AUCKLAND: Pakistan crushed New Zealand by 48 runs in the second T20 to notch their first victory of the tour over the Black Caps.

They set an imposing target of 202 after winning the toss and electing to bat with half centuries for Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman. In response, New Zealand were all out for 153.
