Pakistan started their inning with quick fire of Imam ul Haq and Hafeez has contributed as well, they ended the day at 37/0.
Pakistan still need 139 runs to win in the fourth day of test match, which is going to be not as easy as one should think of, last time Pakistan could not chase 134 runs tarfet against Srilanka at same venue
But the bowlers are change and team is also change but still Pakistan needs to play very good cricket to chase down this target
Hassan Ali proved to be lethal bowler for Pakistan in this Test Match as both of them removed 5 players each and shared fifers in the match.
New Zealand bundles out for 249 runs and 177 runs will be target for Pakistan to win the first Test Match here.
Yasir Shah got fifer here, out of last 4 wickets he got all of them, everything has been changed in just few seconds, 7 overs ago there were 4 gone for New Zealand but now they have lost 8 wickets in quick fire of Yasir Shah
NZ is at 228/8 at the moment
Yasir Shah has changed the total scenario of the match as he has got 3 quick wickets in his three overs now it’s been very decent comeback by him
NZ is at 227/7 at the moment
Pakistan finally got something to cheer, New Zealand was detemdeter in shaping the game, it was seeming to be difficult for Pakistan to get rid of any batsman but finally they got Henry Nichols on 55 runs who played the inning of his life.
Yasir Shah once again proved to be man go with, as he removes well set batsman and the Grandhomme was the player who replaced dismissed player and got his first ever Test Run
As NZ is at 224/5 at the moment
New Zealand is having a wonderful time out there as they are leading runs and taking the game away from Pakistan , they kept wickets in hand and now they are going to the direction of leading the huge runs in case winning the game,
Abu Dhabi is pitch which produced a lot of turn in last 2 days, batting on last 2 days will be huge task to keep in mind of winning the game by here
NZ is at 202/4 at the moment, Nichols 51 and Watling 44 are batting at the moment
New Zealand looks determined as they are keeping things very simple to get past good total here in Abu Dhabi where around 200+ target would be huge task to achieve.
They have played brilliant cricket having the skills of wicketkeeper batsman and regular No. 5 batsman at the crease who already smacked 31 runs and on the other hand Nichols playing brilliantly cricket on 32 at the moment
New Zealand is at 169/4 at the moment
Watling was given LBW out but he reviewed and survives !! a good review by him
But Pakistan kept New Zealand in cage as they are not getting many runs and Pakistan is busy getting few wickets before Lunch break, as NZ is at 134/4 at the moment before Lunch Break.
Nichols 13 and Watling 15 are playing at the moment and Hassan Ali is leading bowling chart with three wickets.
Hassan Ali magician takes New Zealand into the big trouble as he gets out three wickets out of 4 wickets are taken by Pakistan, he gets Rawal on 46 and Taylor on 19 runs quickly in first session of the 3rd day of Test match.
Overall he has bowled really well in this test match despite having poor ODIs series against the same side, New Zealand are at 128/4 at the moment.
New Zealand started their innings with positive intent as they didn’t lose any wicket in first hour and made some crucial runs for the team before Yasir Shah got the rid of Williamson who was batting on 37 when he was bowled by Yasir Shah who was working very hard to get it.
Still the chavecs are very high that New Zealand is going towards the some good target as they are batting at 105/2 right now
But Hassan Ali come up as a heat for them as he gets out third wicket of New Zealand’s as they are now 3 batsmen have gone to their cage.
