The second T20I between New Zealand and Pakistan is set to take place at the Seddon Park in Hamilton on January 14 (Sunday). The hosts are currently leading the series 1-0 after playing superbly in the first game at the Eden Park in Auckland. They posted mammoth total of 226 runs on the board and then restricted Pakistan to just 180 runs to pocket the encounter by 46 runs. Kane Williamson smashed a fifty on his comeback while Daryl Mitchell showed off his hitting abilities as well scoring 61 runs.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's tough tour to Trans-Tasman nations continued and Shaheen Afridi's captaincy stint didn't start on a good note. However, Babar Azam scoring a half-century at a strike-rate of over 160 batting at number three must have come as a relief for them. Moreover, Saim Ayub's aggressive intent was also another positive for the visitors. They will be itching to level the series in Hamilton. Let us know more about the pitch at the Seddon Park.
