Dubai: Pakistan have dominated proceedings at Day 2 so far.
Welcome to the live coverage of Day 2 in the second Test between Pakistan and New Zealand.
Lunch time here at Dubai.
OVER 116// RUNS 296 // WICKETS 6
63 runs have been scored today in 29 overs with three wickets down. Just as when Neesham was looking to dig his way out in the crease, he was dismissed by Yasir Shah. Since then Watling and Craig have prevented any more enforcement. A session that completely belonged to Pakistan. There was also a dropped chance by Pakistan with Marc Craig being dropped after skying a shot high up in the air which Rahat Ali couldn’t hold onto.
OVER 96// RUNS 258 // WICKETS 5
15 runs have come from the first nine overs bowled today with two wickets gone. Pakistan have bowled well and keeping their approach tight. Neesham and Watling have an important period ahead negotiating the play. Neesham meanwhile, has found his second boundary after hitting a shot through mid-on off Adil. Yasir Shah makes his way and now it’s double spin attack from both ends.
OVER 90// RUNS 245 // WICKETS 5
Horrific start for New Zealand. Two wickets lost already with both overnight batsmen Latham and Anderson back to the pavillion. Rahat starts off with a maiden as latham is watchful before Adil gets Anderson in the second over of the day. Full-lish delivery and Anderson plays it straight to cover with the ball in the air. Neesham comes in. Ali then gets the centurion Latham who plays the second loose shot of the day. Good line and length as there is no foot movement from Latham and Sarfraz completes the catch.
