Watch – Hasan Ali’s stunning throw to run-out Kane Williamson
Pakistan pacer Hasan Ali produced a brilliant run-out of New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson to put the rivals on a backfoot. The right-handed was starting to flex his muscles before a hesitation to go for a single resulted in his downfall. He came out of his crease to take one run but Hasan Ali was super quick and before Williamson could return back to his crease, a direct hit from the bowler ended his innings.
Kane scored 25 runs off 26 balls against the Men in Green. Earlier, Babar Azam won the toss and elected to field first. New Zealand suffered a setback ahead of the match as Lockie Ferguson was ruled of the tournament due to a torn calf.
