Jamieson bags 10 wickets as NZ beat Pakistan by an inning and 176 runs


Christchurch: New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson looked unplayable as his 10-wicket haul helped his team beat Pakistan by an inning and 176 runs in the second Test.

The 26-year-old picked three of the four wickets to fall after lunch as Pakistan went to tea on day four at 134 for seven, needing a further 228 runs to complete New Zealand’s first innings total.

Jamieson became the first pacer to take 10 wickets in a Test at Hagley Oval as he had figures of 5/33 with 5/69 in the first innings.

The visitors resumed the day at 8/1 and needed better resistance by the batters to salvage a draw after day three’s humiliation.

Boult took the first wicket, dismissing nightwatchman Mohammad Abbas out for three in the fifth over.

Then Jamieson removed Abid Ali for 26 to go with his dismissal of Shan Masood the previous evening and Pakistan went to lunch at 69/3.

Jamieson dismissed Haris Sohail (15) and Azhar Ali (37) caught behind and bowled Pakistan captain Mohammad Rizwan (10) to have the tourists at 98-6.

Boult came back for his second wicket of the day when he dismissed Fawad Alam for 16, leaving Faheem Ashraf, not out for 21. Faheem couldn’t continue for long and walked off after scoring 28.

Debutant Zafar Gohar resisted a bit and scored 37 with the help of seven boundaries.
