Rain leaves Black Caps on top
Less than half of day three of the second Test in Hamilton saw any action, as rain curtailed the day and left New Zealand with a lead of 55 runs.
Pakistan had managed to take their overnight score from 76 for five to 216 all out, before the Black Caps faced just one delivery on the day.
As such, the Kiwis’ first innings score of 271 looked rather good, thanks to a six-fer from veteran paceman Tim Southee.
Babar Azam was the lone real challenger for Pakistan, as he ended the dig on a frustrating 90 not out as he ran out of batting partners.
Sarfraz Ahmed (41) and Sohail Khan (37) had provided some assistance on the intermittent day, and Pakistan will hope for more rain to bolster their hopes of survival.
New Zealand lead the series one nil.
