Pakistan all-rounder Shadab Khan showed off his brilliant fielding skills as he held onto an absolute blinde r to dismiss New Zealand's  Mark Chapman in the fourth T20I of the five-match series. Playing at the  Gaddafi Stadium, in Lahore, the Blackcaps batting first, posted a  178-run total on the back of quality knocks from  Tim Robinson,  Dean Foxcroft and the captain  Michael Bracewell.  

But the score could have been far higher if Mark Chapman, coming off after a blistering  42-ball 87 in the third T20I, managed to spend some time in the middle. But the Southpaw was denied this opportunity thanks to  Shadab Khan's magic in the field.

The Pakistani bowlers had a decent outing in Lahore with five out of the six bowlers picking up a wicket. But the star with the ball was speedster Abbas Afridi, who picked up three wickets in his three-over spell while giving away 20 runs. Talking about this performance, Afridi thanked Pakistan legend Umar Gul for helping him improve his bowling.

Speaking in the mid-innings interview, Afridi said, "The way the wicket was, it was on the slower side so I focused on variations and bowling cutters. Credit to Umar Gul for helping me improve my bowling skills. The wicket is good, our batters are in form, hopefully, we will chase this score."
