Pakistan beat New Zealand in the second T20I to win the three-match T20I series by 2-0 with another game to go. The visitors had to defend a target of 154 runs to win the game but after failing to take early wickets, Kiwis saw the game slipping out of their hands.
New Zealand could only pick one wicket in the powerplay. The batsman to go was Fakhar Zaman and the wicket went to Adam Milne. But it should have gone to Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson for his effort.
It was the fifth over when Zaman tried to pierce the mid-off but a miscue resulted in his dismissal. Williamson jumped in the air and took a one-handed catch as the ball was traveling fast.

Is that a bird? No, that's Kane Williamson! He dives away to his left and picks up a brilliant catch. @FakharZamanLive cannot believe it

New Zealand lost two consecutive games against Sarfraz Ahmed led side who are unconquered under him in T20I. The first game was a close game where the visitors fell 2 runs short of the target.
In the second T20I, it was Shaheen Afridi's outstanding spell which restricted New Zealand to just 153 runs. He picked up 3/20 in four overs which were also a man of the match-winning performance.
