New Zealand’s Matt Henry picked up a hat-trick in the first T20I against Pakistan in Lahore.
Henry had derailed Pakistan’s innings in the 13th over with the wickets of Shadab Khan and Iftikhar Ahmed off back-to-back deliveries.
Shadab was caught by Latham off the penultimate ball of the over and Itikhar fell next ball, edging again to the wicketkeeper.
The pace bowler returned in the 19th over to dismiss Shaheen Afridi off the first ball, caught brilliantly near the ropes by Daryl Mitchell.
Henry finished with 3-32, his career-best figures in T20Is, and became just the fourth New Zealand bowler to take a hat-trick in T20Is.
