CHRISTCHURCH: Pakistan lose Azhar Ali and Misbah before the hundred mark as the Greens struggle in the second inning.

Pakistan lead by 55 runs with 3 wickets in hand as Pakistan go down by 122/7. The batsmen have failed to impress in the second innings yet again.

Younis Khan returned to the pavilion making only a single run while Babar Azam, Sarfraz Ahmed and Asad Shafiq all failed to make an impact.

New Zealand were all out in their first innings for 200.

Earlier, Pakistan quick Rahat Ali led a seven-wicket destruction of the New Zealand innings on the third morning to have the first Test delicately poised at Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Saturday.

Faced with a 67-run first innings deficit, Pakistan were six without loss at lunch after rolling New Zealand for 200 in their first innings.

In an action-packed session, New Zealand resumed the day at 104-3 and lost their last seven wickets for 96 runs inside two hours.

Left-armer Rahat finished with four for 62, while Mohammad Amir took three for 43 and Sohail Khan had three for 78.

Colin de Grandhomme continued his remarkable debut for New Zealand with a rapid 29, while lusty hitting at the tail saw Tim Southee add 22 and Neil Wagner 21.

New Zealand´s overnight pair Jeet Raval and Henry Nicholls added only one further run before both were back in the hut as Pakistan made inroads from the third over of the day.
