Phillips and Mitchell, two fast bowlers, beat Pakistan 4-0

New Zealand 159 for 3 (Mitchell 72*, Phillips 70*, Afridi 3-34) beat Pakistan 158 for 5 (Rizwan 90*, Henry 2-22, Ferguson 2-27) by seven wickets

New Zealand beat Pakistan by seven wickets in the fourth T20I, and now they are ahead 4-0 in the five-match series. Glenn Phillips and Daryl Mitchell both scored fifty runs without being out, and Matt Henry and Lockie Ferguson each took two wickets.

When Pakistan went to bat, Mohammad Rizwan was the only bright spot. It was another bad game for their openers in Christchurch. The other hitters only got 61 off 55 balls, and Pakistan reached 158 for 5 in their 20 overs. He scored 90 runs without being out off 63 balls.

Pressure for the first time

Shaheen Shah Afridi struck three times in his first two overs to put New Zealand under strain for the first time in the series. Mitchell and Phillips took their time settling in before opening up to help New Zealand win in 18.1 overs. Phillips struck an unbeaten 70 off 52 balls, Mitchell 72 off 44, and they added 139 off 93 balls for the third wicket.

Rizwan dominates, but middle order disappoints.

Rizwan resumed his merry way, finding gaps often. As with Pakistan’s batting this series, they failed to form partnerships. Babar mistimed a 149.5kph Milne bumper to Phillips at deep midwicket. Fakhar Zaman took the innings down, scoring 9 off 15 before Ferguson ended his agony. Sahibzada Farhan, who replaced Azam Khan, lasted two balls as Pakistan fell to 86 for 4 after 13 overs.

Afridi shocks NZ early

Skip-step and legendary celebration returned. After hitting Afridi for two fours, Finn Allen was caught at point on the fourth delivery of the first over after closing the face of the bat too soon on a full-length ball on leg stump. Two balls later, Tim Seifert’s weak chip fell to Babar at mid-off. Afridi continued. Will Young hit a powerful pull on a short-of-length ball, but Nawaz at short midwicket threw to his right and caught it. New Zealand discovered uncharted territory at 20 for 3 after 2.4 overs.

Mitchell, Phillips top the race

It was a fantastic chase setup after early wicket losses. Phillps collected boundaries and ran like a gazelle between wickets as usual. Mitchell originally remained patient when the required run rate exceeded nine.

New Zealand scored 38 powerplay runs and 70 after ten. They lost no wickets, which was crucial. No doubt, they gave chances. Mitchell mis-hit a sweep off Nawaz to deep backwards square leg in the tenth over, and Mohammad Wasim misread the catch with the ball almost at his feet. In the 13th over, Farhan dropped a dolly at long-on.
