Pakistan bowled out New Zealand for 90 runs in the second T-20I being played at Pindi Cricket Ground, Rawalpindi on Saturday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.  

The Green Shirts will have to chase a paltry 91-run target in the allocated overs to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

After being made to bat first by Pakistan, the Black Caps were never in the game as they were troubled greatly by the Pakistani pace attack consisting of Shaheen Shah Afridi, Muhammad Amir, and Nasim Shah. 

The pacers got NZ wickets with regular intervals and limited the opposition team to 90 runs for all out.  Shaheen Shah Afridi and Muhammad Amir took three and two wickets respectively.

Soon in the third over, Shaheen Afridi, known for performing with the new ball, did he what he does best and sent the Black Caps’ opener, Tim Seifert, back to the pavilion for just 12 runs.

After Shaheen, Mohammad Amir, who was playing his first match for Pakistan in almost four years, came to bowl and struck in his first over, removing Tim Robinson for just four runs.

Amir continued to trouble the visitor’s batting lineup as in his second over, he took the wicket of Dean Foxcroft with skipper Babar Azam taking a simple catch.

The Kiwis managed to save wickets for the next two overs but Abrar Ahmed took two quick wickets in the ninth over, sending Mark Chapman and James Neesham back to the pavilion after contributing 19 and one run respectively.

The remaining damage down the order was done by Shadab Khan and Naseem Shah. Only four New Zealand batters managed to score in double digits as Pakistan dominated the night with the ball.

Afridi picked three, while Amir, Abrar, and Shadab got two each. Naseem could only bag one.

Earlier today, Pakistan won the toss and opted to bowl first.
