Guptill falls early:

The two-paced nature of the pitch claimed another victim and this time, it was New Zealand’s Martin Guptill who mistimed a pull off Rumman Raees to depart for 2.

Colin Munro’s last three scores in T20Is are 53, 66 and 104. How much will he get today?

Pakistan bowled out for 105:

Azam scores a four and a six off Munro in the final over before becoming the last to depart as Pakistan fold for 105. Can their bowlers step up and fight with this pantry total? Or will New Zealand’s domination continue?

Hasan Ali wields the long handle:

With a big six off Sodhi and a couple of maximums off Rance, Hasan Ali managed to provide some tempo to Pakistan’s innings but he became the eighth to depart when perished in his attempt to go over the top again off Rance.

Southee returns to end promising stand:

Babar Azam and Faheem Ashraf kept the New Zealand bowlers at bay for a while before Southee returned to pick up his third wicket. Ashraf was late on a pull and sliced the ball towards extra cover where Bruce held on to a good catch. Pakistan are 53 for 7 after 14.

Santner strikes:

Sarfraz Ahmed becomes the fifth to depart to leave Pakistan in more trouble. Looking to sweep a Santner delivery, the Pakistan captain lost his balance and was out stumped. Shadab Khan departs off the very next delivery, edging Santner to the ‘keeper, who juggled before holding on to the ball. Pakistan slip to 39 for 6 after 10.

In a spin:

Kitchen strikes:

Haris Sohail too is guilty of poor shot selection. He tries to hit Kitchen over cover but only manages to give Tom Bruce a simple catch. Pakistan reeling at 24 for 4 after six overs.

Another wicket:

Poor shot selection results in another wicket going down. This time, it’s Nawaz who tries to hit Southee over the top but only manages to find Colin Munro at mid-on. Pakistan slip to 15 for 3 in the fourth over.

Sound advice:

Rance strikes:

Amin’s struggle comes to an end as he falls to Rance in his second over, a top edge held by Kitchen again. He departs for a duck, leaving Pakistan in a lot of trouble.

Zaman departs early:

With plenty of bounce on offer, Seth Rance relished bowling on the pitch as he troubled Umar Amin in the opening over. The single that Fakhar Zaman took to get off the mark was the only run scored in the first over. The short deliveries continued to trouble the Pakistan openers and stand-in skipper Southee almost got a wicket in his opening over as Zaman got a top edge while attempting the pull but the ball landed just away from the diving ‘keeper Glenn Phillips. But a slightly fuller delivery gave Southee his first wicket as Zaman failed to clear Anaru Kitchen at cover. Southee could have bagged another but for Ross Taylor, who put down Mohammad Nawaz at slip. Pakistan are 4 for 1 after 2 overs.

Toss and Teams:

Tim Southee, who was captaining New Zealand in Williamson’s absence, won the toss and decided to bowl.

Pakistan (Playing XI): Umar Amin, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail, Sarfraz Ahmed(w/c), Babar Azam, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Nawaz, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Amir, Rumman Raees

Prelude:

Hello and welcome to the Live Blog for the first T20I between New Zealand and Pakistan. It has been a prosperous summer for New Zealand as they ensured Windies were sent back home without a single win and then blanked Pakistan 5-0 in the ODIs. Despite their rotation policy, which will be implemented in this T20I series as well, New Zealand have seldom erred. Meanwhile, it was an end of Pakistan’s unbeaten streak since the Champions Trophy and they also became the first team to be at the receiving end of a whitewash after inflicting one themselves in the series prior. With the T20I series, Pakistan will be hoping that the change in the format will also bring about a revival in their fortunes. While we await the toss, here’s a detailed preview.
