Pakistan has once again managed to defend a total here. How good are they at doing this? New Zealand got off to a terrific start in the Powerplay, courtesy Munro. He was hitting the new ball really well and the visitors were 50 for 1 after the first 6. However, they failed to capitalize on the start they got and then began to lose their way.
A strong finish by Pakistan has seen them finish with a total they would be extremely confident of defending. After electing to bat, they did not have a Powerplay to remember as they were 31 for the loss of 2 wickets.
