Pakistan’s women’s team created history by winning their first-ever T20 match against New Zealand.

The Pakistan women’s cricket team achieved a momentous feat with a remarkable seven-wicket triumph over New Zealand in the first T20I at Dunedin’s University of Otago Oval. This notable achievement represents Pakistan’s inaugural T20I victory against the formidable New Zealand squad, known as the White Ferns.

In pursuit of a target of 128, Pakistan’s opening pair, Shawaal Zulfiqar and Muneeba Ali, laid a strong foundation with a resilient 40-run partnership. Shawaal, making her debut in T20Is on New Zealand soil, showcased her skills by achieving her highest T20I score of 41, setting the stage for a memorable chase. The experienced duo of Bismah Maroof and Aliya Riaz guided the team to a composed victory.

Pakistan’s bowlers demonstrated great skill by restricting the White Ferns to 127 for six. Fatima Sana, with her right-arm fast deliveries, stood out, taking three crucial wickets for just 18 runs.

Despite New Zealand’s efforts, led by Maddy Green’s unbeaten 44 off 28 balls, Pakistan’s determined bowling attack kept them in control throughout the innings.

The upcoming matches hold promise, with the second T20I scheduled at the same venue on December 5 and the final encounter set for Queenstown on December 9. This series not only signifies Pakistan’s historic breakthrough but also sets the stage for an exciting showdown between these competitive teams, promising more thrilling cricket action in the days ahead.
