Pakistan Team secures victory from ‘insecure’ New Zealand in Sharjah

Muhammad Hafeez termed the victory to the security forces of Pakistan who guard the nation in thick and thin

Pakistan Team performed phenomenally as Asif Ali and experienced player Shoaib Malik kept their unbeaten start to the T20 World Cup 2021 alive with a closely contested five-wicket win over New Zealand in Sharjah on Tuesday.

Chasing 135, Pakistan were expected to cruise to the target, especially after their 10-wicket drubbing of the mighty Indian side on Sunday. But instead, the chase turned increasingly difficult as Pakistan’s trademark batting collapse reared its head again, and threatened to break the hearts of their fans.

Prime Minister Imran Khan said, “Congratulations Team Pakistan. Bowling again was outstanding. A good team will analyse it’s mistakes when it loses. A great team does a thorough analysis of its game even when it wins.”

Skipper Babar Azam said, “Alhumdulillah, 2/2. What an amazing display of bowling, fielding and batting against a quality side! The best part is the entire team chipping in and playing their roles in the victory of Pakistan. More prayers needed as all eyes set on the next game. “

At one point in the run chase, Pakistan were 87-5 in the 15th over and the game was slipping away from the clutches of the Men in Green.

This is when Malik and Asif came together to form an unbeaten 48-run partnership in a clutch situation.
