He has accumulated an impressive 2,943 runs at an average of 49.05. Notably, his stellar record against New Zealand includes 584 T20I runs at an average of 38.93.
  3. Shaheen Afridi’s Impact Shaheen Afridi’s impressive three-wicket haul (3/34) contributed to Pakistan’s bowling effort. With 71 T20I scalps at an average of 22.65, Afridi has proven his effectiveness, especially against New Zealand, boasting 23 wickets at 22.26.
