The match will start at 9:00 pm according to Pakistan Standard time (PST).

In a first T-20 match, Pakistan beat New Zealand by two runs.

New Zealand needed six off the last delivery to tie the match but experienced batsman Ross Taylor managed just a boundary as New Zealand — set 149 to win — finished at 146-6 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

The victory gave world number one ranked Pakistan their seventh consecutive win since July and 15th in 17 Twenty20 internationals this year.

Pakistan, who are on a roll after whitewashing Australia 3-0 in Dubai on Sunday, now have a 1-0 lead in the three-match series with the last two matches in Dubai on Friday and Sunday.
