In their 2nd Innings, New Zealand certainly batted a whole lot better and with Tom Latham 44* and Ross Taylor 49*,they could well salvage something out of this Test, if they can bat the best part of tomorrow.
Pakistan can rejoice in the fact that Yasir Shah took 10 wickets today and looks to be in fine form. Tomorrow should see Pakistan wrapping up this Test match with an innings to spare, however, as the last Test match proved, cricket is a funny old game.
