High-flying Pakistan take on New Zealand in the third and final T20I at the Dubai International Stadium tonight.

The Black Caps will be looking to halt Pakistan’s winning streak, after the hosts registered their 11th consecutive T20I series win on Friday – a world record.

Pakistan lived up to their billing as the world’s best T20 team with a six-wicket victory over New Zealand in Dubai two days ago to clinch the three-match series 2-0.

Mohammad Hafeez (34, not-out) and Shoaib Malik (10) added 34 quickfire runs to help Pakistan overhaul the 154-run target in 19.4 overs at Dubai stadium, pocketing their 11th consecutive series and eighth successive T20 match.

Pakistan won the first match by two runs in a last-ball finish in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
