Colin de Grandhomme became New Zealand's most successful debutant bowler on Friday, taking six for 41 as Pakistan folded for 133 in their first innings of the first Test.

The 30-year-old late bloomer was a surprise inclusion in the New Zealand side, but fully justified his selection, swinging and seaming medium pace deliveries which the Pakistan batsmen found difficult to handle.

Only seven other New Zealand bowlers have taken five or more wickets on debut with the previous best figures belonging to Tim Southee at five for 55.

The previous record bowling figures on debut were Alex Moir's six for 155 against England 65 years ago.
