New Zealand defeated Pakistan by 4 runs. 

In what could be one of the most sensational comebacks in Test cricket history, New Zealand did the unthinkable as they defeated Pakistan by 4 runs on Day 4 of the 1st Test in their backyard. Azar Patel's fifer on his debut saw off Pakistan in style to help the visitors take the lead in the three-match series 1-0. 

The pressure immensely falls on Pakistan as they were at one point close to winning the match, but a sudden collapse saw the batsmen falling one after the other, only for them to lose the 1st Test by a narrow four runs. The Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Dubai was dead silent and only the New Zealand players' celebration could be heard. 

Pakistan, hence squandered the chance to take the lead. On Day 3, Pakistan required just 175 runs to win the match. They had a comfortable two days to play after bundling out the visitors for 249 in the second innings. However, the Kane Williamson side made an incredible comeback to stun Pakistan. 

Twitter was left astonished and flabbergasted. Here's what they had to say. Take a look. 

New Zealand have taken a 1-0 lead in the three-match Test series against Pakistan. The 2nd Test will begin from November 24 at the Dubai International Cricket stadium.
