Pakistan got 367 on the board in their first innings while Brent Arnel did the damage for the Kiwis taking four wickets. The Black Caps seemed to be off to a fine start at 36 for no loss before the dramatic collapse.

Umar Gul, Abdur Rehman and Wahab Riaz took three wickets each for Pakistan. Left arm spinner - Abdur Rehman got the Man of the Match award.
