new Delhi: On the second day of the first Test being played between Pakistan and New Zealand, both New Zealand openers thrashed Pakistan bowlers fiercely. By the end of the second day’s play, New Zealand have scored 165 runs in 47 overs. Opener Tom Latham is unbeaten on 78 and Devon Conway is unbeaten on 82. Although Conway got a life on the second day due to the mistake of Pakistan captain Babar Azam. This view was seen on the last ball of the 31st over.
Babar Azam did not take review
It so happened that as soon as Nouman Ali bowled the ball, Conway tried to play it on the off side, but he was caught in this brilliant spin. Initially, Conway tried to come forward to drive, but he realized that the length of the ball was not right. Then he was shocked and the ball went fast and passed between the bat and the pad. Sarfaraz standing behind took the catch, appealed, but the umpire declared it not out. Then the interesting thing is that Pakistan captain Babar Azam decided not to take the review. However, later replays showed that the bat had an inside edge.

Conway proved to be a big wicket
After this the New Zealand opener continued his onslaught. At this time Conway was playing on 57 and he could prove to be a big wicket for Pakistan. Getting Conway’s wicket would not only give Pakistan a big breakthrough, but also New Zealand before the end of the second day’s play. However Conway got a life and Pakistan missed a great chance to get back in the game. New Zealand team is trailing by 273 runs. Now it will be interesting to see how the Pakistan team comes back in the game on the third day.
