New Zeland is leading the 3 Match Test series by 1-0

The easy looking overnight victory turned nightmare for Pakistan on day 4 of the 1st Test match at Abu Dhabi. Home side sits comfortably at the end of Day 3, but things changed completely in the favor of New Zeland in the 2nd session of Day 4. Debut left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel emerges as the new hero for New Zeland, He spoils the party of Pakistan with his maiden 5 for in the 2nd innings. Visitors captain Kane Williamson made a smart captaincy by exposing Pakistan batsman weakness against Left-arm spinners. Ajaz was exceptional with his line and length, the 30-year-old spinner forced green gang lower order batsmen to play low percentage shot and lose their wickets.

Pakistan lower order could not resist in front of the left-arm spinner as they gift their wicket to him by playing poor short, they justify their tag of unpredictable by failing to chase yet another target on the board.

Brief score:

NZ 153, 249

PAK 227, 171-all out (58.4 Ovs)
