Trouble for Pakistan in chasing New Zealand’s target of 319 runs

0 minutes, 33 seconds Read

New Zealand declared their second innings ten minutes before closing on 277–5, with Michael Bracewell hitting a career-best 74 and Tom Blundell scoring 74 – the pair sharing a 127-run partnership for the fifth wicket Of.

Bracewell, however, still feels that the match can go either way.

“Obviously scoring 319 on the last day is a tough task, but the wicket hasn’t deteriorated too much, so I think it’s still very much in balance,” he said.

“The first hour (tomorrow) will go a long way in winning the match for either side.”

Pakistan had taken control of the match, with New Zealand struggling from 76–1 to 128–4 at lunch, removing Tom Latham (62), Kane Williamson (41) and Henry Nicholls (five).
