Pakistan vs New Zealand 2014, 3rd Test at Sharjah Day 3: Daniel Vettori dismissed by Rahat Ali


Nov 29, 2014

Daniel Vettori was dismissed off the bowling of Rahat Ali for a run-a-ball innings of 15, after the latter bowled him a full-length delivery that trapped him leg-before, apparently headed for the leg-stump. New Zealand lost their fifth wicket for 528 runs as a process.

Vettori, who was promoted to the sixth position, hit three boundaries during his brief stay at the crease. The two batsmen at the centre thought of going for the review for a moment, but decided against it. It was shown in the replays later that the ball would have gone to hit the leg-stump.

New Zealand resumed from a score of 488 for three after tea, and were put on the backfoot when Kane Williamson was dismissed on a score of 192 off 244 deliveries off the very first ball of the final session. Williamson tried to push a rising delivery that was pitched outside off, but managed to edge it to the slips, where the ball landed in the safe hands of Younis Khan. New Zealand soon crossed the 500-run mark, courtesy Corey Anderson’s big hitting.
