New Zealand fight back with Williamson fifty

A win at last New Zealand celebrate their 54-run victory over Pakistan

Pakistan were largely unchanged, except for preferring Hasan Ali over Hamza, and abstained from handing a debut to Shaheen Afridi. Afridi's call-up in the Test set-up comes as no surprise considering his continuous rise in the shorter formats.

However, it will be interesting to see how the Kiwis respond here as they have not played any Test match in the last seven months.

Pakistan also selected two specialist spinners with Bilal Asif to partner Shah. Asif gave a good account of himself in his debut series against Australia where he picked up nine wickets in the two Tests including a 6/36 in his first game in Dubai. Unveiling the trophy for the ongoing Test series between New Zealand and Pakistan, the cricket board has revealed a trophy with the giant words "Oye Hoye" on it. The spinners were expected to take more wickets, but it was Pakistan's pacer Mohammad Abbas who enjoyed a lot of success picking up a ten-wicket haul in that game. This could be same in the game between Pakistan and New Zealand going by the way the pitch at this venue played during the ODI series.

"Both are outstanding bowlers, have been bowling well for a long time. Abbas, ever since he entered worldwide cricket, is bowling superbly around the world", said Williamson.

New Zealand: D, W, W, W, D. Twenty overs earlier, it had appeared as if Pakistan may run through the middle order in the first session.

He took 15 wickets in the 1-1 series draw against New Zealand in the UAE in 2014. SkyGo app and website will also provide the live streaming for the users with the premium membership in the United Kingdom and New Zealand.

And, wow, we've got some pretty insane deals here! "The thing with Luka, he's a great player", Young told Sports Illustrated . Luka's a great dude, and I think he's going to be a really good player.

Williamson will be incharge of leading the side and will undoubtedly be the fulcrum of the batting unit.

"Coming into Pakistan's home series, naturally there is a lot of work to do for the overseas side to adapt to the conditions, but it is a fresh series".

"I think it's important that we adapt with this inexperienced side that we have come here with and look to learn as we can and do that quickly because we want to be playing our best cricket under these conditions".

New Zealand also have a strong pace attack with Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner and Matt Henry to chose from.

Ajaz Patel, a 30-year-old left-arm spinner, earned his first test cap for New Zealand, while experienced seamer Tim Southee was left out of the starting XI.

Pakistan might edge past the visitors considering their recent form as New Zealand would need time to settle and be at their best.
