Pakistan set New Zealand a target of 154 after recovering from a poor start in the first Twenty20 international at Auckland’s Eden Park on Friday.

The tourists ended their 20 overs on 153 for nine after winning the toss and electing to bat, scrambling back from an early collapse that left them on four for 20.


Stand-in captain Shadab Khan top scored with 42 from 32 balls and Faheem Ashraf made 31 from 18.

Debutant Jacob Duffy was the standout bowler for the Black Caps, taking four for 33 and Scott Kuggeleijn finished with three for 27.
