    Pakistan batting collapse hands NZ a 123-run victory in the 3rd Test; NZ win series by 2-1 margin

    Excellent victory for New Zealand.

    Pakistan's batting collapse on Day 5 could have been avoided but I dont think we have the resources for that.

    Outstanding bowling by New Zealand bowlers with 3 wickets apiece for Southee, Patel and Somerville; Scores NZ 274 & 353/7d, Pakistan 348 & 156 (56.1 ov, target 280)

    Spineless batsmen. All three of Hafeez, Azhar and Shafiq hid behind Younus Khan and Misbah.

    Tough days ahead fellas.

    Thankfully Hafeez has retired.

    Sadly Azahr and Shafiq represent our batting backbone. Besides the two our tail needs a spanking too. In the past our tail used to hand in good performances from time to time.

    Imam,Bilal and even Babar cant become a part of A team if its selected on merit let alone the main team.
    How can they leapfrogged Abid,Kashif,Fawad/Usman/Saad in the test side is unjustifiable.

    A befitting farewell actually to the worst player ever in Pakistan cricket to play for such a long time. He doesn't have any shame left actually,the chucker caught red handed 3 times, can't play a ball with slightest of swing, will still continue in Pakistan jersey in other 2 formats !!??

    Pakistani selectors and mangement are the sole culprit to destroy Pakistan cricket. A hack,a chucker like Hafeez , Asad, Shehzad,Azhar ,trundler and spray masters like Wahab,Anwar,Rahat gets numerous chances but real talented and domestic performers are overlooked and even if selected they are gone into Oblivion after one or two failures.

    Pakistan has also won several and quite a lot of Away Test series in New zealand 1973,1993,2004,2011 to name a few and some draws as well over their back yard 1989,2009 etc.

    We did not let them win for 49 years. Everything comes to an end. That is part and parcel of game.

    Congrats Sarfraz, Inzi and Mickey on an excellent job during this test series. You pathetic selections, mindsets and game plans worked a treat to hand NZ the series.

    Sarfraz whinging about lack of runs from the tail sums it up! our batsmen are poor under pressure, never mind the tail.

    The fact that Pakistan have now started losing games in UAE, once their fortress, is proof that our test batting is not of international standard. Only 1 or 2 players are performing. Bowling also looked off colour in NZís second innings but where the game was lost was in the first innings when our late middle order failed to take a first innings lead of 150-200 having surpassed the NZ score with 7 wickets remaining. We are a mediocre test and ODI side right now, only good in T20Is where again it is the bowlers that win us games. Perhaps time to relieve Sarfraz of test captaincy duties.

    Well played boys! KW performing like this despite the big break shows what a class act he is. Somerville and Ajaz should make for a great spin duo in the subcontinent. I fancy a series win in Sri Lanka and possibly Bangladesh. India is nigh impossible though.

    New Zealand Win First Away Test Series Against Pakistan In 49 Years

    Debutant Will Somerville grabbed three key wickets to guide New Zealand to their first away series win over Pakistan in 49 years with a crushing 123-run win in the third and final Test on Friday. The off-spinner took 3-52 and was aided by fellow spinner Ajaz Patel's 3-42 as Pakistan came up well short after being set a daunting 280-run target in 79 overs. They crumbled to 156 in 56.1 overs on a weary pitch at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The victory gave New Zealand a 2-1 series win after they had taken the first Test by a narrow four-run margin at the same venue. Pakistan bounced back with an innings and 16-run win in the second Test in Dubai.

    New Zealand's last away series win against Pakistan was a 1-0 victory in matches played in Pakistan in 1969.

    It was the Black Caps' fifth Test series win in their last six played since November 2016. They beat Pakistan, Bangladesh, the West Indies and England -- all at home -- with the single loss came against South Africa.

    Somerville, who took 4-75 in the first innings to finish with seven wickets in the match, broke a stubborn 43-run sixth-wicket stand between top scorer Babar Azam (51) and skipper Sarfraz Ahmed, who made 28.

    Patel ended Azam's 114-ball resistance before getting the last wicket when he dismissed Hasan Ali for four, sparking celebrations among the New Zealand players.

    Pakistan were again let down by sloppy batting.

    They were off to a disastrous start when Mohammad Hafeez, in his last innings before he retires from Test cricket, was bowled by fast bowler Tim Southee for eight.

    Match-turning innings

    Medium pacer Colin de Grandhomme had first-innings centurion Azhar Ali caught behind for five before Somerville's double strike pushed Pakistan to 55-5 at lunch.

    Somerville had Haris Sohail caught off a tentative push in the slip with his third ball of the first over for nine and next ball had first innings centurion Asad Shafiq caught behind off the glove.

    In the last over before lunch Imam-ul-Haq, watching four wickets fell at the other end, gave an easy catch to forward short-leg off Patel for 22.

    Earlier, New Zealand declared their second innings on 353-7 after some 45 minutes of batting with Henry Nicholls remaining unbeaten on 126 and Kane Williamson dismissed at his overnight score of 139.

    That 212-run stand between Williamson which brought New Zealand back into the game on Thursday, was finally broken with the very first ball of the day.

    Medium pacer Hasan Ali trapped Williamson leg before and even a review did not prolong the New Zealand skipper's innings.

    But his 283-ball knock, containing 13 boundaries, turned the match.

    Nicholls took a sharp single to complete his third Test hundred and finished with 12 hits to the ropes during his 266-ball knock.

    De Grandhomme struck two boundaries and two sixes as New Zealand added 81 runs in 45 minutes, ensuring they set up a daunting target for Pakistan.

    Leg-spinner Yasir Shah finished with 4-129 and debutant paceman Shaheen Shah Afridi took 2-85.

    This is perhaps the weakest Pakistani test team I have seen since my childhood days in the 90's. I know even India is crap away from home and I should be the last person to rub it in, but some delusional Pakistani fans like Bilal and others were going on how this team will beat India in india etc etc.

    New Zealand is the new Bogey team for Pakistan off late. What a player Willimson is. Best NZ cricketer after Sir. Hadlee

    Imam and Hafeez made us proud today again!

    This batting can't even play 70 odd overs in tests in UAE - wow. Good luck in SA with this confidence - Shabash!!!

    Inzi needs to bring his rest of the Bhateeja Bhanjas and Hafeez type sifarshis in to make us prouder.

    This series proved Yasir is the best spinner in the world for me by some stretch, he single handily wrecked us in the second Test. Very few bowlers can have that kind of impact. Pakistan just need to find some reliable batsmen to fill the huge void YK and Misbah have left.

    Kane, Nicols and Somerville were all brilliant.

    Another abysmal performance from our so called batting line up. Just don't understand what happens to them when batting last. Those telling us how good Babar Azam is need a reality check although his 51 was a decent performance. We would have most likely won the match had Kohli been in your side. I shudder to think what South Africa is gonna do to our brittle batting on tracks we have historically struggled on. Congrats to NZ on a well deserved win, take nothing away from them. Again the bowling was good but the batting keeps letting us down. IK please take note with the WC being around the corner.

    When was the last time a Pakistani Test team successfully batted through the final day for a draw?

    It appears that its been ages. Everytime we have had to bat in the final innings we have lost the game brutally. The last instance which comes to my mind is the 2nd test against NZ in UAE in 2014.

    But this goes to show how poor the quality of cricket and cricketers Pakistan has been playing for such a long period of time. The team cannot even play out of their skins to bat for a draw on the final day.

    The ineffectiveness of the Pakistani bowlers on Day 4 has to be blamed as well

    Just saw the Pakistani batting innings and i am shocked to see the NZ spinners getting more spin and bounce and in fact bowling with more pace than the Pakistani spin trio of Yasir and Bilal Asif who just looked very flat, slow and ineffective on Day 4. Granted they were up against one of the best batsmen in the world but there was no excuse at all to have no answers to someone like Henry Nichole in your own bowling conditions. But then again these bowlers don't have someone like Williamson captaining them either.

    Even a dud like Grandhome looked more effective than the Pakistani pacers on this wicket.

    This series also exposed the huge captaincy and ability to think on your feet and about the game gap between Williamson and Sarfaraz.

    How will you compare him with ash against nz series 2016-17 ?
    His figures were 4-93, 6-132, 1-33, 3-82, 6-81, 7-59 in 6 innings (had to share wkts with jadeja). Dominating 3-0 whitewash on the back of his MoS performance.

    The most disappointing thing is the senior players. Hafeez, Azhar, Asad, and Sarfraz should've been there for Pakistan. YK and Misbah were pillars for us and unfortunately expected the same from our current seniors

    Overall, Ashwin had the greater impact as he helped his team attain a whitewash. But he also had a gun batting lineup that allowed scoreboard pressure to mount on NZ.

    Yasir still took two more wickets and single-handingly won the Second Test to square the series.

    So, from an individual standpoint, Yasir was slightly better but from a team-oriented viewpoint, Ashwin comes out on top.

    You can't have watched much Test cricket if you don't understand that it's significantly more difficult batting last, especially on SC wickets. Very strange comment to make.

    To be fair, NZ gave it to Pakistan on a plate in the 2nd test. They were absolutely pathetic in that first innings getting bowled out for 90, they threw away the test in 1 innings.

    If not for Yasir, I believe NZ would have won 3-0.

    It is always "very difficult" for us to bat last. Top teams can bat anywhere when required. Stop making cheap excuses to justify our failures and inability.

    Stop making stupid statements like 'just don't understand what happens to them when batting last' then, and I won't then have to remind you that batting 4th is well understood to be the most difficult time.

    Besides, NZ are a stronger test side, so it's no surprise it was another close series. They drew 1-1 in 2014 against a stronger Pakistan side.

    There is nothing stupid attacking our pathetic batting that repeatedly fails us!! Top teams can bat anywhere and everywhere which is something your ignorance does not allow you to see! Knowing our vulnerabilities the opposition winning the toss will naturally make us bat last. I stand by what I said that what happens to our batsmen who are supposed to be be of Test quality that they collapse every time? NZ are so strong that they did not defeat us "away" for almost 50 years. Your excuse that batting poorly in the last innings is normal shows you accept mediocrity as being acceptable.

    Yeah, that's why 400 has only ever been chased 2-3 times batting 4th in the history of Test cricket. Stop humiliating yourself. All teams find batting last much more difficult. Go read about Test history.

    Sometime you just have to accept they were beaten by a better team.

    Yasir, Ali, Abbas & Babar would be the only ones who would make the NZ team in these conditions. And only Yasir & Ali (and only possibly Abbas, but he's unproven) if it was in NZ conditions.

    Great Post. Pakistan have done well in the series and have a selection of very young and or inexperienced players.

    Shah showed he is the best spinner going, babar improved yet again, and lots of other positive BUT nz are an exceptional side. They are a very good test team and have lots of experience to rely on.

    Obvious selection issues and we shouldn't buryour heads in the sand. Zaman needs to return, shadab should be picked if fit and salahuddin should be picked again.

    Oh and a return for Amir must be certain.

    Nothing humiliating at all! Once again top teams can bat anywhere! What you are saying is that we should depend on the toss to win or lose the match! That we should be happy having lost the match by 123 runs coz the opposition put us in!! When batting last we lose almost all the time coz our batsmen can't handle any pressure at all. Look how well India do it compared to our failed lot to see the difference. No Pak batsman will make it in the NZ team at all.
