After a very dismal bowling performance from Pakistan, they are now looking good with the bat. At the moment, they are almost near to hundred runs. At the moment, they are 2 wickets down and all they need is a good partnership.
Pakistan bowlers did miss the trick once again. Sami bowled well but rests of them were just not there. Amir looked good in the first spell but then got runs in the second. Irfan was taken to the cleaners by all the New Zealand batsmen.
Pakistan missed the line and length in their bowling once again. They were wavered and on a batting deck they gave the New Zealand batters extra hitting balls. This is not the way you bowl on such pitches at all.
New Zealand played well and get to 180 and still this total is a changeable one on this pitch. It helps the batters and Pakistan also have been given a fantastic start with the bat as well. Sharjeel Khan has taken his charge against all the kiwi bowlers.
He was just standing and hitting them. Against the pace of McClenaghan, he was special. He hit him for three fours and a six in one six and pulled things in favor of Pakistan.
