New Zealand sent a warning to its rivals ahead of the Twenty20 Cricket World Cup when it beat Pakistan by 95 runs on Friday to clinch the three-match series 2-1.
It was the last Twenty20 international for New Zealand and Pakistan before the tournament in India in March, with the Kiwis confident after back-to-back wins.
Pakistan won the first match by 16 runs before New Zealand stormed the second by 10 wickets with a world record 171 partnership between Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson. The hosts maintained that form to win equally emphatically on Friday.
Corey Anderson produced an outstanding allround performance with an unbeaten 82 to lead New Zealand to 196-5 as it batted first and took 2-17 as New Zealand dismissed Pakistan for 101 in 16.1 overs.
