New Zealand vs Pakistan | 'All Class Babar!' - Twitter Lauds Pakistan's Stunning Performance

Pakistan kept their hopes alive of making the ICC World Cup 2019 semi-finals after they beat New Zealand by six wickets in their group stage match on Wednesday.

 

Winning the toss and electing to bat first, New Zealand were off to a horrendous start. While Mohammad Amir got the first breakthrough, Shaheen Afridi ripped apart the Kiwi middle order with his splendid bowling. Colin de Grandhomme and Jimmy Neesham put on a hundred-plus stand for the sixth wicket.

 

 

 

 

New Zealand managed to pick the openers early but Babar Azam and Mohammed Hafeez steadied the ship. Williamson broke the stand but Haris Sohail joined the former and ensured Pakistan did not any other hiccups and gained the much-needed two points.
