Shashi / 02 December 2014

New Zealand Captain Brendon McCullum forcefully hurled New Zealand‘s so called not so easy series smoothing win in the 3rd Test match in the wake of crony cricketer Phillip Hughes‘s dreadful death.

McCullum said that it obviously was not easy, and it was a very rough period. They are affected as the guys back in Australia, but on the other hand cricket is a community, it is a fraternity and they felt they lost one of their own brother teammate. Both teams agreed to leave the 2nd days play after the dire news came and did not enjoyed milestones and fall of wickets.

Brendon who hit a robust 202 which helped his team post their highest-ever Test total of 690 said the adversity hit players very hard. He added that it hit the persons quiet hard and they tried their best to stay as close as they could as a group. They tried to spend a lot of time together and tried to talk through many thoughts. It felt extremely hard to keep focus on the cricket and very hard to talk about the game. They will look back upon this presentation in time and they will be really proud of what they have been able to achieve.

Brendon McCullum eulogized his team’s revival after losing a important toss and Pakistan racing to 281 for the loss of 3 wickets on the first day as Pakistan were bowled out for 351 and 259.

 Brendon said New Zealand has proved well in Tests. He added that what it allowed them to do was devastate things right back to what was crucial for them, how they wanted to be known as a team, and the attributes they wanted to see in those representing New Zealand.

Pakistan Skipper Misbah-Ul-Haq manifested dismay at the Sharjah stadium and said that they cannot do anything about that. He also added that they are asked for the turner and everybody has seen what sort of wicket this was because they wanted this Test to be pronounced and they asked for a turning pitch and he does not know what happened.
