New Zealand vs Pakistan Live Score 3rd T20I: New Zealand have won six out of the seven matches they have played against Pakistan on this tour.

That's a big incentive for the Pakistanis, who have been in dismal form on the tour of New Zealand.

New Zealand won two tests, two one-day internationals and three Twenty20 internationals against the West Indies, then blanked Pakistan 5-0 in a one-day global series before winning the first match of the three-match T20 series against Pakistan by seven wickets.

The home team has outplayed Pakistan along the length and breadth of the country.

Throughout the streak there has been a feeling New Zealand's performances have been inflated by the weakness of its opposition.

Antonio Conte chuckles over Chelsea's historic trend
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is keeping his head down amid reports that there is a break in relations with Blues leadership. Conte says he predicted a hard campaign last summer, when he said Chelsea must avoid a "Mourinho season".

Wayne Taylor Racing beats Staff Penske for pole at Rolex
Despite the qualifying position, Alonso knows he and co-drivers Lando Norris and Phil Hanson have plenty of time to make it up. Brown juggles running United Autosport, the team he owns, with his job running one of the most storied teams in F1.

Mourinho signs new contract at United
Rather, he is stationed up high and looks to be more of an outlet when United try to counter, with his dribbling capabilities. I hope that Sanchez's arrival doesn't mean that Marcus Rashford will be edged out of the team.

Meanwhile, Ish Sodhi may be ranked the world's best T20I bowler - although that didn't help him on the opening day of the IPL auction - but it feels inevitable that Shadab Khan will be ranked there someday.

The series decider T20 will start at 11.00am Pakistan Standard Time (PST).

New Zealand have brought in Ross Taylor for the injured Colin Munro, and Tom Blundell for the dropped Glenn Phillips.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson admitted he wished to bat first, too, but believed the conditions would remain good for batting throughout the game. Tim Southee is also likely to return for the last match.
