In the intense clash between New Zealand and Pakistan during the ongoing T20I series, the 4th match showcased a stellar performance from Pakistan's captain and fast bowler, Shaheen Afridi. His remarkable spell unfolded in the opening over, where he dismantled the New Zealand batting order by claiming two pivotal wickets.

The turning point occurred when Afridi delivered a precise, full-length swinging delivery near the off stump, leaving Tim Seifert with no room for error. Seifert's attempt to drive through mid-on resulted in a golden duck, with the ball looping straight to Babar Azam stationed at mid-on. 

Babar's impeccable fielding skills ensured a clean catch, leaving New Zealand in a precarious position at 37 for 3 within 6 overs.

The dismissals of Finn Allen and Tim Seifert set the stage for Pakistan's dominance, leading to a formidable total of 158 runs. As Daryl Mitchell and Glenn Phillips took their positions at the crease, New Zealand faced a daunting task to recover from the early setbacks inflicted by Shaheen Afridi. 

Earlier in the match, Pakistan ended their innings with a respectable total 158/5, thanks to Mohammad Rizwan's capturing 90*.
