Ajaz Patel takes five wickets as tourists win first Test by four runs

New Zealand recorded one of the closest wins in Test history as they beat Pakistan by four runs on day four of the first Test in Abu Dhabi. Chasing 176 to win, Pakistan needed just 41 runs with six wickets in hand before collapsing. New Zealand debutant Ajaz Patel recorded figures of 5-59 as Pakistan were bowled out for 171. It is the closest margin of victory by runs in a Test for 13 years and the fifth-smallest in Test history. The last time a Test match was won by a smaller margin was when England beat Australia by two runs in the second Test of the 2005 Ashes series. The closest finish was when the West Indies beat Australia by just a single run in 1993.
