Napier, Dec 15 NZPA - The third and final cricket test between New Zealand and Pakistan has ended in a draw after rain washed out the final session at McLean Park here today.

Debutant BJ Watling was unbeaten on 60, his maiden test half-century, and Tim McIntosh was on 23.

Captain Daniel Vettori was named man of the match after scoring 134 in New Zealand's first innings before taking two from 93 from 56 overs in Pakistan's second innings of 455.

New Zealand won the first test in Dunedin by 32 runs and Pakistan won the second test by 141 runs in Wellington.
