Chasing 164 for a win, New Zealand were driven by the century partnership between Seifert and Williamson for the second wicket.
Seifert began with a cracking drive off Shaheen Shah Afridi in the first over, carrying his form from the first T20I into the game. Martin Guptill looked in good touch for his 21 before miscuing a pull shot to gift a catch to the deep fielder.
Williamson had a nervy edge to start off with on his return, and the duo played it safe until the end of powerplay with just 46 coming off the first six overs. It seemed to be a cue for Seifert to open up and he did so with aplomb, collecting three sixes in the first over after the Powerplay. Wahab Riaz was at the receiving end of some outstanding hitting.
