The Black Caps have been thrashed by Pakistan in the second T20 by seven wickets with 47 balls to spare in Rawalpindi.

The inexperienced New Zealand side were bowled out for just 90 runs in the 19th over with the home side chasing the total down in the 13th over.


Shaheen Shah Afridi was the best of the Pakistan attack with 3-13 while Mohammad Amir finished with 2-13. Abrar Ahmed and Shadab Khan took two wickets each.

New Zealand was sent in to bat with openers Tim Seifert and Tim Robinson out cheaply for 12 and 4 respectively.

The highest score for the Black Caps came from Mark Chapman with 19 from 16 balls, while Cole McConchie made 15. Dean Foxcroft was the only other batter to make double figures with 13.


New Zealand's 90 runs was never going to be enough, with Pakistan's Mohammed Rizwan scoring an unbeaten 45 off just 34 balls to anchor the chase.

Ben Lister, captain Michael Bracewell and Ish Sodhi all took a wicket each.

Pakistan has taken a 1-0 lead in the five match series after the opening match was abandoned after just two balls due to rain.
