  • Pakistan vs New Zealand 2nd test

    Pakistan playing 11: Pakistan escaped a defeat in the first test which would have been their fifth straight test defeat and that in their home ground. Pakistan don’t have the bowlers to pick 20 wickets in a test match and their batting isn’t playing to their strength but trying to adapt an aggressive approach which is clearly not working for them. Pakistan would need to bat with patience just like NZ in the first test. The pitches they produce in Pakistan will end in a draw more often than not and Pakistan aren’t even able to draw the test on flat decks is the most worrying factor.

    • Hasan Ali might make a return to the side in place of Mir Hamza. The left arm seamer didn’t have a good game like all the other Pakistan bowlers.
    • As the 2nd test hs happening on the same venue, Pakistan are expected to persist with the 2 spinners who played the first test.
    • Although Naseem Shah is in the squad, he is playing in the Pakistan cup, hence his availability for the 2nd test is uncertain.
    • If Naseem Shah plays, he will play in place of Mohammad Wasim Jr.
