    Atleast he never lost a series and generally I think he was tactically better in tests.

    New Zealand is'nt that fantastic team individually but play well with their fielding. Pakistan always fails the plot and give them an opening. This needs to change

    One can't win by keeping people like Imam and Hafeez in the team. Pakistan throughout the series started 2 down.

    NZ still not out of the woods. First test was a one off. 250 is the absolute max you can be logically comfortable with, getting 6 wickets till then is not impossible.

    300+ (unlikely) and we'll have to make history (again )

    Even if Pakistan can't win from here, you should try and draw the match. You gain 1 point from drawing the series and NZ lose points. That would make PAK come within 5 points of NZ. Can't afford to lose this.

    That Sri Lankan team still had Sanga and Mahela. SRL were beaten in 2011 series.

    Whereas losing 0-2 to a SRL team that has just been blanked at home by England, and playing 3 seamers on spin decks is a bigger blunder. As is drawing a Test to the weakest Australian team since Packer.

    Indication that this pitch is becoming a road as the Test match progresses. Pretty poor pitch I would say. Should not be happening. It would be shameful if Pakistan collapses on the 5th day on this pitch which is only getting better.

    Kiwis leaving I very late. They should have started launching it 10 overs ago.
    Maybe they know the wicket has flattened out completely.

    250 would be a very good target but looks like the Kiwis want to make sure that a win for Pakistan is completely out of their reach.

    I can see Grandhomme or southee been sent in next and look to slog a quick few runs, I can see new zealand looking to bat maybe 20 overs or 25 over max tomorrow and then have 70 overs or so at us.

    Now we know who was the captain who truly went for the kill in UAE and the captain who rested on his laurels.

    More you deem a captain aggressive, more they turn out to do cowardly things. Here it was Sarfraz, but Afridi had similar honors.

    As much as I criticize Misbah, he went for victory in UAE.

    The don't need to. ODIs series tied and now test series being drawn on UAE is going to be a massive achievement for them. It's Pakistan that should be worried not to beat this NZ side 3-0. One of the most halwa batting apart from Williampson.

    Completely agree.

    However, knowing our mental midgets with the bat, I think they could have tried to up the tempo once they got the last past 160 but like you say it's not really in their interest. Better to bat Pakistan out of it then take any risks especially as there is little in this wicket.

    Unless the pitch breaks up and starts behaving unpredictable every other ball I think Pakistan can comfortably draw this.

    Kiwis probably will settle for s safe draw & can’t blame them - they are holding rubber and they’ll blank PAK next time these two teams meet in Kiwi land.

    But, if Ken is ambitious, he can throw cat among the pigeons - use heavy roller, bat for 13 overs like crazy & declare (or get all out) for 330 with a lead of like 256 and 75 overs to take 10 wickets (or chase at 3.43 rate)

    It's so embarrassing to not have reviews left in the bag on plumb decisions. Sarfraz has not wasted reviews tok early for the first time. He done that against Aus which helped them to draw the game and also against NZ in first test. Patjetic captaincy and him being the wicket keeper makes it even worse.

    Kiwi strategy [ hopefully ] : bat for 13 overs , score 70 & declare setting a target of 269-270 in 75 overs . Hosts with their usual tedious batting style will not attempt this .
    Will KW muster up the courage to do that with series being 1-1 ?

    True. An innings of highest class. There were 2-3 other deliveries too in the first session.

    He is the most complete batsman playing in current era. Knew he would score big today.

    That was simply brilliant by Williamson and Nicholls. The pitch has become docile but a few deliveries did turn but others simply were too slow to make a difference.

    This is NZ match to lose and all will depend how long they bat. I reckon they target quick-fire runs in the first session and get Pakistan to bat half-an-hour before lunch.

    A target of 270-75 is what I'd be looking at if I were Williamson.

    Win the toss helped to win the tests earlier. Let's see how this one turns out.

    Has Pakistan won a test after losing toss in recent times in UAE?

    It'll be a minor miracle if NZ don't win. Our test team is an embarrassment since 2016.

    Pakistan tailenders cannot score more than 20 runs between themselves. Azhar Mahmood should be given a dressing down for such pitiful performance.

    Since yesterday's collapse, I had a bad feeling about this match, the lead was not big enough and I thought it would go the same way as the 1st Test, and unfortunately I've been proven right. Even if we draw tomorrow, I will still be disappointed with a 1-1 result. Our players should apologize to the nation for this pathetic performance.

    New Zealand have got this game in the bag, it is theirs to lose. Expecting a traditional Pakistan 4th innings collapse tomorrow.

    Most likely a draw or Pak will cave in again as always when batting tomorrow. The 4 run defeat cost us big time.

    If series ends up 1-1, this is a win situation for NZ. With premium spinners and slow wickets, this series was ours to lose.
