NZ 222/3 on a Green Pitch. Shaheen Shah Afridi Picked up three wickets.
Pakistan win the toss and select to bowl. Rizwan, the debutant skipper, looked somewhat nervous during the coin throw yet that is reasonable. He maybe won’t be the point at which his bowlers are working on that deck (although, again, I’ll say that it’s not “very” green).
It was a decent day for host New Zealand, NewZealand lost the toss however end of the day immovably ahead. It’s all gratitude to the middle pair of Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson, both of whom consolidated to put on 120 runs for the third wicket when things were extreme. That is when Shaheen Shah Afridi had his tail in the mood for choosing the two openers. He’d pick Taylor excessively later, and was the solitary bowler with wickets to show for on the first day of the season.
Williamson had dropped 3 times so he took advantage of it and made a sensational 94* on the first day.
How can Pakistan come back tomorrow?
