In the world of cricket, moments of historic significance are cherished and celebrated, regardless of the teams involved. Such a moment unfolded recently as the InBetCricket team brings you the remarkable journey of the Pakistan women's cricket team. They achieved a groundbreaking milestone by securing their first-ever T20I series victory away from home, and it was against none other than New Zealand.
A Historic Triumph
The Pakistan women's cricket team left an indelible mark on the cricketing landscape when they clinched a historic 10-run victory over New Zealand in the second T20I of their series. This monumental win not only marked their first-ever T20I series triumph on foreign soil since October 2018 but also ended a drought of over five years without a series victory.
In the second T20I, Pakistan was asked to bat first and posted an impressive total of 137 for six in their allotted 20 overs. Muneeba Ali's stellar performance, scoring 35 off 28 balls, set the tone for the team's success. Aliya Riaz, who was awarded the Player of the Match, played an unbeaten knock of 32 off 22 balls. This brilliant display of cricketing prowess secured their historic victory.
Breaking New Ground:
The Pakistan women's cricket team's historic first includes several remarkable achievements:
- Their first-ever victory against New Zealand.
- A 10-run victory in the second T20I in Dunedin.
- Their first away win since 2018.
- Ending a five-year wait for a T20I series win.
This triumph also established Pakistan as the first Asian team to conquer the Kiwis in a T20I series, a feat that will be remembered for years to come.
After this memorable win, senior players Aliya Riaz, Nida Dar, and Bismah Maroof shared their insights and emotions. They emphasized the team's desire to perform at their best and their commitment to defeating formidable opponents. Their dedication and unity have brought them remarkable results, culminating in this historic series win.
A Remarkable Turnaround
Before this series, New Zealand women had an impeccable 8-0 record against Pakistan women in T20Is. However, Pakistan's resilience and determination rewrote history with back-to-back victories. They had previously defeated the hosts by seven wickets in the first game at the same venue. The third and final T20I of the series promises to be a thrilling encounter on December 9.
