Pakistan 37-0 after set 176 to win first Test

New Zealand celebrate after 4-run victory over Pakistan in the first Test

When the play resumed in the morning, the hosts needed only 138 more runs to take a 1-0 lead in the series but the top-order was blown away in the first hour itself as they were reduced to 48/3.

"Obviously it is disappointing. We know Pakistan have got good players of spin, but we kept chipping in there", left-armer Patel said.

"The wicket was challenging and both teams had to fight hard, and certainly Pakistan had the upper-hand, but some of the characteristics we held very dear is the attitude to fight on". Azhar Ali played with the defensive approach that also harmed Pakistan badly. He reviewed Bruce Oxenford's decision but the television replays upheld the decision.

Patel sparked a mini-collapse at the start when he trapped Imam-ul-Haq leg-before in the fifth over of the day for 27 before Ish Sodhi had Mohammad Hafeez (ten) and Haris Sohail (four) in the same over.

It was Pakistan's fourth worst collapse in their Test history.

Shafiq made a cultured 45, becoming the 11th Pakistani to reach 4,000 runs in Test cricket, but his dismissal in the last over before lunch, edging Neil Wagner to wicketkeeper BJ Watling, changed the game as Pakistan lost their final seven wickets for just 41. Pakistan lost Babar Azam to a run out soon after the lunch break and Sarfraz Ahmed's catastrophic sweep found them reeling at six down.

Yasir and Bilal Asif continued to bowl well, causing problems for the batsmen on a dry, turning surface.

Microsoft reportedly working on a low cost - no disk drive Xbox One
Microsoft is reportedly building a new Xbox device that doesn't have a disc drive and costs less than today's Xbox One S. Before those new consoles can arrive, however, Microsoft might be planning another hardware revision for the Xbox One.

The earlier measure at the crease had been replaced by chaos.

Hasan Ali and Yasir Shah grabbed five wickets for the team.

Shafiq and Azhar then took the pressure off by rotating the strike frequently with singles and twos while waiting for the loose deliveries to get boundaries.

Former New Zealand cricketer Dipak Patel.

"Our batsmen should have handled it better, given ourselves a bit of time, but we just didn't". He was the last man to out and scored 65 runs on 136 balls. A 72-run partnership between Kane Williamson and Henry Nicholls steadied the New Zealand innings as they ended with a score of 153.

Pakistan will be hurt and hope to avenge the defeat in the second Test which starts on November 24 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium but it won't find it easy against a side which has the best record in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in Tests despite their limited experience.
