56.1 - A Patel to H Ali
Ajaz Patel to Hasan Ali. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to point, by Williamson. How fitting that the captain takes the winning catch. Straight up into the air and New Zealand take a famous victory to win the series 2-1. Their first series win in Asia for a decade and their first away series victory over Pakistan in 49 years. An all round team effort with the batsmen standing up when it was required and then the spinners played their part, along with Tim Southee. Debutant Will Somerville finished with seven wickets in the match while Ajaz Patel also chipped in with five of his own. A special mention also to the Kiwi coach who gets his first win in charge.Pakistan were just not up to the challenge today and they will be disappointed to send Mohammad Hafeez off with a loss. A brilliant career though and one with many other happier memories.Well that is the end of a long tour. Both sides had positives to take out of it with New Zealand taking the Test series while Pakistan dominated the white ball part. Big tours upcoming now with New Zealand going back home while Pakistan travel to South Africa. See you then.
