Black Caps secure win over Pakistan

From Morning Report, 8:26 am on 31 December 2020

There were scenes of jubilation in Mount Maunganui last night as the Black Caps cricketers completed a thrilling win over Pakistan in their first test match, late on the final day. Mitchell Santner, Neil Wagner and Kyle Jamieson all picked up crucial wickets in the final session to win by 101 runs, dashing Pakistan's diminishing hopes of winning - or even drawing - the test match. The result moves New Zealand provisionally to number one on the ICC test rankings, and keeps them in the hunt for next year's World Test Championship final.
