The New Zealand team, touring Pakistan after twenty years, is still 273 runs behind the hosts in the first innings. Conway broke John F. Reid’s national record by completing 1000 Test runs in 19 innings. He was given a life on 57 when Pakistan denied DRS on an appeal to be caught behind.

Devon Conway and Tom Latham scored unbeaten half-centuries as New Zealand scored 165 for no loss on the second day of the first cricket Test in reply to Pakistan’s first innings 438. Conway is playing on 82 and Latham on 78. The New Zealand team, touring Pakistan after twenty years, is still 273 runs behind the hosts in the first innings. Conway broke John F. Reid’s national record by completing 1000 Test runs in 19 innings. He was given a life on 57 when Pakistan denied DRS on an appeal to be caught behind. TV replays showed that Conway’s bat had hit Noman Ali’s ball.

Both the batsmen played the balls of Abrar Ahmed, who took 17 wickets in two Tests against England, with ease. Conway completed his half-century in 89 balls with the help of nine fours. Latham completed his 50 off 96 balls which included six fours. Pakistan’s pace attack was vulnerable in the absence of injured Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah, which the New Zealand batsmen took advantage of.

Earlier, Salman Agha scored an innings of 103 runs, which included 17 fours, by sharing partnerships with the tail batsmen. He was the last Pakistani batsman to be dismissed. New Zealand’s new Test captain Tim Southee dismissed him, his 350th Test wicket. Salman, who made his Test debut against Sri Lanka this year, was well supported by the tailenders. Earlier, Pakistan captain Babar Azam was dismissed for 161 runs on yesterday’s score.
