Watch Pak v NZ 1st test day 3 full highlights today from Hagley Oval, Christchurch (New Zealand) Saturday 19th November 2016. The first day had been stumped with no play because of rain but the second day was so good. Pakistan batted first and scored 133 runs all out in 55.5 overs, Pakistan performance was not good, expectations were not like that.
Sami Aslam opener of the Pakistan test cricket team scored 19 runs off 54 balls and out, when his wicket down then it was 17.6 caught at second slip! The change of ends has worked for Southee. He’s been on target in these last two overs. Aslam stays in his crease and pokes at a good length ball that angles away from him. Southee has been testing him with ones that bend back in but this one did not. The edge flew through at a comfortable height to the debutant Jeet Raval. Pakistan two down 53/2.
Toss: New Zealand, chose bowl.
