Pakistan wrap up convincing win in first Test vs NZ

January 09, 2011 13:31 IST

Pakistan completed a thumping 10-wicket victory in the first Test over New Zealand inside three days after they had bowled the hosts out for just 110 in their second innings after the tea break.

The visitors had been given a victory target of just 19 runs after they established a 92-run first innings lead earlier on Sunday before left-arm spinner Abdul Rehman was again the principle tormenter of New Zealand's batsmen, taking three wickets for 24 runs and creating enormous pressure.

Rehman also combined magnificently with left-arm pace bowler Wahab Riaz, who ended with three for 38, while Umar Gul mopped up the tail to finish with three for 28.

Mohamam Hafeez and Taufeeq Umar wrapped up the victory in just 3.4 overs to guide the visitors to 21-0 and a 1-0 lead in the two-match series. The second Test begins in Wellington next Saturday.
