Four New Zealanders have now scored multiple test centuries in 2014; Williamson (3) and McCullum, Neesham and Latham with 2 each. This eclipses the previous record of three; 2004 (Fleming, Styris, Oram) and 2009 (Vettori, Ryder, Taylor).
There have now been 11 test centuries scored in the calendar year; a joint record with 2013.
The test included the 50th six in test cricket for Tim Southee. He is easily the player with the fewest runs to reach this milestone.
Ross Taylor now has 12 test centuries, which puts him joint second on the list of all-time New Zealand test centurions.
403 was the highest away score by New Zealand in the first innings of a test against Pakistan.
Brendon McCullum became only the third New Zealander (after JR Reid and Congdon) to claim a wicket with the ball, and claim a stumping in test cricket.
He joined Barry Sinclair, BAG Murray and Dean Brownlie in claiming a test wicket before a first class one.
This also meant that this side contained nine players who have taken a test wicket; a New Zealand first.
