NZ will start the session on 80/2

Pakistan will need to break the partnership between Guptil and Taylor very quickly post lunch.
My psychic powers are telling me we will witness NZ collapse in the 2nd session :moakram
need guptill & taylor out immediately after lunch...

this pitch is another much for the seam & bounce that every expert was yapping about :facepalm:

just need to continue to build pressure and wickets will come Inshallah!
Pakistan usually come back very strongly after Lunch or Tea so hoping for some quick Kiwi wickets
missed first session, can i get a quick summary? how's the bowling been? ik there's been the couple sketch umpire decisions.

first wicket of mcullum looked dead plumb but wasn't out. then guptil edged it and wasn't given and the kane williamson got out by eding the ball to the keeper.
Gul taking both wickets
The markets are crazy. The wicket looks placid and I can't see our batsmen failing so bad that we're all out twice by day 5.
wahab bowling way to wide again. when will the selectors ever learn
Right thats my midnight dinner complete.

Refreshments and snacks at the go and a bottle of water to keep me up throughout day 1.

Let the destruction of kiwi wickets after lunch commence :)
I didnt watch much once Taylor got a four to his name and just checked it out on cricinfo that runs are coming off easily. May tune in to watch a little bit of the 2nd session seeing how Tanvir did in the morning won't be a pleasant site unless things change drastically for him in the 2nd session.
NZ would've been 3 down by now if it wasn't for Harper becoming a deaf spectator and not giving Guptil out caught behind off Gul. Luckily he decided to dully lift up his hand after Williamson had nicked one behind off Gul as Williamson had also thought of not walking off like his partner Guptil as the umpire didn't say out.
Why is Misbah not using Hafeez as a bowler? Hafeez and Rehman could both keep things tight, Tanvir is going to leak runs.
With Tanvir getting selected at the age of 32 to represent Pak after a good domestic season, then even Aizaz Cheema deserves a crack now at the international level with some good domestic performances by him so far.
Why the hell don't they talk about Pak Vs NZ historic matches. Who cares about some ancient Eng/NZ game.

Talk about :akhtar owning the NZ batting line or maybe that time where :wasim and :waqar ran through every batsman and made them all look like tailenders.
pitch is flatter than the 1st test...will be a hard toil for the bowlers today...need to try our level best to restrict them under 300...
Lol @ Ramiz trying to get involved.

The great WG grace. :raja
Smithy looks like he ate Simon Doull for lunch.
