Pakistan vs New Zealand, 2nd Test | NZ vs PAK WHO WILL WIN After scripting a sensational heist in the first Test, a resurgent New Zealand will aim for a rare overseas series win when they take on hosts Pakistan in the 2nd Test on Saturday.
Confident New Zealand aim a series win; Pakistan look to shrug off the blemish
It wasn't supposed to happen,; at least not when the Kiwis were knocked over for 153 in the first innings; and certainly not when Azhar Ali (65) and Asad Shafiq (45) had taken the hosts to 3-130- just 45 runs away from the target, but then it is Pakistan whose ability to buckle down under scoreboard pressure never ceases to amaze. Last year they had fallen short by 21 runs while chasing 136 against Sri Lanka, they took that Hara-kiri to a whole new level in a thrill-a-minute 4-run loss at Abu Dhabi. Ajaz Patel celebrated his debut with a match-winning 5-59 and Neil Wagner bowled a marathon 13-over spell in the sweltering Abu Dhabi heat as Pakistan crumbled to hand the Kiwis the narrowest win in their Test history. The second Test now offers a chance to New Zealand to complete a rare series win in the UAE but as they say – Underestimate Pakistan at your peril.
