ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan felicitated  the national cricket team on a thumping  six-wicket win against previously unbeaten New Zealand at Edgbaston on Wednesday.

Imran Khan took to Twitter to share his congratulatory message for the cricket team, saying: "Congratulations to our cricket team for a great comeback. Congratulations especially go to Babar, Haris and Shaheen for their brilliant performances."

Babar Azam hit a sparkling century as Pakistan kept alive their hopes of reaching the ICC World Cup semi-finals with an impressive six-wicket win against New Zealand in must-win game.

Paceman Shaheen Shah Afridi took three quick wickets to leave the  Black Caps in desperate trouble at 46-4.

Sarfaraz Ahmed's side appeared down and out with only one win in their first five matches but they have bounced back strongly to beat South Africa and now  New Zealand.
