Twitter reactions: New Zealand pummel Pakistan by an innings and 176 runs in Christchurch Test

New Zealand beat Pakistan to seal series 2-0

New Zealand positively commenced 2021, after they bowled out Pakistan for 186 in their second innings on Day 4 of the final Test at Hagley Oval in Christchurch to seal an innings and 176-run victory.

The massive win has pushed Blackcaps to the summit of the ICC Test Team Rankings for the very first time. New Zealand now have 118 rating points in comparison to Australia’s 116.

Pakistan resumed Day 4 with overnight score of 8/1 after New Zealand had posted a huge lead of 362 runs.

Kyle Jamieson, who destroyed the visitors in the first innings, continued the same momentum and sent shockwaves to Pakistani camp when he bagged six wickets in the second innings. The tall fast bowler ended the second Test with remarkable figures of 11/117.

The capitulation by Pak has been rather disappointing in this test match. Kyle Jamieson & Williamson outstanding though #NZvPAK

Much as I love New Zealand and enjoy seeing them dominate, I’d hold back on the praise for Kane and Kyle etc till I see them play away from home #NZvPAK

Brendon McCullum must be so happy when he presented the trophy to Kane Williamson thinking once I led this team, I might’ve not taken them to No.1, but my buddy has achieved that today.

New Zealand become the World No.1 Test team for the first time ever. First time they’ve won 6 Tests on the trot. Amazing achievement. They totally outplayed Pakistan. Williamson (238), Nicholls (157) & Mitchell (102*) & Jamieson (11 wkts) were the

Well played NZ, formidable side led by an amazing captain, they totally outclassed this woefully inept Pakistan side. I bet someone will still say “we played positive cricket”. Goodnight I’m off to bed, #NZvsPAK

Kane Williamson – 238Kyle Jamieson – 10/102

This is the first-ever home Test match for New Zealand where they had an individual double century and also a 10-wicket match effort.(Overall 3rd time for NZ after Chattogram, 2004 and Sharjah, 2014) #NZvPAK

— Sampath Bandarupalli (@SampathStats) January 6, 2021

Terrific performance from NZ winning the Test series 2-0 and becoming the World no 1 Test team. Disappointing tour for Pak, lot to learn from it. The selection of team wasn’t good, it should be done on merit. Williamson and Jamieson were outstanding.#PakvsNz

As good a series as Kyle Jamieson and Kane Williamson just had, I’ll raise you how bad a series that was for Shan Masood and Haris Sohail #NZvPAK

— Matt West (@mwesty_otg) January 6, 2021

My observations from #NZvsPAK ahead of #AUSvIND in the #SydneyTest:

– Kyle Jamieson is Cameron Green, but scarier – Kane Williamson is Steve Smith, but more consistent and conventional – NZ has the batting depth Aus craves – There is an admirable humility about the NZ side

— Perry Driver (@_PerryDriver) January 6, 2021

Kane Williamson is the greatest player i’ve witnessed. And Kyle Jamieson is unreal – 11 wickets 😳
