NZ wins the series in UAE in fine style. Amazing win in the first game, thrashed in the 2nd, and come from behind win in the final. Incredible stuff.

PAK are really struggling post MisYou, apart from a 1-1 draw in England, where everyone from crappy West Indies to even crappier Sri Lanka have won Tests in recent times.

They have a core of young batters though to work with. Imam will come good, Babar is one of the most exciting players in the world and Harris Sohail looks silky. They just need to find a settled opening combination and they'll be away. Feel bad for Bilal Asif, I thought he bowled well without much luck and when he wasn't taking wickets he was at least keeping things really tight. At 33 that may be the last time we see him, but I liked what I saw.
Shaheen Afridi looks too raw right now and I'd personally rather see Amir back in the mixer
When in doubt, listen to Oasis chaps....
