Yasir takes 14 wickets as Pakistan thrash New Zealand
Yasir Shah took 14 wickets in the match as Pakistan beat New Zealand by an innings and 16 runs in the second Test.
The 32-year-old finished with match figures of 14-184, with only Pakistan legend Imran Khan’s 14-116 against Sri Lanka 35 years ago ahead of him on his nation's role of honour.
The Black Caps were all out for 312 in Dubai, meaning the series is level at 1-1 with one match to play and it was all about the leg-spinner on Tuesday.
Having taken 10 wickets on day three as the Kiwis collapsed from 50-0 to 90 all out before following on, Yasir was at it again on day four.
He had already taken two of New Zealand’s second-innings wickets, with the 'visitors' sitting on 131-2 overnight.
Tom Latham went for 50 while Ross Taylor made 82 but, despite 77 from Henry Nicholls, the writing was on the wall as the tourists lost their last five wickets for 57 runs.
Yasir returned figures of 6-143 in the second knock to comfortably beat his previous best match effort of 10-141 in victory over England at Lord's in 2016.
