Right. So with that result, both Pakistan and New Zealand have two wins from three games each. Bangladesh are still bottom of the table but have a chance to get on board tomorrow. That's all from us today. Do join us for New Zealand vs Bangladesh tomorrow. Thanks for joining us. This is Ankur signing off on behalf of Deiva and Chandan.

Kane Williamson: An improvement from the last game. A really efficient first half. We were limited with our seam bowling options. On this sort of wicket it was about being disciplined with the lines and lengths. He (Finn Allen) has been hitting the ball well. He batted beautifully today. It's important we keep assessing the conditions. We want to keep improving every day.

Babar Azam: First innings the pitch was a bit slow, we weren't up to the mark. We have a day off tomorrow so we'll discuss our mistakes. We had a bad day with the bat, it wasn't up to the mark.

Michael Bracewell is the player of the match: Slightly different role today bowling in the Powerplay. Pretty happy with the way it came out today. Got a bit fortunate in the first over. I'm really enjoying my role in trying to provide some quality overs. If you can try and contain players like Finn Allen in the nets you are half way there. I would like to have a hit (with the bat) but the sides doing well if I'm not batting.

New Zealand have made this look incredibly easy. They've made lightwork of this chase and registered their second win of the series. The opening partnership between Finn Allen and Devon Conway snuffed the fight out of Pakistan. Allen made his second T20I fifty that included some massive hits over the fence. Conway was quieter but no less effective as he finished with an unbeaten 49. But for all practical purposes, the fate of the match was sealed in the first innings when Pakistan batted. The New Zealand spinners were miserly. They dried up boundaries and picked up key wickets through the middle. Mitchell Santner, Michael Bracewell and Ish Sodhi shared five wickets between them. Tim Southee gave away nothing in the death and picked up a couple of wickets as well. So a comprehensive win for the hosts and some thinking to do for Pakistan. Stay tuned for the presentation.

Shadab strikes! That's the end of a really entertaining innings, He skipped down the wicket and looked to launch him leg side, Shadab dropped it slightly shorter and beat him in the flight.
