1st Wicket: Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson, 171*:
Pakistan had asked New Zealand to chase 171 in the 2nd T20I at the Seddon Park, Hamilton after being beaten in the first match quite comprehensively which isn’t something the Kiwis are used to, they came back harder at the visitors. Openers Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson unleashed against the Pakistan bowlers and they had absolutely no answer or questions to ask to the duo who flew away with the match and ran through inside 18 overs. The 171-run partnership they stitched is the best opening partnership and the best in T20Is.
