Right then! That is all that we have for you. New Zealand have been comprehensive in both the Test matches and have deservedly won the series 2-0 to the good. With this victory, they have also reached the first position in the World Test Championship Table and they will be happy with how things have panned out. Pakistan, on the other hand, showed sparks but were not able to turn that into anything tangible and they will go back and ponder about how they can improve. We enjoyed having your company throughout our coverage. Until next time, goodbye and take care!
The New Zealand skipper, Kane Williamson has been named as the Player of the Series! He starts off by saying that it was an incredible couple of games and that they were up against a quality side and even though the result was in their favour, it was a game of small margins and that they converted that into good partnerships and they are pleased and it is a proud moment for the team. Praises Mitchell and Jamieson for their performances in this game and also adds that Daryl has not played in his natural role but their attitude has been amazing and they have grabbed the opportunity that came their way. Feels that it was a battle and that the Pakistan bowlers bowled well and that partnership with Nicholls was great, that too, with a pulled calf muscle and it was nice to be out there. Tells that it was great to put in a strong first innings total.
The Pakistani skipper, Mohammad Rizwan starts off by saying that as a captain, he takes the responsibility and that fielding is an important part of the game and if you want to win Test matches, you need to field well. Adds that he is happy with their performance in the last test and the T20I series. Adds that it is an honor for him to lead Pakistan and that they tried their very best. Says that they have learnt a lot of things from this series. Praises the New Zealand cricket team for their performance and says that Jamieson was the difference between the two sides.
Kyle Jamieson has been named as the Player of the Match! He starts off by saying that they had to work hard for the wickets and as a bowling unit, they were clinical throughout the day. Adds that they have a four pronged pace attack and he feels as though he could be the fourth prong. Says that it was good to sit back and watch them do their thing and observe what these guys have done for a number of years.
The Pakistani openers had 11 overs to play with at the end of Day 3 and they lost Shan Masood heading into Day 4. And in the penultimate day, it was all Jamieson again, who scalped 6 wickets to his name and Pakistan were bowled out for 186. A well deserved victory for the hosts and they will be very happy. Stay tuned for the presentation...
After this, it was all New Zealand. They came out to bat in the first innings with intent and that showed. They lost three wickets quickly and were at 71/3 at one stage. But then the duo of Williamson and Nicholls stitched an amazing partnership of 369 runs for the fourth wicket, which also saw Kane reach his fourth double century and Nicholls reach his 7th International Test century. After these two fell, Daryl Mitchell took it upon himself to prove a point as he and Jamieson went hammer and tongs and in that process, Mitchell also reached his maiden Test century for the Black Caps. All these batting contributions saw the Kiwis end up 659 on the board with a lead of 362 runs to their name.
Rewinding the clock slightly, Pakistan were put to bat first in the first innings. It was all about Azhar Ali who held fort at one end and watched his teammates depart one after the other. Then, he got a good partner in Rizwan and together these two played some good cricket and steadied the ship for the visitors. Ali reached his 93 but was not able to cross that triple digit mark, while Rizwan reached his half-century. After both of them fell, good contributions from Zafar and Ashraf saw them reach a competitive total of 297. It was Kyle Jamieson who was the star with the ball in hand, who grabbed a 5-fer. Southee and Boult too, snared a couple of wickets to their name.
A comprehensive show with the bat, with the ball and all around the field has ensured that the Kiwis win this game by an innings and 176 runs and they also complete the whitewash over their sub-continent counterparts as they win the Test series 2-0. Kane Williamson should be pleased with how his boys have fared in this series. This win also sees them top the World Test Championship Table. Chants of 'Number one, Number one' are ringing around the ground. Terrific stuff from the Black Caps.

Trent Boult To Zafar Gohar OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! THAT'S THAT! Boult grabs the last wicket! He bowls this full and on the pads, Gohar looks to flick this one but does so uppishly towards the fine leg region. Henry is the man there and he takes this one nicely. NEW ZEALAND WIN BY AN INNINGS AND 176 RUNS!

Tim Southee To Zafar Gohar
BYE. Full and outside off, Gohar looks to swings at it but misses it. It goes towards the keeper where Watling tries to hit the stumps at his end and he hits it as well but Naseem was in. He was asleep in that moment and by the time he realized what was happening, the batsmen took a bye.

Short delivery on middle, Gohar pulls it through mid-wicket for a couple. It could have been a run out as Santner collected the ball in the deep and had a throw to Southee, who in turn tried to have a shy at the stumps but he missed.

Kane Williamson To Shaheen Afridi OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! The skipper picks up one wicket! Kane's first wicket as the Kiwi captain as well so this will mean special to him! Floated around off, Shaheen gets low and looks to slog sweep this one but the ball goes off the top edge, right next to the keeper. Taylor is the man there and he takes it easily. The Kiwis need just a single wicket now to win the game.
