Black Caps put Pakistan to the sword

2009-11-26 00:00

DANIEL Vettori and Brendon McCullum put Pakistan to the sword on a rain-shortened second day in Dunedin.

Vettorri became the highest run-getter at No. 8 in Test history, but fell one run short of becoming the first number eight to make back-to-back Test centuries.

McCullum chipped in with 78 as the Kiwis ended the day on 404 for eight.
