New Zealand defeats Pakistan in first T20


After a wobbly start in which Martin Guptill went for two and Glenn Phillips was bowled for three, Munro and Tom Bruce (26) set up the New Zealand victory with a 49-run stand for the third wicket. Ranked second in T20s, Pakistan will be aiming to improve their fortunes in the tour of New Zealand, where they struggled to come to grips with the conditions during the ODI series. The T20I series represents a chance for the tourists to salvage some pride but they face an uphill battle against a rampant New Zealand side, who are now ranked No.1 in the ICC T20I rankings.

They have done little wrong, despite having rotated players in order to rest the regulars and give newbies a chance, who have stepped up rather well to fit in those boots and ensure New Zealand have been unbeaten so far this summer.

After whitewashing their opponents five-nil in the ODI series, the Kiwis continued where they left off as they dismissed Pakistan for a paltry 105 after stand-in captain Tim Southee elected to bowl first.
