Watch Pak v NZ 1st test day 4 full highlights today from Hagley Oval, Christchurch (New Zealand) Sunday 20th November 2016. Pakistan batted first and scored 133 runs in their first innings and New Zealand scored 200 runs in their first innings.
Now Pakistan is at 129 with seven down and leads by 62 runs with 3 wickets remaining. Pitch behavior has not changed much enough, bounce and turn were almost the same last two days it means if somehow Pakistan will succeed in giving the lead of minimum 150 runs then they are still in the game.
JA Raval scored 55 runs off 121 balls and out, when it happens then it was 39.3 they’ve caught one in the slips off Amir! He pitched it on a great length outside off and got the ball to straighten a touch off the pitch.
Raval was caught on the crease as he prodded at it with no real footwork, the outside edge flew straight and fast to Sami Aslam at first slip. Top start for Pakistan this morning 109/5.
HM Nicholls contributed 30 runs, C de Grandhomme scored 29 runs, TG Southee 22. Rahat Ali dismissed four New Zealand wickets in 15.5 overs and gave 62 runs, Sohail Khan and Mohammad Amir they took three wickets each of them.
