After losing the One Day International (ODI) series 5-0 and following the defeat in the first T20 of the three match series, Pakistan Cricket Team was finally able to register its first victory during the New Zealand tour.
Cricket fans in Pakistan could hardly believe their eyes and hence, were quick to turn to Twitter to celebrate the development. Here is what they had to say!
Just before the match began, fans had little or no hope from the openers!

Pakistan have lost their first 5 batsmen within the first 100 runs throughout the series. So, it was literally nostalgic to see them bat the way they did.

Fakhar Zaman was the star of the show whose quick-fire half century provided a healthy platform to the middle order so that they could push to post a huge total.

Still, some people weren’t happy with Fakhar’s partner, Ahmed Shehzad scoring runs!
