New Zealand`s Wrecker-in-chief against Pakistan Ajaz Patel has Indian-origins

New Zealand players celebrate a Pakistan wicket during the fourth day of first Test

Almost £800k was matched on Pakistan at [1.01] before New Zealand mounted a remarkable fight-back to win the first Test in Dubai by four runs.

"It's a dream come true".

Babar Azam's (10) run out in a mix-up with Azhar triggered the collapse as Pakistan lost its last six wickets for only 24 runs.

"It's still quite surreal at the moment, it's quite hard to soak it in but I'm sure it will sink in in the next couple of hours or next couple of days but yeah definitely wouldn't have dreamt it to start any better and be in a position to win your country a game of Test cricket and to do it in that fashion is quite special".

The visitors resumed their incomplete innings with 81 runs on the score board and seven wickets in hand after lunch on day one. "Throughout the four days, both teams were put under pressure".

Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who like Brown is rumored to run for president in 2020, also said Abrams' election is being "stolen". The Republican served as Georgia's secretary of state before the race , putting him in overall charge of elections.

"The attitude, certainly today and throughout the game, was brilliant", said New Zealand captain Kane Williamson who now has nine wins in his 18 Tests in charge.

Bilal Asif's wild swipe got him bowled on duck, and the next batsmen Yasir Shah and Hasan Ali couldn't add to the scoreboard either, leaving Azhar Ali exclusively in charge of the run-chase with a wicket in hand. Azhar Ali hit 65 but rapidly ran out of partners, with three Pakistan batsmen going for zero.

The five-day format has been under threat from the more vibrant Twenty20 and one-day internationals and the mushrooming of the leagues around the world.

After the match he admitted his achievement hadn't really sunk in.

However, just as Pakistan looked like they were getting away with the match, Henry Nicholls and BJ Watling stepped up and attempted to rewrite the script.

"The way we started off yesterday we felt we will get through to the target easily. I guess when you look back, winning by such a small margin means every contribution in terms of runs scored and runs saved on the field did matter".

It hasn't been an easy road to the top for Patel who had been a fast bowler his whole life but switched to spin for fun in a few club games.

Ajaz Patel had figures of 1-40 with the ball for New Zealand, with Ish Sodhi (2-37) striking early with two wickets of his own. In these conditions Pakistan are a very strong side.

After this, no batsman could form a partnership as New Zealand's innings kept falling apart.
