Four wickets for Mohammad Asif have left the first Test between Pakistan and New Zealand finely poised heading into the final day in Dunedin.

Asif took four for 41 as the Black Caps collapsed to 147 for eight on day four at the University Oval - a lead of 244 runs - after earlier bowling out Pakistan for 332.

The loss of early wickets didn't phase Ross Taylor who racked up his second half century of the match before a mix up saw him run out for 59.

Peter Fulton was next to go for a duck after not challenging an LBW decision that replays proved was not out.

The match in evenly poised with the Black Caps looking to build on their 244 run lead on Day 5 before having a crack at Pakistan.
