    The winner of this test will be ranked no2 in the world, but Pakistan is better than both sides and NZ might be too.

    Not at all a stretch to say NZ is better than England. They drew in the UAE, in England, beat the Windies (which England failed to do) and haven't lost any of their last 7 series while winning 4.

    England meanwhile lost to Lanka at home, dropped a Test to WI and lost 5-0.
