New Zealand managed to get 24/0 at the stumps day 2, there were two overs left before the day completed but Umpires calls the day stumps as there was not good light enough which force Umpires to called the day off on the second day of the second Test Match.
earlier Pakistan declared the innings on 418/5 where Babar Azam smashed 127* and Haris Sohail 147 and good knock by Sarfaraz who made 28 runs not out.
Pakistan had decided to declare the inning with making people shocked, Pakistan didn’t go for big and when the time arrives, they just announced declaration with no plan.
They declared the innings on 418/5 which is as shocking as nothing could be, it is slowest total of Declaration in UAE, I would may say it might be a mistake as if they had plan to declare then why they didn’t go for big shots earlier ???
A shocking announcement made by the Pakistan now New Zealand is batting on 12/0 at the moment.
Babar Azam brings his first ever sensational century after a long long wait of three years.
His century took 215 balls, he comsumed too many balls from 97 to 99 which made us wait for more than a hour,
His innings has 10 fours and 1 six but on the other hand Haris Sohail who made this game just got out when he was just about to make 150 runs but he shorts 3 runs and got out on 147 runs which can be called as bad luck but he had played slow strady but crucial inning in the end of the day.
Babar Azam who came to bat when two wickets got out in quick time has brought his well deserved fifty here.
His inning guaranteed some strokes and played some crucial shots on the crisis time, it was who consumed the pressure from the Pakistan side when Pakistan was struggling to get some runs, Pakistan may have broken the previous slowest score of day 1, if he did not score those some quick runs in the last day
Pakistan is at 274/4 at the moment, Babar Azam is at 52 and Haris Sohail is at 110 at the moment are batting, and it’s Lunch Time !!!!
Harris Sohail brings up his century on 306 balls, which is not slowest of all time but 2nd slowest from Pakistan side
He struggled onto 90s and consumed many balls from 98 to 100 and he also got many inside edges on to 98 and 99 but he survived and got his well deserved century, which is his 2nd century of the year for Pakistan and was 3rd for the Paksitan’s batting lineups in this year, Hafeez was the man who brought first century for Pakistan in this year, 2nd and third belongs to Haris Sohail,
He also broke the record of Pujara who brought his century on 301 balls just few years ago, but none the less century always counted as century and he did best on the turning track .
Pakistan started their innings from 207/4 and are playing good cricket at the moment as their both set batsmen are making score with good strike rate and getting runs for themselves as well.
Azhar Ali who is just nearing his century is playing the vital role here, he looks extremely talented and never looked to be in trouble any time, Pakistan may have got best batsman their lineup at the moment.
Babar Azam who is just searching for his big score is also playing the brand cricket at the moment and has 50+ average in test in this year which was missing from him.
Pakistan is at 224/4 at the moment,
Babar 25 and Haris 86 at the moment are playing.
