Big, big wicket for Pakistan! Bilal Asif gets Ross Taylor out for 82 and New Zealand are 198/4. Top-spinner by Asif, there's some bounce on it, Taylor's sweep isn't the greatest. It gets the top-edge and taken by Yasir completes a running catch.
Pakistan review. NOT OUT!
Ross Taylor is given out leg before but Pakistan reckon there's something. They decide to review. Abbas gets the ball to beat the inside of Taylor's defence. Umpire says not out. No bat involved, but it is going down leg stump. Pakistan lose both reviews
OUT! NZ Review. OVERTURNED!
Have New Zealand lost another? Henry Nicholls is given out leg before by the on-field umpire but he's gone up to avoid being dismissed for a duck for two straight innings. Pitched outside off and came in sharply to beat the batsman's flick and pin him in front of middle. On replay, it was sliding down the leg side. DRS saves Nicholls.
A ball after bringing up his fifty, Tom Latham is dismissed in controversial manner. Pakistan go up for a caught behind off Hasan Ali! Soft signal is out. Certain noise on the replay and UltraEdge confirms there was an edge. The bat flicked the pad at the same time and Latham is not happy with the decision. But it looks like there was an outside edge too.
First ball of the day is dispatched for a four and it brings up Ross Taylor's fifty. Wasted no time in getting there. New Zealand had taken 26 minutes yesterday for first runs off the bat. Pounces on the widish delivery by Hasan Ali and drives it through the gap at cover-point
