PAK vs NZ Semifinal T20 World Cup 2022: After reaching the semi-finals in the T20 World Cup with Kismat Connection, Pakistan performed brilliantly. Till now, captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan, who were seen as a burden on the Pakistani team, suddenly became the biggest surma of the team. In the first semi-final of the tournament against New Zealand at the Sydney Cricket Ground, both these batsmen, who have been seen beaten so far, played half-centuries. The Kiwi team, who played like a champion in Pakistan’s Super 12 stage, tried a lot, but the speed of Babar-Rizwan left their efforts behind.

Pakistan won by strong innings of Babar-Rizwan

Captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan played an important role in this victory for Pakistan. There was a target of 153 for victory at the Sydney Cricket Ground. In response, the Babar-Rizwan pair made a strong start. Both of them scored 55 runs in the powerplay of the first 6 overs with a run rate above 9.

Babar, who is batting loose, scoring just 39 runs in 5 matches of Super 12, has woken up from his sleep in this knockout match. A day earlier, the team’s mentor Matthew Hayden had said that Babar’s poor rhythm was the silence before the storm. The same thing happened. Babar scored 53 runs in 42 balls in this crucial match, which included 7 fours.

After the dismissal of Babar, it was the turn of T20 cricket batsman Rizwan to hit the fifty. Like Babar, he also scored his first half-century in this tournament. Rizwan scored 57 runs in 43 balls in this match, which included just 5 fours.

Williamson’s wicket proved to be the turning point

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson was dismissed for 46 runs in 42 balls in 16.2 overs. When he got out, 22 balls were yet to be bowled. The Kiwi captain had just started opening his hands, had just changed gears for the long shot that Shaheen Afridi clean bowled. Due to this wicket, New Zealand suffered a loss of at least 15-20 runs.

Batting first, New Zealand scored 152 runs in this match, which included an unbeaten fifty from Darrell Mitchell. Pakistan chased down the target of 153 with 5 balls to spare and won the match by 7 wickets.
