New Zealand made mincemeat of Pakistan by bowling them out for 186 runs in the second Test match at Christchurch on Wednesday, trouncing the tourists by an innings and 176 runs.

The 2.3-meter Kyle Jamieson took three of the four wickets to drop after lunch as Pakistan went to tea on day four in Christchurch at 134 for seven, requiring another 228 runs to make New Zealand bat again.

The formidable fast-pacer had figures of six for 38 to go with his five for 69 in the first innings to become the first bowler to take more than 10 wickets in a Test at Hagley Oval.

The junior member of a pace attack ruled by high-profile veterans Tim Southee and Trent Boult, the tall pacer has swiftly advanced to playing a senior role.

When the Green Shirts resumed the day at one down for eight, and requiring to bat for the better part of two days to save a draw, Jamieson took the first wicket when he had nightwatchman Mohammad Abbas out for three in the fifth over.

Since then, Jamieson took the lead by eliminating Abid Ali for 26 to go with his discharge of Shan Masood the preceding evening and Pakistan were 69 for three at lunch.

In a strong middle session, Jamieson had Haris Sohail and Azhar Ali caught behind, and careened Pakistan skipper Mohammad Rizwan to have the visitors at 98 for six.

Azhar had endeavored to take the fight back to Jamieson, moving into a short delivery and pulling it through mid-on for four as he reached 37.

The boundary obviously peeved Jamieson and, in his following over, without Azhar adding a further run, the giant made a ball rear up towards the ribs and it was gloved to the wicketkeeper.

Jamieson returned for his second wicket of the day when he sacked Fawad Alam for 16, leaving Faheem Ashraf not out 21 and Zafar Gohar still to score at tea.
