Coach Arthur calls on beaten Pakistan to toughen up for Tests

  • Shah who dropped Williamson twice now has 27 wickets in the series

A superb 123-run triumph over Pakistan gave the Black Caps a 2-1 series win - their first away test series victory against Pakistan since the summer of 69.

After the conclusion of their three-Test match series, New Zealand and Pakistan have moved in opposite directions in the updated International Cricket Council (ICC) Test team rankings.

Heading into the final Test of the series, Shah needed just five more scalps to break the record - which he did easily during the fourth day's play by picking up the wicket of William Somerville (4) in the second innings.

"It was fantastic. Beating Pakistan in their backyard is very tough". They showed how strong they are in Dubai [in the second Test] and turned us over pretty easily, so to bounce back and win a decider is pretty special.

Joining forces at 60-4, still trailing Pakistan by 14 runs, the pair added 212 - the highest fifth-wicket partnership for the Black Caps against Pakistan.

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

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

Gilets jaunes: le dispositif de sécurité a "fuité"
Ce vendredi soir, nombre de policiers ne cachaient pas leur agacement et leur inquiétude à la vue de cette fuite . Il s'agit d'une note technique qui fait l'objet d'une large diffusion", a précisé la préfecture de police.

Bangladesh absolutely dominated an admittedly poor West Indian team in two tests last month, and are probably set to be a tougher challenge than Sri Lanka.

Any thoughts Pakistan might have had of chasing down New Zealand's total - and they do seem laughably naïve now - were extinguished soon after, when Azhar Ali edged behind off Colin de Grandhomme.

After that, it was the spinners' time to shine.

Somerville, who claimed 4-75 in the first innings, struck twice in two balls to remove Haris Sohail and the in-form Asad Shafiq to heap the pressure on Sarfraz Ahmed's side.

Patel got opener Imam-ul-Haq caught close to the wicket on 22 at the stroke of lunch as Pakistan limped to the interval on 55-5.

Babar Azam tried to steady the ship with a fighting half-century, but the Kiwis ran through the Pakistan tail to secure victory. Patel created the most drift and turn of all the spinners in the test, and worked well in tandem with Somerville, who offered up different speeds, and significant bounce.

Debutant William Somerville took 3-52 to end up with a match haul of seven wickets.

After 15 consecutive overs of spin, Somerville broke through, firing through a quicker delivery - too quick for Sarfraz, who was caught on the back foot and couldn't chop down in time to avoid being bowled.
