Welcome to the coverage of day 5. Looks like it's going to be an exciting day of Test cricket. New Zealand lead by 177 runs. Lets see how much more Taylor adds to the total. He's the man, who has to do it for the Kiwis today. Lets see what's in store today!

!

New Zealand lead by 177 runs! Ross Taylor has batted well for his 77 and looked a lot at ease against the spinners. He holds the key for the Kiwis, if they want to bat long and take their lead past 250. Win for them looks slightly difficult and they will want to make sure that they bat at least one session tomorrow to avoid going 0-2 down in the series. Promises to be an exciting finish. Do join us at 1130 IST to catch all the action. Cheers!!!

!

Overs - 30.2, Runs - 113, Wickets - 05. An entertaining session and this Test match is hanging in the balance with just one more day left. After gaining a slender lead, New Zealand started their second innings positively with Brendon McCullum looking in fine touch. But his wicket opened the gate for Pakistan and their spinners just took the advantage by pegging New Zealand back with some quick wickets.

!

The umpires check the light once again and decide to call it Stumps on day 4!

Yasir Shah to Tom Latham

OUT! Nothing conclusive comes out of the review taken by Latham! This means that the ONFIELD DECISION STAYS! Latham is completely disappointed and even Craig McMillan in the dressing room shakes his head with disgust. It was a flighted ball on middle, Latham sits down on his knee to sweep the ball but it hits him close to the glove and the ball goes to leg gully where it is caught. Ali dives full length to his left with awesome reflexes and takes a great catch. The Pakistanis appeal confidently and the umpire agrees with them. Latham takes the review immediately. Replays don't portray the ball in contact with the glove. It did hit his arm though. However, since the replays are inconclusive, Latham has to go.
