When will NZ consider declaring

by the end of today...they will lead by 225....so I guess.....at most they will bat 10 overs tomm & set Pak 275 to win or survive in 80 overs
NZ almost finished with my perfect script with the bat
and now with the ball also going also like I would like 50-4......I am counting a few dollars Cool

On a spinning pitch when you get to the 4th inning & that too by 5th day...you don't need mystery spinners.....the moderate spinners just need to "put it there" & it will spin....and occasionally explode.....and if the spinner has an odd variation it will stand out too making life further difficult for batters.

And These 2 are doing it perfectly.......both have one variant arm ball and using that to good effect

55/5. Could be all over by tea. Should be. Probably New Zealand's greatest ever test series win.

Never count out Pakistan's utter lack of spirit and professionalism. Agree this would be NZs greatest ever series win

NZ into the tail now. Bilal Asif, batting at 8 with a Malcolmian Test average of 8.3 will have to play out of his skin here!

Thirty more overs for the rabbits to hang in with Babar...not impossible , but NZ will fancy their chances.
NZ wasting one of their reviews on an optimistic attempt to win a "head before wicket" decision. He did duck low ; but really...

Some impressive resistance, then, from the Pakistani middle order.

New Zealand will be thinking one will bring two, but it's getting tighter.

They did lose one test by an innings, but away wins for NZ against decent test sides are very rare.


30 overs is a huge ask

Well bloody done New Zealand. clap

Kane Williamson is in the same category as Kohli, Root and Smith.

Tbf the tails probably done better than its collective ability would suggest it had been likely to do.

Thats not saying a lot though

Pakistan need to look at that tail. You can't have four rabbits from 8 onwards nowadays, it's arguably cost them the two defeats here. They need to look more at the combination and maybe compromise on the bowling a little to get more batting in there.

In the past half decade, Kane Williamson averages 65 in the 2nd innings (for his team, so either 3rd or 4th innings of the match). The next highest average is 51 (Angelo Mathews), with Kohli, Root and Smith in the mid 40's.

An exceptional player

The Akmal blood runs true through Babar's veins. Azam is the next Pakistan 'superstar' batsman, I don't see it, but the brainless batting with the tail shows he's far from understanding his role. Why on earth did he keep taking singles of the first balls of the over to expose Yasir and the other tailenders?

So how did P lose this series, but full marks to NZ. Who'd be a Pakistan fan? Brilliant one minute, hopeless the next. Disagree about the importance of second-innings batting stats (see above) as it's first-innings knocks that tend to shape matches. But completely agree about just how good Williamson is.
