The first two games were wins by the Green Shirts.
The Pakistani women’s cricket team defeated New Zealand 2-1 at John Davies Oval on Saturday to win the three-match Twenty20 series.
As the first Asian team to win the T20 series in New Zealand, the Green Shirts defeated the Kiwis in their opening two games by margins of seven wickets and ten runs, respectively.

New Zealand, who was already out of the series, made a good start to the chase. Amelia Kerr smashed 35 from 31 balls, and Suzie Bates scored an undefeated 51 off just 42 balls.

Sadia Iqbal and Nashra Sandhu of Pakistan each claimed one wicket.
Dar became the first player in Pakistani T20 history to appear in the most matches while playing in her 141st match. Prior to this, Bismah Maroof, who participated in 140 T20 Internationals, held this record.
