Pakistan skipper Shaheen Afridi won the toss and asked the hosts to bat first; batting first, New Zealand posted a decent total of 194 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in the allotted 20 overs.

Star opener Finn Allen played a blistering knock of 74 runs off just 41 balls, hitting 7 fours and 5 sixes. Besides him, skipper Kane Williamson and Mitchell Santner also scored 26 and 25 runs, respectively, alongside 20 runs scored by 20 runs off 15 balls, with 3 fours.
