NZ vs PAK, 3rd T20 : A century of Allen-Seifert

Following Devon Conway’s early seven-wicket dismissal, Tim Seifert and Allen combined for a strong partnership of 125 runs for the second wicket, with Seifert providing cover to keep Allen’s hard-hitting strokes going. Throughout his inning, Allen’s power hits were so strong that the umpires had to change the ball three times. After eventually getting rid of the unyielding Allen in the eighteenth over with an off-cutter, Zaman Khan was greeted with acclaim by the bowler as he departed the pitch.
