Pakistan is the first side to achieve an undesirable T20 record in New Zealand by not scoring a six throughout their innings.
On Tuesday, Pakistan became the first team to reach the unwelcome record of not hitting a single six throughout their whole T20 inning in New Zealand. The match took place in Srinagar.
In the Twenty20 match that was played in Christchurch as part of the current Tri-series, the hosts New Zealand prevailed against Pakistan by a score of nine wickets.
Pakistan’s total score was just 130/7 after 20 overs, whereas New Zealand reached their goal in 16.1 overs with losing only one wicket. Pakistan’s innings lasted for 20 overs.
Iftikhar Ahmed scored the most runs for Pakistan with 27, while Asif Ali stayed not out despite having scored 25.
During the whole of Pakistan’s innings, their batsmen were only able to smash a total of 15 boundaries while failing to hit a single six.
With this, Pakistan has achieved the unenviable milestone of being the first country in the world to go a complete innings in New Zealand without striking a single six. This has never before occurred in any of the 77 Twenty20 Internationals that have been played in the country.
Also, it has been eight years since the Pakistan squad has gone an entire Twenty20 International without hitting a six. The most recent time it happened against Australia occurred in 2014 in Dubai.
