    Kiwis are better against Off-spin. An Offie was essential against AUS, but against Kiwis, it's equally important to have a SLAO spinner. In that regard, whatever ever little off-spin was required, probably Asad could have served. PAK should have gone with 6 batsmen & 2+2 specialist bowlers, plus added overs from Haris. I am sure in similar context IND would have gone with that combination bringing Gohar for Bilal, opening with Azhar/Imam and bringing one proper batsman at #6, promoting Babar & Haris at 4 & 3.

    Doesn't appear like 72 runs was a big enough lead.

    Chasing anything above 150 will be tricky on a wearing surface.

    Hafeez isn't a mystery spinner that they feel that he will be "exposed" if he bowls.

    The whole point is that he's got a track record against lefties which is good and trying him out when there's one at the crease isn't much an issue unless he goes for plenty and then you can just take him off.

    Pakistan doesn't utilise him much which either indicates that it could be due to his action coming into dispute and that they don't want to risk having it done for.

    agree with these suggestion playing 4 bowlers + overs from any decent bowler in tests.
    for onedays u have to pick 5 frontline bowlers

    Selecting someone like Bilal Asif goes to show how pathetically poor Pakistan's domestic level is that they can't produce decent off spinners in all these years.

    Same us some posters were complaining about Pak run rate. It is a test match strike rate is not important unless you have limited overs left to chase.

    Still, long, long, long way to go - beauty of Test match is it's won by session. Looks like Kiwis are going to win this session, but PAK can come back tomorrow morning and get 3-4 wickets - game is almost won.

    Wrong headline. Pakistan never surrendered any advantage. They had a 74 run lead. Kiwiz are still trailing.
    Lets not forget Aussies were 142/0 to 202/10
    Nzl were 111/3 to 152/10

    In any case Pakistan will chase down the target as long as it is not above 200.

    I'm not comfortable with Pakistan chasing any target above 100. NZ is on course to get more than that, leaving aside a dramatic collapse.

    This.
    Still It's not went out of Pak's hand. Anytime a Kiwi collapse can happen. But definitely a Kiwi fightback. I think it was Kiwi day

    Pakistan is not in a great position right now if early wickets don’t fall tomorrow. Abbas will be looking to get breakthroughs in the morning however if couple of their batsmen end up building a partnership our batsmen will have to come up with some performance to win it for us batting 4th on a tough pitch.

    Yes, we are all very happy that we do well against England. After all, it is the only thing that matters in Test cricket. You can be ranked 7, you can lose a home Test series to Sri Lanka, you can lose a home Test to West Indies. Everything is water under the bridge and the world is a bed of roses as long as you don't lose at Lord's or Oval.
