They are still trailing Pakistan first inning score of 418 by 131 runs.
Batsmen batting at the crease are Ross Taylor on 81 and Henry Nicholls on 23.
New zeland team is not still out of game as if they can go for a lead of 150 plus from here on after covering the deficit they can have a hope of a win as it happened in first test.
But still it won't be easy from here on as 1 wicket or 2 could easily put them in trouble again.
