Pakistan need 174 to avoid New Zealand T20 series sweep

NAPIER, New Zealand – New Zealand set Pakistan a target of 174 in the third Twenty20 international at Napier’s McLean Park on Tuesday as the Black Caps seek a series clean sweep.

The New Zealanders finished their innings at 173 for seven after losing the toss and being asked to bat, with Devon Conway top scoring on 63

“It’s a decent total compared to where we were at one point,” Conway said.

“We were talking about the 160 mark as somewhere we’d like to get to, and to reach 170-plus is a good total.”

Faheem Ashraf was the pick of the Pakistan bowlers, taking three for 20.BSS/AFP
