Pakistan v New Zealand 2nd Test Day 4 2023 news

Day 4 of the 2nd Test between Pakistan and New Zealand in Karachi.

Two late wickets give New Zealand a slim advantage as Pakistan aim to chase down 319 on the final day.

Cricinfo reports at stumps:

No prizes for guessing which team will be sleeping more soundly tonight. New Zealand are psychologically ahead, but don’t rule Pakistan out just yet. They are only one big partnership away from making the visitors nervous. Either way, a potentially exciting fifth day awaits, as we bid you goodbye for today. Thanks for your company!

If New Zealand’s relatively late declaration didn’t arouse any excitement, two late wickets in dying light certain have. Shafique and nightwatcher Hamza sent back to dent Pakistan twice, as they fancy their chances of chasing down 319. But right now, they have nothing on the board, while the pitch has shown signs of misbehaving already: the ball that got Shafique kept low despite being new and hard, while Hamza got a ripper that turned from wide of off to hit middle and leg.

Stumps

  • PAK 408 & 0/2 (2.5 ov, T:319)
  • NZ 449 & 277/5d
  • Imam-ul-Haq* 0(6)
  • Ish Sodhi 1/0 (0.5 ov)
  • Day 4 – Pakistan need 319 runs.
