New Zealand defeat Pakistan to clear arrangement and seal highest level

Kyle Jamieson required his second five-wicket take of the match as New Zealand beat Pakistan by an innings and 176 runs in the second Test on Wednesday to clear the arrangement 2-0 and top the world rankings unexpectedly. 

The youthful paceman took 6-48 to add to his 5-69 from the primary innings as the Black Caps excused the travelers for 186 to seal an eighth consecutive home Test arrangement win with triumph inside four days at Christchurch's Hagley Oval. 

The success likewise pushed the Black Caps solidly into dispute for one of two compartments in June's debut World Test Championship last at Lord's. 

As much as player-of-the-coordinate Jamieson's fine bowling, the success was based on the sublime 238 captain Kane Williamson scored in New Zealand's just innings, which empowered the hosts to proclaim on 659-6. 

"Despite the fact that the outcome on paper was particularly in support of ourselves, we realize that when you are playing quality resistance, it's the little edges," Williamson, who was decreed player-of-the-arrangement, said after the success. 

"We won those little edges and had a touch of karma turn out well for us too." 

Pakistan oversaw 297 in the primary innings and just a phenomenal rearguard activity planned to forestall a weighty annihilation when they continued on 8-1 after Jamieson had eliminated opener Shan Masood on Tuesday night. 

Mohammad Abbas was gotten behind off a Trent Boult conveyance before Jamieson got into the swing again to send back Abid Ali and leave the vacationers working to lunch at 69-3. 

Jamieson made sure about his fourth five-wicket pull in six Tests in the subsequent meeting by excusing Haris Sohail, Azhar Ali and substitute captain Mohammad Rizwan. 

Boult excused Zafar Gohar, who made 37, to seal the triumph for New Zealand who stay unbeaten at home since being dominated by South Africa in 2016-17. 

"I'm disillusioned that I didn't get an outcome for Pakistan as they put their confidence in me," regretted Rizwan, who drove without their harmed ordinary captain Babar Azam. 

"We attempted our absolute best however we didn't do well indeed. As the skipper, as a player, I assume liability."
