    He got flustered by the ball staying low, he didn't know what to do. Had there been regular bounce he could have dealt with it, awkwardly perhaps but he could have dealt with it.

    BJ Watling has to be the most annoying and obdurate WK batsman ever, after Jack Russell. Watling makes your blood boil. So difficult to dislodge.

    Wrong, Yasir is a good leg spin bowler, but not ever close to a 25 average one. Warne averaged over 25.

    Pathetic New Zealand batting has made Yasir look like Warne when quite clearly he isn't even close.

    Way to lose the game in the first session after winning the toss. If Pakistan batting fist they wouldn't have lost 4 wickets in the first 2 days.

    Shame this game started on a Monday as itís going to be difficult for most to watch and already looks like itíll be a good game.

    Good toss to win for New Zealand and a good response from our bowlers, game still in the balance...

    Jadeja averages 23 does that make him a best left arm spinner of all time? this is a very poor era of batting vs spin along with doctored sub cont tracks a sub 25 average for Yasir will not be a shock.

    Stop it. This will be another innings win for Pakistan. They only need one or these two batsmen to run through their long tail. They should wrap it up this session and then bat for 2 days.

    I like your confidence but if only test cricket was this simple, we have only won one session so far similarly to how NZ won the first session in the last game.

    Happened in the last game with Shafiq.

    I don't think Bilal Asif has bowled too badly this series, he just relies heavily on bounce from the surface which is why he might be a good option going into South Africa. Very accurate bowler who can expose the proteas' vulnerability against right arm offies.

    He could have dealt with it. Awkward bounce like that can get batsmen playing down the wrong line especially when they get caught in an awkward position.

    Williamson is such an annoying batsman. Really is a pest, I mean that as a compliment.

    He's the only thing keeping NZ competitive in the series apart from our own incompetence in the first test.

    Without him this series was a walk in the park for us. Time for the other bowlers to step up.

    The great Kane Williamson at it again. If he isn't dismissed NZ will cross 250 which will make things very tough for Pak.

    Add Imam & Azhar to that list, these guys are playing that 1 test match over & over again learning zilch..

    Put azhar in the same situation as 1st test match again hell try to do the same (get 10 runs of 10 overs). Wouldnít use his brain as any class batsman would, with fielders in the boundrys place the ball just outside circle get 2.

    Misbah & younis wasted there time trying to improve shafiq & azhar.

    BJ Watling taking out his inner Azhar Ali. Hate watching him bat. That SR currently is horrible to put it mildly. He should be looking to score runs off these fast bowlers right now before Yasir comes back and his mindset is only to survive. Typical Azhar-ish knock.

    I think we should stop whining for every little thing on here. Bilal and Hafeez are not our favourites right now, but one good knock or one good spell will have everyone gushing about them.

    I myself don't want either of them in the team, but since they have been selected I'm behind them 200% and hoping they contribute to a victory here. Any criticism can be done later.

    What's the point of your criticism right now? Are you in any sort of power to have Inzi removed, or get Bilal or Hafeez dropped?

    Support the team during the match, no matter if your favourites are playing or not. You're the kind of poster who will clamour for so and so player before they are selected for the national team, and make a complete u-turn and rip him to shreds as soon as he fails once or twice.

    Posters will talk about NZ run rate but look at how they make sure they put the bad ball away. We don't always do that and it proves costly. No issue with crease occupation but when there is no intent to score it's very frustrating.

    Hopefully our management will sweat to learn how useless Bilal and Hafeez are?

    Yasir at risk of injuring his back after all that.

    On account of carrying the whole damn team on it.

    Yet they are going at 2.4 RPO, which is basically the end result with both approaches.

    Wonder where's @Aman today. He had a lot to say when Pakistan were doing this in the last test.

    This is an away side out of their element defending against Yasir Shah after being 4 down early... it's not the same thing.

    I explicitly pointed that out - home team batting extremely slow in the first innings in their own conditions.

    Also, we have no one after this pair.

    Hafeez has been useless for 15 years, nothing will ever change cant keep playing with passengers in the team.

    If Azhar would have faced 168 balls like Williamson he would have been at least 20 runs behind Williamson 78. That's the difference.

    These two are taking game away from Pakistan! If a team bats first and post 350 they will win more often than not.

    Williamson is a class above Azhar. Difference in this case is we dont have an equivalent of Williamson at present.

    Great going by NZ. If they get 250 here things will get very very difficult for Pak considering they will be chasing a score here.

    Who is going to take 20 wickets for us?

    We're going to need to score 400+ and need Pakistan to meltdown twice to win. It's not going to happen.

    These are lame excuses, and blatantly ignore the fact that the wickets in either Tests haven't been good enough for stroke-play. There is absolutely nothing wrong with batting at a lower SR, provided it achieves the means at the end of the day. Nobody will care KW batted at a SR below 50 throughout his innings, if this knock turns out to be vital in the grand scheme of things.

    Azhar is yet to bat twice in this test. Posters can bump this post as evidence for your dodgy analysis. Let's gauge the difference when this Test ends.

    Context.

    How often do you see a home team do what Pakistan did in the last Test?

    Bat at @ 2 an over at home after being 0-1 in the series.

    Williamson showing it's possible to bat time and still have intent to score. Being positive against 1 of the best spinners in the world. PP experts told us you can only score UAE by blocking every ball. No risk in these shots as well.

    Best leg spinner but leg spinners usually bowl a lot of loose balls too , not defending pakistans negative batting approach though.

    Williamson has increased his scoring rate since tea. Sarfraz has put the field back because of this.

    You honestly think Azhar would have done the same?

    If NZ can get 300, and Azhar blockathon could cost us. He will need to bat at an appropriate strike rate. Williamson is batting time but still looking to score.

    Let's see what Azhar does. He is yet to bat twice. I'll be happy to bump that post of yours to correct you, if Azhar does get to bat 168 balls or thereabouts.
