T20 Tri-Series final: Pakistan defeat New Zealand by 5 wickets

Mohammad Nawaz helped Pakistan to a 5 wickets victory over New Zealand to win the tri-series Twenty20 final with three balls to spare.

It was a good sign for Pakistan going into the World Cup in Australia, with an opener against arch-rivals India on October 23.

Haider Ali made a useful 31 off 15 balls.

The Black Caps started well with captain Kane Williamson the top-scorer with a masterful display of stroke play to chalk up 59 off 38 balls.

The hosts flew out of the traps with Finn Allen hitting three fours before he was caught by Naseem Shah for 12 off six balls.
