Pakistan won by an innings and 324 runs
player of the match

This is the fifth highest margin test victory, NZ's worst loss and 5th worst as measured by innings rather than runs

Well expectedly the day started with New Zealand losing wickets quickly and Shoaib grabbed 2 more to end with 6 for 11 his best performance and is on a hat-trick in his next game

New Zealand had to follow on after their 2nd lowest total against Pakistan and the lowest at Lahore

Batting next it was a far more resolute display and Pakistan did miss Shoaib out with an ankle injury

Good batting by Richardson, Fleming and Vincnet with a fine 43 from Harris was not sufficient to prevent the loss

Kaneria was most effective as the wicket was taking some spin, giving him five for 110

This was a good performance for Pakistan to win a test at home after a bad spell recently

The next and final test of this series will be on 8th May at Karachi

We have some ceremonies cming up

Cermonies on and vip's introduced and Fleming called in to say, We messed about and had no penetration, gave runs too steadily and when we cam we were hit by accuracy and pace

Does not complain at all about the weather, wants to play better in Karachi, says his innings was nice and I got to spend soe time there, dismissed softly

Waqar on and says its great to break the 12 year drought at Lahore, thanks his team and Kaneria, says batting was good and pleased with Inz and Imran

Is happy with Inz's feat will think of team later for Karachi

The Man of the Match decision on Proctor, mentions Shoaib and selected Inzamam

Inz says he could sleep last night as he cannot believe he did get to 329, he said I still cannot believe it, is glad the team is batting well and says he will continue to try to play as best as he can
