Pakistan cricket team made a brilliant comeback, having lost 6 matches on the trot in the series, to win the T20 series against New Zealand and rise to the top of the rankings.
The first half of the tour proved to be a nightmare for Pakistani players and fans alike, however, the team suddenly sprung back into their Champions Trophy mood and never looked back, easily winning the last two T20s to end the tour on a high.
Social media, which criticized Sarfraz and his men for poor performance in the One Day International (ODI) series, is now praising the grit shown by the team to overcome New Zealand in their stronghold.
You all don't come to our cricket grounds because you think we are a dangerous country, We keep coming to your grounds to prove we are a dangerous team actually !! NUMBER 1 t20 team in the world, PAKISTAN !!! #PakvsNz

Not many teams are capable of pulling off such a fightback
One word perfectly sums up Pakistani cricket team: unpredictable.
Have you ever seen a team this unpredictable?😂 Well Played Fakhar Zaman & Ahmed Shehzad for giving an excellent start and kudos to Babar Azam n Sarfaraz for continuing the rhythm. One minute down,next minute up..That's the best someone has said about this team!#NZvPAK #PAKvsNZ

We won’t let anyone forget what we did to India in Champions Trophy.
Thoroughly deserved the number 1 ranking.
