But considering how the game was going into lunch Newzeland will take the score at the end of the day with both hands and try to get maximum as possible tommorow morning.
They some how managed to build on from 72 for 4 wickets to 229 for 7 wickets to get a somewhat respectable first inning score on score card.
Taking into mind that there will be some assistant for spinners going into fourth and fifth days anywhere closer to 280 from here for Newzeland boys must be the target as per view to force a challenge.
Highlights for the day were Captain Kane Williamson's patient 89 runs knock off 176 balls and For Pakistan always the highlight was spin Duo Yasir Shah who took 3 wickets and Bilal Asif who took 2 wickets.
Match summary at the end of Day 1 is as follows:
NEW ZELAND(1 st inning) 229-7(90 overs)
Kane Williamson 89 Yasir Shah 3-62
BJ Watling 42 Bilal Asif 2-57
