Tom Latham, the New Zealand opener, has brought up his 4th Test half-century on Day 3 of the opening Test against Pakistan. He’s looked assured in unfamiliar conditions against the Pakistani spinners.

Can he hold out for longer? New Zealand need him to score big if they are to go past Pakistan’s mammoth 566. Latham is yet to score a century in Test cricket. He made his debut against India earlier this year at Wellington. He looks compact at the top, which is a good sign for New Zealand cricket. What would please is that he’s got these runs in conditions in which he’s never played in before.
