Chapman leads the chase with century as New Zealand storm back to draw against Pakistan in T20I series

Mark Chapman scored an unbeaten 104 runs in 57 balls as the New Zealand cricket team chased down the target of 194 runs to beat Pakistan by six wickets in the fifth T20 international in Rawalpindi on Monday. This led to a series between New Zealand and Pakistan. The New Zealand cricket team was on 73 runs at the loss of 4 wickets while chasing that target of 193 runs, but Chapman and all-rounder Jimmy's partnership led the visitors over the line with 4 balls to spare and no further losses.
This was the second-highest successful run chase by the New Zealand cricket team in T20s. Neesham told the reporters in Rawalpindi that "I think we were a little bit under the pump there after the first 10 overs of our innings. Myself and Chappy decided we'd either go down fighting and get bowled out or give it a good crack. I think Chappy batted outstandingly; he's been hitting the ball beautifully over the last two or three weeks. He further said, "To walk away from a series two-all against a very, very good team at home is pretty pleasing.
Left-hand batsman Mark Chapman enjoyed his tour of Pakistan as he got dismissed only once in five innings and scored around 290 runs in five matches of the T20 series.
