The win moves Pakistan within one point of England in fourth place, the final semi-final spot, in the table with matches against Afghanistan and Bangladesh to come. The top four teams qualify for the semi-finals. Pakistan are now sitting at seventh position in the points table with five points in six games. Pakistan have dropped as many as 14 catches in the six games they have played so far.
It was a gritty all-round team performance from Pakistan, who flew out of the blocks with Shaheen Afridi questioning New Zealand's decision to bat in overcast conditions by taking three wickets.
The Black Caps may have lost to Pakistan overnight but they are still heroes in the eyes of these adorable supporters.

Rescue workers were using saws to cut steel beams and excavators to move piles of rubble of the collapsed seven-story building. He stated on Facebook that he asked Yun Min, the governor of the Preah Sihanouk province, to resign - to which he agreed.
Neesham clouted the final ball of the innings from Wahab Riaz over the rope and they had a defendable total on a tricky surface, but needed to bowl out of their skins.
The Black Caps are unbeaten, with five wins and a washout, but have had the rub of the green in several close encounters, so we're hoping their luck runs out.
Pakistan's batsman should realise that while New Zealand have comfortably chased down below par targets against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka, they have made it hard to chase down scores in excess of 240 against Bangladesh and South Africa.
New Zealand, on the other hand, have been invincible so far and now hold the top position in the points table. Ross Taylor too has been among the runs, but openers Colin Munro and Martin Guptill have been struggling.
Boult struck early in the chase - Fakhar Zaman caught attempting a typically ambitious swipe - before Ferguson, the rubbery right-armer who has a claim to being the World Cup's fastest bowler, bounced out Imam-ul-Haq thanks to a superb diving catch by Guptill at point. But, if anything, this breakthrough Santner getting the ball to rag at the other end underlined New Zealand's error in not selecting a second spinner.
Earlier, New Zealand reached 237-6 in their 50 overs, with Jimmy Neesham hitting a career-best 97 not out while Colin de Grandhomme made 64. Star Sports is the official broadcaster of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in India and will be live telecasting all 48 matches.
