The Pakistan women’s cricket team on Tuesday completed a historic series win over New Zealand after the Green Team defeated the Kiwis in the second T20 International game in a three-match series in Dunedin.

The series win would be the first series sweep for the women’s side outside of Asia and Ireland and their first series victory away from home since 2018.

The women’s team also made history on Sunday as they registered their maiden win over New Zealand, beating the hosts by seven wickets in the first Twenty20 International.

New Zealand managed 127 at the University of Otago Oval in their 20 overs after losing seven wickets with the match concluding in favour of the Green Team who won by 10 runs.

Wicketkeeper Batter Muneeba Ali Siddiqi scored 35 at the top of the order for Pakistan, with meaningful contributions coming from Bismah Maroof who scored 21 and skipper Nida Dar who made 14.

Fran Jones was the pick of the New Zealand bowlers as the 19-year-old took two in her four overs giving away 21 runs.

In response, New Zealand lost three wickets in the powerplay which hampered the chase for the Kiwis.

Runs from Georgia Plimmer and Rowe towards the end brought the Kiwis back into the game, however, the effort was in vain.

Fatima Sana took three wickets after giving away 22 runs in her four overs, and Sadia Iqbal took two wickets in her four overs for 29 runs.

The third and final T20I of the series will be played in Queensland on December 9.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Zaka Ashraf congratulated the team on today’s “remarkable achievement”.

“Pakistan women’s team have made the whole nation proud with their brilliant display of skill and talent in New Zealand. I want to congratulate and laud the efforts of the entire squad, team management and support personnel for their collective effort in making the team achieve this special feat,” he said in a statement.

“The leadership qualities and courage exhibited by captain Nida Dar reflects in the way her players have responded to the challenge and acquired success on the big stage,” Ashraf said.

He also announced that a special ceremony would be hosted felicitating the team upon their return from the New Zealand tour later this month.
