The weather for the third and final T20I, scheduled in Johannesburg, also doesn’t seem much promising with chances of precipitation.
In a one-sided semi-final match of the ongoing T20 World Cup, Babar Azam led Pakistan have registered a thumping victory against New Zealand at Sydney Cricket Ground on Wednesday.
Pakistan easily passed the Kiwi’s test by giving them a 7-wicket defeat.
Opting to bat first, the Kiwis managed to put up only 152 runs on board, thanks to Daryl Mitchell 53-run inning, which Babar’s side chased quite easily in the final over.
It was an off day for New Zealand in all three departments, they missed out a chance to put up a high total, missing the right line and length and dropping crucial wicket taking chances through the 40 over game.
For Pakistan, it was the 105-run stand between Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan which set the winning tone for them.
The winning team has now booked a spot for the Final. The other two remaining teams, India and England, will battle it out tomorrow at the Adelaide Oval.
