That is all we have for you. You can relive the day's play through Devashish Fuloria's report, and perhaps some press conferences in due time. But for now, this is Alagappan Muthu signing off
"Definitely, really tough circumstances to play the Test," says Brendon McCullum. "Our thoughts were elsewhere. Proud of the guys for sticking together. I think the tone was set with the way we bowled on the second morning. They were 280 for 3, we were behind the eight ball and for us to take seven wickets for not a lot of runs. The circumstances in Australia made us go out there and try and enjoy whatever we could from the game. And it obviously gave a huge chance to set the Test up. Not an easy place to tour, we watched the Aussie series keenly. We were destroeyed in the first Test. We're pleased to come back like this and hopefully we do well in the one-day series and with the world cup around the corner. I think it's his last Test match, he said he could do more if his workload was like this Test. It's great to have his family here, he's been a great for us and we love him to bits"
Mark Craig is the Man of the Match for his 10 wickets in the Test, and a fifty. "Big turnaround from the first Test. It was nice. Didn't really think, it was hard being out there playing. Boys just tried to stick together and wickets just happened. Not thinking about bowling and just letting the ball go was a big help" Mohammad Hafeez is the Man of the Series
"After starting very well during the first day, whatever happened in the second day that was really difficult to concentrate. I was struggling to concentrate, it was really difficult to bat on and carry on," Misbah-ul-Haq says, "The way we played Test cricket was really awesome. Only in this Test match, one bad day and we were totally out of it. Full credit to New Zealand, they out played us in the way they batted. You lose some focus, little loss in concentration and things happen and once momentum goes it is difficult to turn it back. Lot of positives, specially in bowling and batting. In these two series the way everyone scored runs and got hundreds, today's knock from Asad, that hundred was a big plus as well. It's difficult to say anything at the moment, obviously I've been thinking about my future. A big event is coming up, I'm focussing on the World Cup and I'm really thinking about what to do after that. Lets see what I decide in the next couple of months"
It's been an emotional week in cricket, the second day was abandoned and McCullum read a teary-eyed tribute to Phillip Hughes on television yesterday. It almost seemed like his double-century was fueled by angst. There was barely any celebrations when he reached the landmarks he did. This time though there was a happy smile on his face as he embraced his team-mates after squaring the series 1-1
4.20 pm Hugs all around for New Zealand. They've played the game they knew they could, and have beaten Pakistan on their adopted turf in four days. Daniel Vettori leads the team off the ground in what might well be his final Test. And his family's in the crowd, clapping heartily. Trent Boult made the early breakthroughs with the new ball, and then the spinners managed to keep the Pakistan middle-order silent. Well, all except Asad Shafiq who made a top-class century, full off authoritative strikes down the ground and rasping cuts behind point.
Mohsin: "in his short career, Rahit ali Inlvolved in 3, 50 Partnerships. and manage to give support to Sarfraz and Shafiq to score hundreds and Younis to score a double."
Sooryanarayanan: "With this win I've gotta say that this Kiwi team is bound for great things...... Baz as a skipper has been nothing less than outstanding........The world's got to watch out for a great team in the making.........."
Rishabh: "The turning point was the spin veteran, Vettori getting the runs veteran Younis Khan in the 1st innings. Was downhill since then for Pak. Heartbreaking to see them in the twilight of their careers..."
Zulfiqar Babar is at the non-strikers' end because the batsmen crossed
Zulfiqar Khan: "Asad has scored exactly 100 runs with boundries. "
Five men on the boundary, three around the bat
Ash: "Boys...speaking of records...was thinking the number of different batsman to hit a six in the kiwi innings(7) might be a record as we'll" Just short of it actually. It was the second instance of seven batsman hitting a at least one six in the same Test innings.
