VIDEO: Pakistan vs New Zealand, 1st T20I highlights

Pakistan completed their 15th win in T20Is, beating New Zealand by two runs on Wednesday to affirm their status as world No 1 after sweeping Australia 3-0.

Defending 17 runs off the last over of the game under lights at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, the 18-year-old pace bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi  conceded 15 to seal a narrow victory that put Pakistan up 1-0 in the three-match series.

Kane Williamson’s Blackcaps should have chased down Pakistan’s total of 148/6, especially after the rampaging opener Colin Munro sped to 58 off 42 balls before holing out to the long-on boundary as three wickets fell for 10 runs in 14 balls.
