Yikes! That's one hell of a bowling attack New Zealand have formed. They have the batters to soak up pressure, wear bowlers the down and find a way out. No wonder they are No. 1 and it's a rise pleasing to see after where they were few years ago. It's a shame we didn't get to see Jamieson v Babar Azam. Competing against New Zealand in New Zealand is tough. Pakistan did well in the first Test. Did pretty well in the first innings too, but the bowling just fell apart after a while. There's no way you can concede 659 on a pitch that is still helpful in the final session on Day 4. New Zealand mentally outbatted them and then Jamieson tookover again. Probably he is the current sensation of international cricket. Cricket fans would love to see him battle against the likes of Kohli, Smith soon. Actually Jamieson v Williamson would have been great battle too. Captain Kane escapes! The red-ball games are done for now. New Zealand are hosting Australia for 5 T20Is in Feburary and they will have a bit of break after back-to-back series against West Indies and Pakistan. A gripping SCG Test awaits us tomorrow. We will see all you all there and with much more cricket across the globe. Take care! Brendon McCullum hands the trophy to Kane Williamson and they pose as the No. 1 Test side for the first time in Test history. Mohammad Rizwan | Pakistan captain : I take responsibility. I didn't keep well, and the fielding wasn't great. The bowlers created opportunities but we weren't taking the catches. We tried but didn't do well. We learnt a lot on this tour, We failed in all departments. Congratulations to New Zealand for playing well. The biggest difference between the teams was Jamieson. Kane Williamson | Player of the Series | New Zealand captain : It's an incredible couple of games. Even though the result on paper was in our favour, but Pakistan is a quality side. We worked hard and got lucky with a few moments. Kyle is a special cricketer. He's gone a long way to moving this team forward and complementing the bowling attack. Daryl bats higher and bowls a few more overs, but the attitude both of them brought in was great to see. I am sure there are many more hundreds to come Daryl's way. It was a real battle for a long time. The runs were tough to come by as Pakistan bowled great lines. The openers gave us a great start and Nicholls batted with a calf muscle injury and it was an incredible effort. Really pleasing performance, nice to finish the Test summer on a high. Kyle Jamieson: We had to graft away for decent periods of time. As a bowling unit, we were clinical. From my point of view, just sit back and learn. We have got the four pronged attack. I am the fourth prong. Try and observe what these guys have done for the years. I will give it to my old cricket club (when asked about a 500 dollar donation on behalf of the main sponsors).  17:00 Local Time, 04:00 GMT, 09:30 IST: A thumping win for the Blackcaps. "Number one, number one" chants from the crowd as New Zealand climb atop the Test rankings. Jamieson leads the team off the field. What a stellar performance it's been from him. Both teams shake hands. Jamieson picks up a stump as souvenir. A hug from KW too. Kane, Jamieson and Nicholls the heros for the hosts. Once they got that mammoth total, it was always going to tough for Pakistan and with Jamieson threatening everyball, it was literally impossible to take this to Day 5. The tall bowler got five of the first six wickets to fall in the second innings to make it a 10-wicket haul. He picked up one more to finish with 11 wickets.
