8/41 - Yasir Shah's figures are the best by a bowler in UAE Tests. Devendra Bishoo's 8 for 49 in Dubai two years ago was the previous best. Yasir's figures are the third-best by a Pakistan bowler, behind Abdul Qadir's 9 for 56 and Sarfraz Nawaz's 9 for 86.

0 - No one has bettered Yasir's bowling figures in Tests against New Zealand. Yasir edged past South Africa's Goofy Lawrence, who had figures of 8 for 53 in Johannesburg in 1961-62.

40 - New Zealand lost their last 10 wickets for 40 after being 50 for no loss. These are the joint-least added by a side after putting together an opening stand of at least 50. In 2001, New Zealand had a similar collapse against Pakistan in Auckland. On that occasion, they slipped from 91 for 0 to 131 all out.

5 - These are the least runs added by a side from their Nos. 4 to 11. Six of the eight batsmen fell for ducks to make it the first such instance in Test history.

9.3 - Yasir's strike rate, as he picked eight wickets in 75 deliveries. These are the sixth-best strike rate by a Test bowler with an eight-for. The other five instances are all courtesy England bowlers; four of whom are senior citizens. Stuart Broad picked eight wickets in 9.3 overs during the 2015 Ashes in England.

6 - Ducks by New Zealand batsmen, the joint-most in a Test innings. There have been four other innings with six ducks; the last was by India against England at Old Trafford in 2014. This was the first time since 1980 that Pakistan dismissed more than four batsmen for ducks in a Test innings. Five of these six batsmen who made ducks fell to Yasir.

90 - New Zealand's first innings score, the second-smallest since in UAE since 2009. The lowest is England's 72 in Abu Dhabi in 2012. This is also the lowest by any team against Pakistan in the last five years.
