Azhar got to his fifty off 143 deliveries whereas it too Asmal 188 ball to score his half-century. The New Zealand fast bowlers have worked really hard, but have not been able to get much assistance from the pitch. It still looks a good pitch to bat, with the odd one bouncing a bit more than usual. However, the Pakistan batsmen have negotiated that well so far and will come out in the third session with an aim to give New Zealand a run for their money.

Pakistan resumed the session on 76 for no loss. They will be delighted with the fact that they have lost just one wicket in the post-lunch session. With the likes of Younis Khan, Sarfraz Ahmed and Mohammad Rizwan to follow, Pakistan can surely accelerate at a quick pace and give New Zealand a scare. But the Black Caps will be aware of that and look to tighten the screws, if Pakistan start to score more freely. Live Cricket Updates, Pakistan vs New Zealand, Day 5, 2nd Test at Hamilton
