Pakistan’s Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan set a new world record during the second T20I against New Zealand, as they notched up their 19th 50+ partnership in the format. This surpasses the previous record held by India’s Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, who have 15 such partnerships in T20Is. Pakistan won the first T20I on Friday, leading the five-match series 1-0.

New Zealand made two changes for the second T20I, with Henry Shipley replacing Adam Milne and Cole McConchie replacing Ish Sodhi, who has a calf niggle. Meanwhile, Pakistan remained unchanged for the contest. Eight Kiwis are missing from the tour due to their commitments to the Indian Premier League, and skipper Kane Williamson has a knee injury, with Tom Latham taking over the captaincy.

The remaining three T20 matches are scheduled for April 17 in Lahore, and 20 and 24 in Rawalpindi. After the T20 series, Pakistan and New Zealand will play five one-day internationals as they gear up for this year’s 50-over World Cup in India.

The tour is seen as compensation for New Zealand’s decision to pull out of their visit to Pakistan in September 2021 due to security concerns. The Black Caps did play two Tests and three ODIs in Pakistan just three months ago, providing an opportunity for newcomers to shine in Williamson’s absence.
