Pakistan overcom New Zealand in final T20 match

Pakistan have bowled out New Zealand for just 80 runs to win the 3rd and final Twenty20 international by 103 runs, with Abdul Razzaq taking 3-13 and Shahid Afridi 4-14.

New Zealand lost its first four batsmen for ducks, slumping to 3-4 as Abdul Razzaq damaged through its middle order, giving Pakistan its first win of the three-match series.

At 11-5 after 4.4 overs, New Zealand had the lowest score for the loss of five wickets by any team in the history of Twenty20 internationals.

Scott Styris revived the innings a little with a top score of 45 and was New Zealand’s only batsman to reach double figures.

Earlier, Ahmad Shehzad made 54 and shared an 81-run opening partnership with 81 with Mohammad Hafeez (34) in Pakistan’s 183-6.
