New Zealand won a cricket match dramatically just by 4-runs from Pakistan. The match was played at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. It was the opening Test of the three-match series. On day 4 of the match, Pakistan needed 139 more runs to win with all 10 wickets in hand. However, debutant spinner Ajaz Patel took five wickets to lead a never-say-die approach from New Zealand bowlers as they pulled off a thrilling win to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
But what caught the attention is New Zealand cricketers were caught on camera celebrating their sensational win by showcasing their bhangra moves in the dressing room. Watch the video:
Defending a modest 176-run target, New Zealand bowlers led by Patel (5-59), fast bowler Neil Wagner (2-27) and Ish Sodhi (2-37) bowled out Pakistan for 171. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson on their team’s win said that,
“The attitude, certainly today and throughout the game, was brilliant. How those two bowlers Ajaz and Wagner bowled, for almost 20 overs, was brilliant. We knew the surface was not an easy one. There was considerable turn from day one and all the spinners bowled well.”
