RAWALPINDI: (UrduPoint/UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News-April 21st, 2024) Pakistan set a 179 runs target for Kiwis in the third T20I match at Rawalpindi stadium on Sunday.

Shadab Khan played well and helped his side to a strong position by scoring 41 runs off 20 balls. Babar Azam, the skipper, scored 37 off 29 balls, and he returned to the pavilion in the start.

The situation turned a bit tricky for Pakistan but Shadab Khan, and at the later stage, Saim Ayub stayed on the crease and they pushed their side up.

Pakistan lost four wickets to score 178 runs after Kiwis won the toss and decided to bowl first—a strategic move in a bid to secure victory.

Pakistan lead the five-match series 1-0.
