Pakistan to face New Zealand in second T20I today

Pakistan, New Zealand to lock horns in first ODI today

AUCKLAND: Still searching for their first win on this gloomy tour, Pakistan face New Zealand in the second T20 international at Eden Park, Auckland today.
High-flying New Zealand will look to seal the three-match T20 series whereas Pakistan need a win to avoid another series loss, after suffering a 5-0 clean sweep in the ODI series earlier this month.
The Kiwis beat Pakistan by seven wickets in the first T20 in Wellington, as the tourists’ batting woes persisted. The Green Shirts could only manage a total of 105, with only Babar Azam and Hasan Ali reaching double figures. New Zealand chased down the target with seven wickets in hand and 25 balls remaining, driven by a power batting show by Colin Munro (49*).
Ahmed Shehzad is expected to return to the playing XI, along with veteran batsman Mohammad Hafeez.
