The International Cricket Council (ICC) recalled Pakistan’s six-wicket victory against New Zealand in their 2019 World Cup fixture.

The sport’s governing body shared highlights of the match in Birmingham.

New Zealand’s decision to bat first came back to haunt them as the side were reduced to 83-5 at one stage. However, Jimmy Neesham (97 not out off 112) and Colin de Grandhomme (64 off 71) stitched a 132-run partnership that helped the side get to a score of 237-6.

Mohammad Amir delivered the goods with his superb figures of 3-28 in 10 overs which included three maidens.

Pakistan completed the run chase with five balls to spare. Babar Azam once again proved his class as he went on to play a match-winning unbeaten knock of 101 from 127 deliveries.

He put on a 66-run partnership with Mohammad Hafeez and a 126-run stand with Haris Sohail (68 off 76).
