58.4 W

OUT! New Zealand win by 4 runs. What a Test match! Azhar Ali looks devastated as the Ball Tracker shows the ball to be hitting the top of middle. The decision will remain and Pakistan have imploded quite spectacularly again! The ball was landing on leg and turns enough to beat the outside edge of Azhar Ali who was ahead to defend this one. It goes on to hit his back leg and the umpire thinks a bit before raising his finger. Pakistan had to review but unfortunately for Azhar, it just wasn't his day. It's been a great innings but just couldn't hold his nerve to cross the line in the end. On the other hand though, credit must go to the visitors who came spitting fire after Lunch! And also to some crazy running between Babar Azam and Azhar Ali which began this downfall. The Black Caps will have to be given a lot of appreciation for their 'never-say-die' attitude.
