New Zealand’s performance was absolutely awe-inspiring. Even in the absence of Shaheen Shah Afridi from the bowling attack, they effortlessly reached the formidable target of 345 runs. Their journey got off to a challenging start when Conway was dismissed for a golden duck. Ravindra’s exceptional innings set the tone, and he came tantalizingly close to achieving a well-deserved century. Williamson made the most of the opportunity for crucial batting practice, retiring after scoring a half-century. Mitchell and Chapman also played vital roles with their fifties, with Chapman’s explosive performance standing out.
Throughout the match, New Zealand asserted their complete dominance, sending a powerful message with their victory over a strong Pakistani bowling lineup. The pitch, particularly under the floodlights, heavily favored the batsmen, and the only resistance from the Pakistani bowlers came from Usama Mir’s leg-spin. New Zealand’s ability to chase down 346 runs with 6.2 overs to spare demonstrated their utter control and supremacy in the game.
