21 off 7 balls, on a pathetically slow pitch. In your faces haters… If given continuous chances, Umar Amin will keep owning his haters left right & center, iA

Well! Some people still don’t seem to like him!
This is Umar Amin's best performance. Should retire now.

Zainab had something special to say when Shadab was able to get Guptill’s wicket again!
Shadab Khan’s bunny – Guptill!

This pretty much explains that it wasn’t a cake walk!
Amir: Howzat? Out hogaya, out hogaya, flick hogaya, HOWZAT?
Sarfaraz: BALL LAY, BALL LAY, ABAY BALL LAY.

This explains how Pakistan reclaimed the no. 1 spot in ICC T20 rankings.
Pakistan claim the No.1 spot in the T20I rankings. The ever-so-mercurial Pakistan win by 18 runs after losing the first game and win the series 2-1! Amir, Yamin and Shadab bowl pivotal spells to script a turnaround and they return home with some silverware.#NZvPAK pic.twitter.com/k0xalOGd71

People began praising the men in green the moment the game was over!
Extremely proud at the way Pakistan bounced back after the ODI series defeat. The turbulence was arrested by a young side and how.. wah wah!!#T20No1

@MuhammadWasim77 Well played Pak winning the T 20 Series. Aamer Yamin, diminutive Shadab & M. Aamir were brilliant. Fakhar as usual the batting star cast & unlucky to be given out today. Great to see them ending the tour on a winning note. Pakistan No 1 team in T 20 Rankings👍
