    His seven wicket haul came a day after Hughes passed away and the players were very affected by it. Pakistan from memory were in a strong position in their first innings on day one and then simply collapsed to Craig's offspin (possibly didn't want to hang around on the pitch like their NZ counterparts). Still an impressive achievement nonetheless

    Williamson is all kinds of awesome. Just quietly goes about delivering with no fuss and (while is universally respected) a minimum of the hyperbole that's attached to the performances of Kohli and Smith.

    Can see why Arthur gets so frustrated, for all the focus on it and the intermittent improvements the Pakistani fielding let them down again.

    Williamson might just be the most technically perfect bat I’ve seen in my life. A complete aesthetic pleasure.

    I can't get a read on where this game is placed. Are both teams happy with the draw? Will NZ try to accelerate and give them enough runs and time to have a go at bowling Pakistan out? Will Pakistan go away from the defensive fields and bowling they adopted in the last session in an effort to bowl NZ relatively cheaply?

    NZ have the upper hand now with a lead of around 200 and 6 wickets in hand they shouldn't lose from there barring a quick collapse in the first session.

    If they don't collapse it will just be a matter of whether they want to push for a win by declaring, they would need at least 2 sessions to bowl Pakistan out.

    Williamson is just amazing.

    One of the most no frills batsmen I’ve ever seen, exquisite player.

    Shaping up to be a cracking fifth day of Test cricket, in the third and final Test.

    NZ going the tonk, Pakistan got the big wicket on the first ball of the day, and since then it has been mayhem.

    Can see Pakistan going for the win when they get the chance to bat. The pitch is still good.

    Excellent day's cricket ahead.

    And the commentary box is getting silly. You'll have to watch and hear it for yourself.

    NZ have declared. Pakistan have a target of 280 and have 80 overs to get them.


    That’s a pretty bold declaration...

    Good to see an aggressive declaration, NZ backing their bowlers in to win it even if it gives Pakistan a chance.

    This series deserves a result or at least an exciting finish, a boring draw would be a fizzer.

    NZ making a couple of early strikes.

    Need the spinners to come to the party.

    Somerville your time is now.

    Right on cue Somerville delivers with a couple of wickets, the Black Caps are closing in on a series win.

    Wow, potentially another away series win in the offing here.

    Patel's got Imam-ul-haq. Looking good for a win, the Pakistan batsmen capable of digging in (Azhar, Shafiq) are already gone.

    Would be the biggest away win for nz since they beat us in the 80's.

    Probably bigger - back then we were near the bottom of the world rankings and NZ clearly had the better side.

    Sarfraz will feel he can win this but don't think the tail will be strong enough to chase this even if he does keep going.
