An interesting One Day International (ODI) match is currently at the Karachi National Stadium in Karachi where Pakistan team is hosting New Zealand in the 2nd ODI of the 3 match series.
Pakistan currently leads the 3 match series 1-0 after winning the 1st match of the series. It was the Tim Southee who won the toss and opted to bat first.
The Kiwis got off to a good start despite losing Finn Allen early on. Both Devon Conway and Kane Williamson formed a great partnership of 181 runs until the centurion Devon Conway was dismissed by Naseem Shah.
And despite that when New Zealand was looking to make it a big total on the board, it was then a magical bowling performance from the Pakistan bowler Mohammad Nawaz.
Nawaz picked 4 wickets in 3 overs to turn the game around. From being once at 2 down for 183 runs, New Zealand down to 6 wickets for 206 runs in the blink of an eye.
Meanwhile after this, the Twitterati just cannot stop praising the spin bowler for brilliant bowling that has certainly turned the game around.
