Daryl Mitchell’s powerful six during the 2nd T20I against Pakistan in Hamilton not only smashed the ball straight down the ground but broke a camera in the process.
During the 2nd New Zealand vs. Pakistan T20I at Seddon Park in Hamilton, Daryl Mitchell delivered a powerful six that not only sailed straight down the ground but also inadvertently broke a camera. In the tenth over of New Zealand’s innings, facing Abbas Afridi’s fuller delivery, Mitchell’s shot collided with the camera.
The cameraperson, initially displaying frustration by dropping the microphone and walking back, soon turned the moment into comedy as he burst into laughter and returned to his position. Babar Azam, who was positioned in the field, went to check on the cameraman’s well-being and was seen exchanging handshakes after.
New Zealand secured a victory with a margin of 21 runs in the match. Earlier, opting to bowl first after winning the toss, Pakistan’s captain Shaheen Afridi witnessed New Zealand’s explosive start, but the Kiwis lost momentum in the middle overs, finishing with 194 for 8 in 20 overs.
Devon Conway’s standout contribution of 74 off 41 balls anchored the innings. However, skipper Kane Williamson’s injury, as he pulled his hamstring, marked a turning point, and subsequent batsmen struggled to convert starts into significant scores.
Pakistan faced their second consecutive failure in chasing a target, this time a more achievable one. Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam showcased impressive hitting, scoring fifties and putting Pakistan in a strong position. However, the momentum shifted after Fakhar Zaman’s dismissal, leading to another collapse in the middle order. Despite Babar Azam’s efforts, his wicket, along with Shaheen Afridi’s, proved decisive, sealing the fate of the game.
