickets, reaching the milestone of 150 wickets in T20Is.
