Pak vs NZ 3rd Test Day 2 Live Cricket Score Streaming Online, Pakistan vs New Zealand Live Cricket Score Streaming:
50 up for Pakistan
Pakistan have crossed the 50-run mark with Haris Sohail and Azhar Ali once again stitching a partnership together. Sohai scoring runs at a much faster pace this time, though.
GONE! Trent Boult gets the big wicket of Imam-ul-Haq. Good catch by Tim Southee. Imam departs for 9. PAK 17/2
Back after Lunch
The players are back on the field after Lunch. Trent Boult still has two bowls remaining – so he takes the ball to finish the over. Imam-ul-Haq and Azhar Ali out to face the heat for the hosts.
Umpires call for Lunch, Pakistan 0/1 in 1.4 overs
That wicket was the last act of the first session on Day 2 of this Test. 45 runs in the last two hours, none of which were Pakistan’s to claim. That Hafeez wicket means that the match is on a knife’s edge at the moment.
GONE! Hafeez c Southee b Boult, Pakistan 0/1
What a catch by Southee at second slip! Hafeez goes searching outside off but the ball was travelling down after taking the edge. Southee anticipates that and manages to keep his fingers underneath the ball. Umpires go upstairs and replays show that Hafeez has to walk.
The teams are back
Imam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Hafeez open for Pakistan, Tim Southee starts the New Zealand attack. Just over five minutes to go for Lunch.
OUT! Boult b Bilal Asif, New Zealand 274 all out
Fifer for Bilal Asif. In the slot and Boult swishes accross the line, misses the ball competely and the ball crashes on to the stumps unimpeded. Watling remains unbeaten on 77. A gritty innings this from New Zealand. Yasir Shah and Bilal have shared eight wickets between them.
GONE! Ajaz Patel c Shafiq b Bilal, New Zealand 272/9
Edged and gone! Wicket no. 4 for Bilal. New Zealand down to their last wicket. Sharp spin from the leg stump line, good bounce too, Ajaz ends up edging it to slips.
New Zealand 271/8
Yasir Shah has been brought into the attack but no wicket yet for him. Watling has moved to 76.
GONE! Somerville b Asif, New Zealand 254/8
And the stand is broken! Somerville shuffles back into the crease trying to push the ball through covers, ends up taking on his pad right in front of middle stump. He goes for 12 but he blocked Pakistan off for 99 deliveries.
New Zealand 253/7 after 106 overs
An hour passes, Watling and Sommerville have now put 44 runs for the eighth wicket. They are looking to hang in there as long as possible. Sommerville has played 97 balls for his 16 while Watling has faced 225 and scored 66.
New Zealand 251/7 off 102 overs
Partnership between Watling and Sommerville is now nearing the 50-run mark. Watling has moved into the 60s. They are eyeing the 300-run mark and if they manage that, it will be a huge bonus for them.
50 for Watling
A boundary to bring up his 16th Test fifty. This has been a proper battle from the New Zealand wicketkeeper – he has faced 199 balls to get to the milestone.
New Zealand 232/7
Shaheen Afridi and Hasan Ali bowl the first two overs of the day. Three runs came off the latter’s over, none off Afridi.
Cracks on the surface
The players come out, Watling and Somerville take the crease and Hasan Ali begins Pakistan’s attack. There are cracks on the surface which will only open up as the day progresses.
Hello and welcome!
New Zealand found themselves floundering once again to spin. There were pockets in which the visitors looked good and all these pockets featured captain Kane Williamson. The first such pocket was during Williamson’s third wicket partnership with Jeet Raval. That ended with a Yasir Shah wicket burst. The second was during a 104-run fifth wicket partnership between Williamson and BJ Watling. That ended when Hasan Ali bagged the New Zealand captain.
