Pakistan vs New Zealand: Shaheens Won By 6 Wickets

Pakistan kept World Cup hopes alive when they beat New Zealand by 6 wickets

Pakistan won their match against New Zealand by six wickets on Wednesday at Edgbaston Cricket Ground. Black Caps scored 237 with 6 at 50 overs while Shaheens had 241 with 4 in 49.1 overs.

Pakistan right-handed batsman Babar Azam carried his team’s score with 101 while batsman Haris Sohail helped with 68. The Shaheens reached their target score to beat Black Caps off the first ball in their final over.

“The wicket was difficult but my aim was to bat for 50 overs and if I did I knew Pakistan would win the match,” said Azam after the match. “We know we’d need to score runs off the pace bowlers. Once (Mitchell) Santner came on it was doing stuff off the pitch so (Mohammad) Hafeez told me to stick at it and score three or four runs an over.”

Pakistan is currently at sixth place with seven points equal to Bangladesh who are in fifth place. Australia secured their spot at the top followed by New Zealand, India, and England, respectively. The Shaheens’ have +790 odds to win the entire 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.
