Kyle Jamieson made a crucial late breakthrough to put New Zealand on top against Pakistan at the end of the second day of the first Test in Mount Maunganui on Sunday.

Abid Ali was on 19 with nightwatchman Mohammad Abbas yet to score as Pakistan reached stumps at 30/1, still 401 runs behind New Zealand’s 431. 

New Zealand had resumed the day on 222 for three with captain Kane Williamson on 94 who then brought up his 23rd Test century with a clinical cover drive off Nassem Shah.

Playing alongside Williamson is a lot of fun, said BJ Watling. “Twenty-three centuries is pretty special, and he’ll hate me for saying it, but he’s right up there among New Zealand’s greats. “There’s not a lot of chat when batting with him but playing with him is obviously a lot of fun.”

Brief scores: New Zealand 431 (K. Williamson 129, BJ Watling 73; S Afridi 4/109);  Pakistan 30/1. At stumps, Day II.
