England tour of Pakistan 1977/78

New Zealand 1 England 1

England in Pakistan and New Zealand, 1977-78

If judged solely by a playing record of only one victory in six Test matches, a first-ever defeat by New Zealand, and two drawn series, England's twin tour in the vastly different conditions of Pakistan and New Zealand could be dismissed as a failure

Third Test Match

New Zealand v England

The provision of an extra day was insufficient to achieve on outright result, and the match and the series ended in a draw.

Second Test Match

New Zealand v England

Despite a wretched start, England gained a swift and sweeping revenge for the Wellington defeat.
