  • Pakistan lose Abid Ali, Haris Sohail and Fawad Alam early on
  • Jamieson takes 4 wickets for New Zealand 
  • Azhar Ali, Rizwan and Faheem Ashraf lead Pakistan fightback 

CHRISTCHURCH: A formidable innings by right-handed batsman Azhar Ali led the inexperienced shirts’ fightback towards the Kiwis on Sunday in the course of the first day of the second Check match towards New Zealand. 

Pakistan have been 225/5 after 60 overs with Azhar Ali batting at 91 and Faheem Ashraf on 32. 

Pakistan’s opening order as soon as once more didn’t impress, collapsing like a home of playing cards towards New Zealand’s tempo assault. Jamieson proved to be the choose of the bowlers, choosing up 4 wickets courtesy of his disciplined bowling. 

When New Zealand captain Kane Williamson received the toss his response was “bowl, obviously” when requested what he wished to do on the inexperienced Hagley Oval floor.

The choice was vindicated when Tim Southee trapped Shan Masood straight in entrance with a toe-crushing yorker within the third over.

But it surely was to be one other 16 overs and 62 runs earlier than Pakistan misplaced their second wicket.

Nicks that have been caught behind the stumps within the first Check went extensive of the cordon as Abid and Azhar Ali set about rebuilding the innings.

However, on the ultimate ball of Jamieson´s fifth over, Abid Ali went for 25 when a lighter edge was held by Southee at second slip.

Two balls into his subsequent over Jamieson had Haris Sohail caught within the gully by Henry Nicholls for one and in his following over he had Fawad Alam caught behind for 2.
