After winning the first test match by just 4 runs, New Zealand got off to a sour start in the second test match. The Kiwis first allowed the home team, Pakistan to pile up a total of 418. In the next innings, they were jolted to a score of a mere 90 by the sheer brilliance of a certain Yasir Shah.
Before dismissing at a score of 31, Jeet Raval had provided the New Zealanders with a decent start. But, just minutes after losing the first batsman, New Zealand bundled out. Only the top three batsmen could cross the mark of 4 runs for the Kiwis, with Captain Kane Williamson remaining not out at 28. Latham scored a 22. Sadly for the Kiwis, all but two bowed to the magnificence of Yasir Shah. The right-arm leggie ended with the remarkable figures of 41/8.
The Kiwis have been asked to follow-on, they have a tall task cut out in front of them. Kiwis would require to tame Yasir if they need even a glimpse of hope to survive the test match.
