New Zealand security concerns were genuine - Pakistan beat them by 5 Wickets

Recently New Zealand cricket team was in Pakistan after carrying out an elaborate security check. Yet just one hour before their first match they abandoned the tour on security concerns. That was a bad thing to do - yet they were right for Pakistan "beat them by 5 wickets" in their first match at Sharjah last night as part of the ongoing T20 World Cup Cricket tournament.

New Zealand batted first and was demolished for paltry 134 runs in 20 overs. Haris Rauf was the most successful bowler who sent for batters back to Pavilion. Coming to bat, Pakistan did have some hiccups, but attained the target in 18.4 overs and won the match by five wickets. It was Asif Ali (27* off 12 balls) and Shoaib Malik (26* off 20) who really clinched the victory from hands of New Zealanders. 

Following New Zealand's abandonment of Pakistan tour, England also followed suit and cancelled their tour to Pakistan, something for which they were much criticized by world class cricketers. Now in next part of the tournament, it leaves to be seen how the two would meet each other.
