Green shirts lost to Blackcaps with 27 balls spared to the game’s end left the cricket lovers heart-broken on the fifth day of the match.
New Zealand won the first test match against Pakistan and lead the test series with 1-0.
A century by Fawad Alam and his long 6th wicket stand of 165 runs with stand-in captain Mohammad Rizwan gave Pakistan some hopes of saving the test. Regrettably, that was not enough against the highly-determined Kiwis’ bowling attack.
An excellent match played by both the teams but in the end, New Zealand won the test match by 101 runs.
Following are some of the reactions by fans on popular social media site Twitter after Pakistan’s unfortunate defeat.

Two youngest members of the squad showed more fight than the 30+yo FC veterans at the top of the order. These two should be proud of themselves. https://t.co/T7icRkE3Ab

Pakistan’s no 10/11 are amongst the poorest batsman in tests – to expect them to bat out a draw against 1 of the most complete bowling units is a ludicrous expectation. What’s compelling about this is the determination of these kiddos – they’re kids. Shows exceptional promise.
