    1 chance isn't 6 or 7 like Smith's was.

    Fact is NZ will happily take a drawn series, but Pakistan need a series win since they are the home team.

    New zealand declaration will come 30 minutes after morning session or max 45 minutes. Pak will have to bat out 80 odd overs tomorrow.

    which is not going to be that difficult it is not a rank turner pitch.

    UAE pitches are the worst I think in the world. Pitch can be spin favoring, but slow turning pitches is a disgrace for the basmen, for the viewers. Ball is turning,but as the wicket is slow,it doesn't come on to the bat. Shot making is so difficult here. BD pitches in recently concluded WI series was also spinning but ball was coming onto the bat. Any good batsman who can play spin well could hit the ball. But UAE pitch don't suit strokemaker at all.

    What a player Williamson is, but here must appreciate Nicholls as well.

    22 overs left today, light permitting - that’s 112 overs in the game. I would have been a really worried man if I were Sarfraz. Kiwis can bat for 25 overs (3 tomorrow), use the heaviest roller on 5th morning and set PAK 256 to win in 85 overs, leaving 5 overs with 2nd ball.

    Bro, I told you in IND-AUS game thread - “.... one lost to ZIM at home & one is struggling to hold on to underwear against this Kiwi team.... we shouldn’t talk about India’s No. 1 ranking & home bullying ......”.

    Do you think playing out for a draw with the skin of your teeth is an achievement for PAK against this Kiwi team?

    He is scared of conceding quick runs, and rightly so - both set batsmen against tiered attack, Kiwis might add close to 100 against new ball tonight.

    Sarfaraz never worries because it’s never sarfaraz’s fault. If PAK loses its always batsman/bowlers fault. It’s never captain/keeper fault

    Any competent Asian team would not be panicking being set a target of 150-200 even 250. But yet here we are on a dud pitch, even if you consider it a pitch with some spice, facing substandard Western spinners, freaking out chasing 150. Can't blame the fans but have to blame this spineless batting order. 2 spineless openers (Imam didn't inherit anything from Inzi it seems like, except maybe anger), a useless tail, useless keeper batsman, so the #3, #4, and #5 (hit or miss) have to chase everything themselves.

    Tough choice for the Kiwis..should they go for runs and risk getting bowled out for 200-210 or even lower? or should they bat out the day, end with a lead of 190-200 by the close of play with 3-4 wickets remaining, score 35-40 runs in the morning and give themselves 75-80 overs tomorrow or to play totally safe and carry on batting for as long as they can content with a 1-1 draw in the series?

    With the series on the line, Pakistan will go for it even if they have to chase 250+ in 55-60 overs.

    At this point, anyone over Sarfraz would be an upgrade. He has completely lost it mentally.

    Easiest choice for them to be honest - they are not chasing the game/series here. From a possible 3-0 brown wash, 1-1 is quite a good result for them, particularly when they hold the rubber for last series (and they can always back themselves to win next series again at home). If possible, Kiwis should bat 25 minutes till lunch tomorrow and set 300 in 70 overs .,,,,,

    I don't believe Pakistan will be in a position to chase as NZ will set up 300 for the win. There is no way Pakistan will look to score 300 on the 5th day and would therefore be content with a draw.

    But we all know what happens when Pakistan tries to draw a game on the 5th day:
    Birmingham 2016
    Hamilton 2016
    Melbourne 2016

    Might as well add Abu Dhabi 2018 to the list.

    With the series on the line, Pakistan will go for it even if they have to chase 250+ in 55-60 overs.
    Not in a gazillion years. Only would've gone for the target if they were 1-0 down in the series. In 2014, Pakistan were set 260 in 67 overs in the second test match in Dubai I believe. They were 1-0 up in the series with 1 match still remaining. They still don't go for the target. So to believe that this time they will go for the target when they can secure the series 1-1 is wishful thinking.

    This time you can look to bat out the day and save the series. Which is why they won't look to chase anything over 250 on the last day.

    People are forgetting that there are two teams in play, why is everyone acting like New Zealand should have just folded? They have the best captain in world cricket, who happens to be one the best batsmen in the world and is supported by decent bowlers and batsmen.

    I expected the fight and they deserve the luck they've had this innings. This comeback is what makes test cricket intriguing.

    Still think we have won more sessions but New Zealand definitely are ahead at this stage. Any result is still possible - win, loss and draw.

    Yasir Shah is into his 74th over this match, while Bilal has completed close to 60 overs. I don't know about Sarfaraz's mindset but to make your best bowler bowl close to 80 overs within 4 days is gonna take it's toll on Yasir.

    Sarfraz probably won't take the new ball today now. Probably saving it for the morning when there might be some swing. Or probably would take it when there are about 5 overs remaining in the day so that he can have two bites at the cherry. Either ways idiotic decision. Should've taken it when it was due an hour ago.

    Definitely, but Kiwi’s batting tactics suggests they’ll take a chance, may be with 70 overs at hand if they can stick around.

    You haven’t seen the end of it yet, so stay tuned.

    Our next test in Asia is next year against Sri Lanka. Sarfraz, Azhar and Shafiq should be gone by then and new players should be given a chance in that series.

    If they had taken ASAP nz were at 150 so even if they up the runrate they would have collapsed up to 220 that would have given PAK a better chance

    One of the differences between this match and the two 300+ chases against Sri Lanka is that Angelo Mathews was their captain, and his defensive fields and general tactical ineptitude helped us pinch easy runs.

    Also that was at Sharjah where scoring is much easier than this wicket.

    Don’t think it’s only about wicket - you have to consider the batting class & captaincy as well. In either case Kane Will is a different beast.

    Or how poor is Sarfraz - Misbah actually ended with 1-1 against Kiwis & Lankans & managed to lose a Test to WIN.
