New Zealand win first away Test

Daily Observer (Jamaica) - - SPORT -

re­tires from Test cricket, was bowled by fast bowler Tim Southee for eight.

Medium pacer Colin de Grand­homme had first-in­nings cen­tu­rion Azhar Ali caught be­hind for five be­fore Somerville’s dou­ble strike pushed Pak­istan to 55-5 at lunch.

Somerville had Haris So­hail caught off a ten­ta­tive push in the slip with his third ball of the first over for nine and next ball had first in­nings cen­tu­rion Asad Shafiq caught be­hind off the glove.

In the last over be­fore lunch Imam-ul-haq, watch­ing four wick­ets fall at the other end, gave an easy catch to for­ward short-leg off Pa­tel for 22.

Ear­lier, New Zealand de­clared their sec­ond in­nings on 353-7 af­ter some 45 min­utes of bat­ting with Henry Ni­cholls re­main­ing un­beaten on 126 and Kane Wil­liamson dis­missed at his overnight score of 139.

That 212-run stand be­tween Wil­liamson which brought New Zealand back into the game on Thurs­day, was fi­nally bro­ken with the very first ball of the day.

Medium pacer Hasan Ali trapped Wil­liamson leg be­fore and even a re­view did not pro­long the New Zealand skip­per’s in­nings.

But his 283-ball knock, con­tain­ing 13 bound­aries, turned the match.
