Pakistan vs New Zealand LIVE Score, T20 World Cup PAK vs NZ Live Updates

PAK vs NZ Live Hello and welcome to the Live blog of the Pakistan vs New Zealand Super 12 clash from Sharjah. This is your host Aditya Kunal Halder, who will be taking you through the minute-to-minute update of the match. Our Live coverage will begin with the toss, scheduled at 7 PM IST, do tune in!

Pakistan 135/5 in 18.4 overs Asif Ali (27*) and Shoaib Malik (26*) help Pakistan cross the finishing line with eight balls to spare in the match. After seeing two dots in the over, Ali shot Boult for a six and then took a double to seal the win.

Pakistan 126/5 in 18 overs Another big over for Pakistan with 15 runs off it and that should seal the match. Pak now need 9 runs to win in 12 balls. 

Pakistan 111/5 in 17 overs A big over for Pakistan with Asif Ali clobbering Tim Southee for two consecutive sixes. Southee should be credited for doing some damage control by bowling three dots after the bombardment. 

Pakistan 98/5 in 16 overs Pakistan loses Imad Wasim (11) right after the batter took an aggressive stance by hitting Trent Boult for a boundary. Shoaib Malik keeps Pakistan in hunt as 37 runs are needed off remaining 24 balls.  

Pakistan 83/4 in 14 overs Pakistan batting suffered two further setbacks with Mitchell Santner removing veteran Mohammad Hafeez (11) while Ish Sodhi picked his second wicket of the night in big fish Mohammad Rizwan (33). With Shoaib Malik and Imad Wasim on the crease, Pakistan need to chase 53 runs off 36 balls.

Pakistan 47/2 in 9 overs Pakistan are really struggling to chase down the total with no dew to help them out this time. Last-match hero Babar Azam fell early after scoring just 9 runs while Zaman scored just 11 before getting trapped lbw by Ish Sodhi in the ninth over.

Pakistan bowlers deserve all the credit for putting another impressive show after the massive win over India two days ago. Haris Rauf did the star turn this time with a spell of 4/22 while Devon Conway and Daryl Mitchell (27 each) top-scored for New Zealand. Kane Williamson also contributed a healthy 25 after openers Mitchell and Martin Guptill (17) provided a good start to the Kiwis. The innings still belonged to Pak pacer as Saheen Afridi, Imad Wasim and Mohammad Hafeez picked wicket a piece. Do tune in for Pakistan chase in 10 minutes time.

New Zealand 134/8 in 20 overs OUT! Rauf picks his fourth and final wicket of the night in Mitchell Santner 6 (5b 1x4 0x6) to restrict New Zealand at 134/8.

New Zealand 125/7 in 19 overs OUT! Afridi dismisses Tim Seifert 8 (8b 1x4 0x6) off the last ball of the over to pick his first wicket of the night. Just six runs came off the penultimate over including a boundary just before the wicket.

New Zealand 119/6 in 18 overs Rauf completes a brilliant over with two wickets and three runs off it. More importantly, he has now three wickets for 14 runs and has an over left for more.

New Zealand 116/6 in 17.3 overs OUT! Glenn Phillips 13 (15b 1x4 0x6) is gone as well! The right-handed batter was smart enough to pick up a slow delivery by the pacer but lacked the power to clear the deep boundary. New Zealand tail is for Pakistan's taking now. 

New Zealand 116/5 in 17.1 overs OUT! Rauf returns to the bowling attack to take the big wicket of Conway 27 (24b 3x4 0x6) at the beginning of the 18th over. The southpaw took an aerial route but never got enough elevation clear the deep boundary.

New Zealand 116/4 in 17 overs Conway and Phillips are slowly building the partnership for a final assault in the death overs. Three overs to go! 150 seems likely if Conway stays till the end.

New Zealand 95/4 in 13.1 overs Glenn Phillips joins Conway in the middle. Conway will be the key if Kiwis want to reach a big total.

New Zealand 90/4 in 13.1 overs OUT! Tragedy strikes the Kiwis! Williamson is out of a direct hit by Hasan Ali, who was quick enough to react of his bowling run-up to run out the Black Caps skipper at 25 (26b 2x4 1x6). 

New Zealand 90/3 in 13 overs Devon Conway joins the party with three consecutive boundaries off Shadab Khan; a productive over for New Zealand with 15 runs off it. 

New Zealand 75/3 in 12 overs Williamson is looking eager to play a captain's knock. The right-hander shot Hafeez for a six, followed by a boundary to fetch 12 runs off the over.

New Zealand 63/3 in 11 overs Runs have dried up for New Zealand after the top-order collapse; just seven runs came off the two overs by Hafeez and Shadab Khan.

New Zealand 56/3 in 9.1 overs OUT! You can officially call this a top-order batting collapse as Mohammad Hafeez dismisses Jimmy Neesham 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) of his very first ball of the night. Williamson is shaking his head at the other end, probably not in agreement with Neesham's shot selection as the batter failed to clear the midwicket boundary.

New Zealand 54/2 in 8.2 overs Daryl Mitchell recklessly throws away his wicket after hitting a six off the first ball of the over. Imad Wasim, bowling his last over of the night, had the right-handed Kiwi opener taken at long-on.

New Zealand 48/1 in 8 overs A tidy opening over by Shadab Khan, just three runs came off it.

New Zealand 45/1 in 7 overs The wicket expectedly brought down the run rate as the next 10 deliveries fetched just 9 runs, including Imad Wasim's third over of the night; costing just three runs. Still, Kane Williamson being in the middle means Black Caps pavilion is not exactly feeling worried.

New Zealand 36/1 in 5.2 overs OUT! Haris Rauf earns the breakthrough for Pakistan! Bowling his second delivery of the night, the pacer bowled Martin Guptill (20b 3x4 0x6), who saw the ball take an inside edge of his bat before hitting the stumps.

New Zealand 36/0 in 5 overs Hasan Ali was introduced for the first time into the attack but Kiwi openers showed no mercy to him by smashing him for 15 runs in the over. Mitchell welcomed him with a six over mid-on while Guptill placed a no-ball for four over the point fielder.

New Zealand 21/0 in 4 overs A boundary each in the next two overs by both openers have added some pace to the Kiwi scoreboard. Both Shaheen Afridi and spinner Imad Wasim have failed to coerce a mistake out of the batters.

New Zealand 7/0 in 2 overs Kiwi openers Martin Guptill and Daryl Mitchell took a cautious approach against Pakistan pacer in the first two overs. Smart enough not to mess with the in-form Shaheen Afridi.


07:25 PM Both teams are out for the national anthem, New Zealand to go first!

07:14 PM Pakistan captain Babar Azam opts to bowl first against Kane Williamson-led New Zealand in Sharjah on Tuesday. Azam decided not to tinker with his winning combination as he field the same XI from the India match. New Zealand, on the other hand, will be without pacer Lockie Ferguson, who had calf tear confirmation moments before the match.

Pakistan: 1 Babar Azam (capt.) 2 Mohammad Rizwan (wk) 3 Fakhar Zaman 4 Mohammad Hafeez 5 Shoaib Malik 6 Asif Ali 7 Shadab Khan 8 Imad Wasim 9 Hasan Ali 10 Haris Rauf 11 Shaheen Shah Afridi.

For a lot of Pakistani fans, the team may have already won the World Cup by ending its 29-year-old World Cup jinx against India but the Babar Azam-led team has already shown the hunger for going all the way.
