New Zealand vs Pakistan: On Tuesday, December 05, 2023, New Zealand will lock horns with Pakistan in the 2nd T20I of the three-match series. The fixture will be hosted at University Oval, Dunedin. New Zealand needed to win this match to keep the series alive. The game is expected to be a highly anticipated cricketing showdown as Pakistan has already stunned NZ in the 1st T20I.

New Zealand have suffered a shocking loss against Pakistan in the 1st T20I. The star-studded NZ’s batting department failed to put up a big total in the last match. The team only managed  to put on a target of 127-6 in 20 overs. The start was very slow for New Zealand and the top order never really got going.

Maddy Green managed to score 45 runs but she failed to find an apt partner to take her team to a fightable total. As a result they failed to get off the blocks and get a big total and finished on the losing side. The team will hope to find the momentum and make a comeback in the 2nd T20I to keep the three match series alive by leveling it 1-1.

Pakistan will be thrilled after a resounding victory in the 1st T20I but they will be conscious of the fact that New Zealand will come back hard at them in the remaining fixtures. Pakistan defeated NZ by seven wickets in the previous game and capitalized on the opportunity of beating New Zealand for the first time in T20Is.

Pakistan opener Shawaal Zulfiqar scored 41 runs and set the platform for a successful chase. Besides her, Nida Dar struck 23 off 14 balls to seal the deal in favor of her team. The Pakistan side is high on confidence after a rare away win and will be on their toes as they have a golden opportunity to register a historic series win in New Zealand.
