New Zealand thump Pakistan at Abu Dhabi
Meanwhile, Ajaz Patel bagged a five-wicket haul while all the other bowlers and fielders gave their sincere effort to thump Pakistan in their den. Despite starting the Test on a bad note, they finished it on a high.
Speaking of the game, Kane Williamson highlighted the fact that conditions have been pretty tough for the batsmen to survive. And also, he lauded the efforts of the boys and their strong character to come out from the sorts.
Players carried a superb attitude – Kane Williamson
Further, the stylish batsman quoted Pakistan has displayed high-class skills to make the things happen for them during the game. He finished by congratulating Ajaz Patel and Wagner for their stunning bowling display.
”A superb fighting effort. The surface wasn’t the easiest, it required a real scrappy performance and we saw it from both sides right throughout the match. A great advertisement for Test cricket, it went on only for three days but went all the way to the wire. But then it is a fantastic game to be a part of and nice to be on the winning side. Pakistan are a superb team and it was a great spectacle for all those out there watching. The attitude throughout the game was outstanding and the guys stayed in the contest for a long period,” Kane Willamson quoted.
”We saw through the game that wickets fell in clumps and that was reflective of the way the game ended. Those two bowlers [Ajaz and Wagner] were fantastic, they just kept bowling for 20 overs or something. It is nice to get these performances in and feels very rewarding. There are so many small margins whether you have a win or a loss and we need to look at them, which is something you don’t do when you are on the right side,” he added in the post-match presentation.
Well, it has been a scintillating game of cricket by the Kiwis and Pakistan at Abu Dhabi. As Kane Williamson said, it was a game which can be the perfect advertisement for the Test Format of the game.
