Right then! That is it from this game and Pakistan have made it two wins in two games. However, the series continues and the next game is just around the corner. The hosts, New Zealand will be taking on Bangladesh on 9th October, Sunday at 11.30 am IST (6.00 am GMT). But join us in advance for the build-up. Till then, goodbye and cheers!
Kane Williamson the skipper of New Zealand says that it wasn't a polished performance from them it was a bit scrappy.  Adds that Pakistan were clinical and it was hard for them to get any sorry of rhythm. Mentions that they needed two big overs for a competitive total. On ending asked about his toss decision, he replies that they did not think it would be so wet and hence he elected to bat first. Adds that Mark Chapman played an outstanding innings. At the same time, Pakistan were outstanding. Further says that they were a bit sloppy in the field but they pride themselves in that area. Ends by saying that they are looking forward to the next game. It's a tough game but the players are feeling good.
Babar Azam the skipper of Pakistan is the Player of the Match. He says that they started well in the batting. Adds that he and Rizwan planned to utilize the Powerplay. Mentions that they sent Shadab Khan up the order to utilize his skills and take charge and that is what he did in this game. Tells that he and Shadab had a chat and the plan for him was to bat till the end and other batters take the risks. Says that the pitch was a little bit different from the first game mainly because of the dew factor and the ball was coming nicely onto the bat.  Adds that he is very happy and this will give the team more confidence. Credits their bowlers for their performance in the Powerplay and in the death as well. Mentions that he is very happy that they did not give away any extra runs and also praises the batters for their performance.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
Earlier in the game, New Zealand won the important toss and chose to bat. However, Kane Williamson's decision backfired as they managed to post only a par total of 147 on a batting-friendly wicket. The bowlers of  Pakistan were expectational and it was them that set the game up for the batters. In reply, Babar Azam's 79 off 53 balls made sure Pakistan gets on top. Back-to-back wins for the Men in Green!
Credit to the Kiwi bowlers though they did well to take the game till the penultimate over. However, the 18th over from Blair Tickner went for 21 runs and that just stole the game from New Zealand. Had they continued to be disciplined the game could have been tighter. Well, can't really blame the bowlers here as they had only a little to fight with.
The Kiwis got off to a positive start as they got rid of the in-form, Mohammad Rizwan and Shan Masood within the Powerplay and put Pakistan under some sort of pressure. However, they failed to capitalize on their momentum and let Pakistan get away with a partnership. Shadab Khan and Babar Azam then started scoring runs freely and took the game away from the hosts. They put on a stand of 61 runs before Shadab Khan perished after a solid knock of 34. Babar Azam stuck around till the end and took Pakistan over the finish line with ease.
The Men in Green have continued their good form from the previous game and have gotten over the line convincingly against the hosts. Two wins in two matches for Pakistan. Whereas the Kiwis have a lot to ponder about before their next game which is not too far away. New Zealand will be disappointed especially with their batting performance.

OUT! TAKEN! Trent Boult gets a wicket on the last ball of his spell and sends Nawaz back to the hut who was struggling in the middle. He bowls this back of a length and on middle, Mohammad Nawaz goes for the heave over mid-wicket but gets a top edge and it goes straight up in the air towards the silly point region. Devon Conway calls for it, covers the ground and completes a nice catch. Pakistan lose their fourth.

Tim Southee bowls this on a good length and around leg, Babar Azam looks to flick it but misses and gets hit o the pads. There is a huge appeal for LBW but turned down. Kane Williamson decides to go for the review. The UltraEdge shows no bat involved and Ball Tracking shows it is missing wickets. It was a review taken more in desperation. New Zealand lose their review and Babar Azam is safe.
